Recommended this place from people we met on the island. Small little room with maybe 6 tables. You would walk right by without thinking of going in. Stop and go in. Best food we ate all week on our trip.
So authentic and homemade.

My husband and I had two meals at Rene y Renee during our last stay on IM. We first had breakfast there one morning where we had fresh orange juice and a bottomless cups of good strong coffee. The pancakes were good, but the chorizo omelet was fantastic. While we were there we talked to Rene about the other food he serves and were able to return for dinner a couple of days later. Rene raved about his fresh margaritas so we each ordered one and they disappeared very quickly so we had 2 more. Soooo gooood! The chips, salsa and guacamole were all perfect appetizers. I had the chicken enchiladas which were huge and had a yummy sauce, my husband had seasoned grilled chicken breast which he loved as well. Everything we had we enjoyed very much. What we enjoyed the most was Rene. He has such a friendly rapport with his customers and is proud of the great food his place serves. We have been to IM three times and when we return we will definitely head to Rene's place for a meal or two.

Rene will tell you when you walk by that he has the BEST food on the Island. And he is telling the truth. I believe his wife is cooking. And that is the whole staff. You cannot go wrong with anything you order. The day we were there he said the fish and shrimp were outstanding but we don't eat seafood. As always, the guacamole was top notch and the best chicken burrito on the Island! Stop and say hello to Rene and let him make you a margarita and have lunch or dinner! Shoes are not required!

My son stumbled upon this place while our stay on Isla Mujeres. Very small restaurant, but we felt like we had been invited to an old friends for lunch. Love the hospitality and the food! A must see (or shall I say taste) on the island.
