a very simple restaurant with plastic chairs yet very friendly staff and very delicious food. We asked to adjust some stuff on the menu for us (cook without coriander) and they did - so the food isnt just prepared in advance which is nice :)

We went to Panchas for dinner and it was so good we came back the next day for lunch because we didnt want ot miss that menu.

Las Panchas is not much different from most Mexican places around - but it is much cheaper. Very good food for the value.

This was our fist stop when we arrived in holbox and it was the perfect way to start the week off. It's right next door to our hotel which made it super easy to visit. The beer is cold and the food was good we had fish and shrimp tacos! We will be back

We visited here based on TA reviews and were happy we did. The restaurant was busy, inviting, colourful, with a nice vibe. There was a mix of locals and tourists. The setting is simple with plastic tables and chairs but nicely done and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and patient. We had ceviche and prawns in chipotle; both were... More

We enjoyed lunch at las Panchas while visiting recently. The server was very friendly and the food was excellent. There was a woman making cocktails next to us with fresh watermelon. Looked amazing! We had shrimp cocktail which was served in a huge daiquiri glass, loaded with shrimp and a sweet and spicy sauce. We also had tacos which were... More

Had the fried chicken empanadas and they were great. Probably one of the least expensive places to eat - lots of locals there.

You have to go there and try their fresh lobster and shrimps. They're to die for. It's a simple town restaurant so don't expect any luxury but be surprised by the freshness and season of their dishes. They let us open our own bottle of wine at no cost if we ordered lobster. Great service. Don't miss the "platanos fritos"... More
