They did have a nice curry fish. They were just in a bad location. Sad to see it go. There is a taco Gordo there now and they are very average

We really didn't come to Holbox for pizza. We enjoyed a great lunch of pizza and salad. No doubt their pasta is excellent also. Looking forward to visiting again!

We eat at several restaurants in Holbox, this place was nice and okey, but not one of the top 5. The drinks were no good. A starter was really good, fish croquettes. The main courses were okay. Nothing special.
