We stumbled upon this place when looking for another restaurant it is a true local spot. We've had chicken and pork tacos, cheese empanadas, chicken tostadas and hot cakes with ham & eggs so far. We're still here so you never know we might be back. Very good food

Poc Chuc might be really good for other meals, too, but I only had the pleasure of breakfasting, and I'll be back!

Our waiter barely spoke with us and never checked back after taking our order. The food was good, was recommended by a local, and didn't disappoint. Their exchange rate of 17 pesos to the dollar is well under the going rate of 21 pesos to the dollar. Really not a tourist friendly place in my judgement.

It was wonderful to find this gem in Centro. The Mexican food is great and abundant. You can try something new every day and not get tired of it. The fresh fruit juices are wonderful.

Proper Mexican food. Im so glad we went here and tried this little, cosy place. We asked the waiter to cook us the best on the meny and was served fish. The fish was fresh and light like nothing I've ever had before. Yummi. I recommend this place to everyone that want a taste of real mexican food.

My wife and I have been frequent visitors to Isla Mujeres for the past 32 years and this unassuming local restaurant has been one of our favorites! Not only is the food delicious, well seasoned and extremely fresh, but the prices are about half as much as all those tourist places around the corner on Hidalgo. Trust the staff's recommendations.... More

We went here on the recommendation of our hotel (Casa El Pio) - recommended for more authentic Mexican... We were really happy to visit somewhere with more locals present! We went for a very late lunch after a day at the beach and got the last empty table. Based on the recommendations from the owners of our hotel - I... More

Great time with a group of friends here for dinner. Thanks for teaching us about Día de Reyes and letting us try the Rosca de Reyes!

Small and quaint. Nice people and great food. Would recommend the arrachera - nicely marinated and grilled.
