Food at Isla Holbox

Are there any other kind of food available at Isla Holbox than seafood?

Hate to say this, but I do not like seafood that much :(

Thx in advance.

Holbox has an excellent selection of restaurants. Many options other than seafood.

definitely plenty of options other than seafood. there's no more seafood in holbox than anywhere else; yes they're proud of their ceviche and lobster pizza's so promote them, but there wasn't anywhere we went last year that was purely a seafood restaurant.

lots of steak (particularly arrachera which i think is flank or skirt depending where you come from), mixed grills and meat tortilla based options.

We had excellent Filet Mignons at Las Nubes and ESPECIALLY losTortugas (correct if I got that last name wrong).. in fact EVERYTHING we ordered at tortugas was excellent! Also, pork is fairly common i.e. Carnitas, Pibil, etc. There are quite a few resturants with italian influence/... so lotsa pasta!

Lots of Italian food - pizzas, pasta too.

Los Peleones and there is a small cafe by the shopping "mall" with a lovely Italian running the place - best pizza in town and wine, very authentic, can't remember the name.

Ask for the bakery across from the drug store - sandwiches, pizzas, breads, pastries. Very nice.
