Always love sitting upstairs on balcony, so relaxing and nice. Staff was friendly and welcoming as always. Our whole family has eaten here, usually several times, each trip. Sadly the food was just okay this time and upstairs was so very crowded with a lot of VERY drunk people watching a game. There are always games on but never had... More

While this restaurant has a very USA feel to it (in fact it seems to cater to US residents) which may or may not be what you're looking for on a trip to Mexico, the view is amazing, the staff is super nice, efficient and helpful and the nachos are excellent. We visited this place a few times because of... More

Ate here twice this trip, first night we arrived, and loved the traditional Mexican food. We next had cheese burgers and they were AWSOME! Just what we needed near the end of the trip. They always have football on the TV's, last year we caught the Detroit Lions beating the Green Bay Packers it was awesome as Detroit had not... More

My wife and I returned to the island during college football season and once again got to watch the OSU game at Jax. The game was a blowout, but getting to watch it with views of the beach and cheap buckets of beer made for a very entertaining afternoon.

We had the lobster dinner and the coconut shrimp. Both were very good. We sat on the upstairs deck and really enjoyed the view out across the beach and the bay. There is some road noise and also some noise from a bar next door, but it's worth it for the view. The food was very good 4/5, but it... More

We did not eat here, but saw some food that looked very good. We sat outside on the upstairs deck. It is an area with quite a bit of activity. Moderate amount of traffic noise if you are outside, but a great place to sit and watch the workings of Isla Mujeres. It also has a nice view of the... More

It was our only meal on the island and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. My friends had the luau (possibly not how you spell it) burger and aaid it was better than the ones they had just had in america. I also enjoyed my steak sandwich- not too chewy and all freshly made.

Great place to watch sports, and enjoy an ocean front view. Have a big menu, best cheeseburger on the island. Friends had fish and chips and thoroughly enjoyed. The Habenaro Margs were fabulous!
