We were exhausted from our full day of travel from the states and this place was a great intro into the vibe of Centro in Isla Mujeres. We sorta just stumbled upon it when looking for a restaurant... Servers spoke good English and were really welcoming. Two for one cocktails, like many places on the island. I also remember it... More

Located in a very crowded area of Hidalgo - people tend to pass this by as there is a bit of a bottleneck in this area. If you get away from the typical tourist fare and try some of the regional offerings you will enhance your vacation.. I tried the Seafood Rice and the Whole Mayan Grilled Fish - and... More

Food took a long time to be served. The dishes were acceptable but nothing to write home about. Also they didn't take credit card.

This place is terrible and we haven't even eaten yet. Have been waiting more than 45 minutes for a taco "special". We don't mind a laid back feel, but this place has let us sit here waiting our drinks dry, no chips or salsa, and no explanation. The food may be good, but we have no way of knowing and... More

We wanted a little taste of the local seafood so we let the waiter work his magic. We ended up with a very nice mix of calamari, octopus, fried and grilled fish, langostino, and shrimp. Everything was quite tasty.

Waiting for an appointment, I stopped here since it is near the dive shop. I'm bit surprised after seeing the other reviews, but the fish tacos were crazy super yummy. Service was fine and wifi worked nicely. Since prices are reasonable and the food arrived quickly, I'll probably dine here again during my trip.

We enjoyed fantastic service and great food at Don Chepo's on a recent trip to Isla. The waiter also was so friendly and attentive, making the good food all the better!

We were given the same menu inside and the price was 120 pesos for the meal. We... More

I didn't like my stop at this restaurant, it was the choice of my gf and I immediately felt like a stupid tourist to have chosen this place. Food and drinks were really basic, you have 3 waiters yelling at walkers in the street to come to the restaurant, what makes me usually run away (still don't understand this marketing... More

The restaurant is directly in the touristic center, which I already don't like too much. There's restaurant after restaurant and the waiters stand in front and try to talk you in. Food was okay, though not worth the price, even if it's not a too expensive place compared to other restaurants. But I doubt that a local would ever pay... More
