Tasty steak and a wonderful shrimp dish. The latter with three types of chilli in a complex but not hot sauce. Let's call the service and facilities 'relaxed' . We enjoyed talking to the chef. This meal we will remember.

I have traveled to many places around the world and have not tried better! From the service to the food! Way beyond anything you can imagine. It's a must try when in Holbox!

Its true! When the food runs out for the evening you'll just have to try tomorrow. We didn't think other reviewers could be correct on this point, but just in case we came at 7:30 and boy so glad we did two parties after us...More
Chef comes to table and describes four meals for the evening. I had fish, my husband had shrimp .. both first rate fare! Unique experience, on a unique street, in a unique little town!
There is no menu posted here, but don't let that intimidate you! The chef offers 4 choices each night, usually a lobster, a fish, a shrimp or chicken and a steak dish. He comes to the table to explain the preparation and take your orders....More
