This is a very small cafe on Hidalgo Street near the north end of the island. We shared a large paella dish made to provide for four of us. It was outstanding - rice, shrimp, octopus, clams, mussels, squid, chicken, and chorizo. We plan on returning later this week to try other dishes.

It's a very small operation. The owner took our orders and delivered the food. We saw only one cook. Perhaps there was a dishwasher too but we didn't see one.

The owner was very nice and explained the menu to us. Certain of the dishes come with a drink so we got a couple Margaritas to start.

I ordered shrimp tacos and my husband had a shrimp burrito with chipotle sauce. While we waited for them, the owner brought homemade tortilla chips and salsa. The chips were warm and delicious. We ate all of them and got a second serving.

When our food arrived, it was presented nicely. Both our orders were terrific. Both were filled with shrimp. Mine had no side dish but my husband's burrito came with a small salad.

We highly recommend eating here on your visit to Isla Mujeres. Pay in pesos as it's a better deal,

We have both had lunch and dinner here and it was some of the best food during our trip.
For dinner we tried the lobster tacos - they were absolutely amazing!
We also had a fantastic ribeye steak - one of the beat steaks I’ve ever had!
The owner takes great pride in serving good food which you can really feel.

We ate lunch here and it did not disappoint. We had the lobster tacos and chicken burrito... both were excellent. It was Christmas Day and some of the waiters did not show up.. so the owner did everything he could to still accommodate us and provide excellent services. He was such a nice and trusting gentleman.. where I didn’t think I had enough cash to pay (I didn’t know they didn’t accept credit cards) and he was not worried about it at all.. told us to enjoy our day and stop back by anytime after we found an ATM.. i needed up having enough to pay and tip.. but such a nice gesture. Highly recommend!

Had the prime rib and herbed shrimp. The steak was really good, and at a cheap cost. The young staff were extremely kind and happy to host us. Neat little place with great food!
