“A great place for lunch!”
Review of Villa Mar

Villa Mar
Ranked #37 of 111 Restaurants in Holbox Island
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 December 2017

Villa Mar is on a corner, where the main street turns east along the beach (the opposite side of the island from the ferry dock).
There is a bar, with swings, and the tables are on the sand under sunshades or palapas. The staff are gregarious and fun. The beer (and sodas) are cold and the food is generous and fresh.
We ate lunch here four times between 22 & 28 November 2017. Some of our favorites were the Coconut Shrimp, Shrimp Ceviche, Shrimp Moho de Aho, Guacamole, Fish Ceviche, and the Whitefish Moho de Aho.

We went arrived here shortly after sunset - around 8-8:30 PM on Monday, Aug 14 for dinner. They were out of fish!! I was in the mood for seafood and the other seafood menu items (i.e. shrimp) were 30% more expensive. The restaurant area was full and the staff was overwhelmed. They were also confused when we ordered our beers to be opened in front of us. So we left without eating or drinking; deciding to pay extra for service and a quiet place next door.

Pricey even for Holbox, and the food wasn't good enough to justify the prices. We decided to splurge on the lobster after seeing it for 450 pesos on multiple menus, and it was disappointing. Dry, overcooked, and lacking flavor -- we didn't even finish it. The fajitas de tierra y mar featured steak and shrimp and those were good, but nothing mind-blowing. Great view of the beach though!

We had lunch at Villa Mar based on good reviews about the fish tacos. It was okay, but nothing special.

Stopped by for lunch since this was close to our hotel. The service was good, the food was great and the margaritas were good as well. This is a bar / restaurant right on the beach ... in fact, it almost is part of the beach. Great atmosphere to spend a laid back few hours.
