We've been stopping in for the last three years for breakfast. Everything has always been great and unbelievably inexpensive. A great breakfast for two can be had for $200 - $300 pesos (including a cocktail). Love it!

We went here for breakfast and were so delighted that we came for dinner again. Everything was perfect! Best burrito ever! Huevos divorciados absolutely delicious. The spicy salsa is awesome. Cheap prices - especially for Isla Mujeres. Great WiFi

I like little places like this. I go in with modest expectations and I love it when the food exceeds them. Ambiance is modest, and homey. Service pretty quick. Food quality was impressive. Would go again for sure.

We visited because this restaurant was getting such good reviews. Not sure if they were having an off day, but the food was hopelessly drab and flavorless.
