We had a little time to kill before our boat left so we stopped here for a beer and a snack. The fish tacos and guacamole were delicious! Nice water view and good service as well.

Service was pretty awful, they spent more time standing on the walkway trying to get people inside than they did taking care of the customers they had. They were also a pretty spendy place, I feel there were other restaurants with better selection and fares. There was a guy going around taking photos of tourists and charging money. At first we thought he was part of the restaurant until our waiter warned us about him, but they let him stay bugging the customers.

This restaurant is our favorite on Isla Mujeres. We've eaten there on previous visits and were back there a couple of times this visit. Food is delicious, the location is good and the staff are excellent.

We went here to get my husband's beloved Mexican shrimp cocktail. It did not disappoint. No better place than Isla with all the access to fresh crustaceans. The cocktail is loaded with them. On a whim we decided to try the flan for dessert. Oh. My. Word. It will ruin you on eating flan anywhere else. It's not just the taste. It has a texture like ricotta. Incredible.

We ate at Mocambo 3 times in a week. The best was the whole fish (snapper) deep fried and it was fantastic really fantastic. The ceviche was good too. When we sat down we got our drinks from a smiling waiter. While we were waiting some fishermen brought in a box of fish - fresh out of the ocean! We had a dinner and drinks for 4 and the tab was about $20 per person - screaming good deal and the food was ....did I say fantastic. Our drink waiter brought out the margaritas balanced on his head. yeah it's a stunt but it was fun. The manger is an Anglo in paradise and he knows Mexican culture as well as how to please his clientele. One of the top spots on the island
