We were so curious to try the stone crab...now we know why it is called "stone"...the waiter brought a hammer to the table.....showed me how to crack this critter! Fabulous as was all the food at Viva Zapata. We stayed at Mawimbi and this restaurant is only a few minutes walk - well worth it!

great seafood, open air atmosphere, live music, attentive wait staff, quite affordable! We had the surf & turf mixed grill that included chicken, beef, sausage, fish, lobster, shrimp, and ceviche and every bit of it was delicious.

We stopped here on our first night on Holbox. We were seated upon arrival. The place has a dirt floor and the waiters did not wear shoes. The atmosphere is fun. We ordered fish tacos and beef fajitas. We received the chips and sauces soon but waited a really long time for our meal. Unfortunately the waiter had forgotten to enter our order and this was noticed by the cook who was nearby our table. The menu is extensive but we didn't return during our visit.

Jorges, Our Taxi Driver suggested we eat here, so Happy we did, not disappointed.
I had Filete Chendorito, I think House Specialty. Cooked perfect, interesting taste.
My husband had Tacos del Pescado so fresh melted in his mouth.
Thanks for a great meal. Enjoyed the Atmosphere.
