Overrated. Decent Mexican fare, nothing speak aloud. The servers were very overwhelmed for no reason.

Top rated but off night . Friendly staff but very poor service. We waited long for our cold food that was over cooked. It was Xmas day so I'll try again

Rosa Mexicano was delicious and the staff was incredible! The host spoke great English and was super nice. If you're staying in Holbox for even one night, definitely make sure to eat at Rosa Mexicano!

Very good food, good prices and friendly stuff. Unfortunately a bit noisy because of construction work and the main road of the island.(yes there is traffic on holbox, the.gold cart are not electric) Therefore..come after 7pm, order a very good ceviche, a beer and a desert for 10 euros and be happy.

Meal was OK but seems overrated compared to other restaurants that we went to. Prices were reasonable but I rather pay a bit more and really have a great meal.

We sat around 9:30-10p and there were other occupied tables when we arrived. Services was efficient and friendly. The food was delicious. And the mojitos weren't bad either 😊. I had an amazing shrimp dish w/green sauce. Very similar to a cerviche. My husband had beef. Two totally different dishes both equally good.

We arrived when it was empty but quickly filled. We had a big table so we were expecting some delays but we ended up waiting a long time for one dish. What made the experience great is that both the manager and the chef came to our table to personally apologize. The chef was so nice, she had an injury... More
