This was unquestionably the best restaurant in Holbox, run by a Mexican/Italian couple. Pastas and Italian fare that rivalled any big city restaurante Italiano. I took my family there on Tuesday for my Mom's birthday and was disappointed to find that Los Pelones( The Bald Ones) had grown their hair back and moved to Solferino.
The food is OK but the days of the big chalkboard menus, great pastas and gelatos are gone. This restaurant was a treat that I always looked forward to when in Holbox.

We were at holbox for our honeymoon for 4 days in august. We arrived at this amazing restaurant on our final night, and we were very upset we had to leave the next day and couldnt return!!
This is a perfect place, overlooking the lovely holbox street, with excellent service and the higlight- the food: everything we ate was perfect, and they made the best Muhito i drank in mexico.
You must visit! Just be adviced, when we were there they were closed during lunch,so plan going for dinner!!
Lovely, lovely, lovely-would love to return!!!!!

Good good good restaurant!
All the plates ( fishes, pastas...) were cooked very well. The place is very nice and the owner is a beautiful person, so kindly!
We didn't spent much ( only about 400 pesos) and the food was abundant and excellent!! Perfect interpretation of the italian cousine made by italian people!!

This is our second visit to Holbox and the food is even better this time. The pasta at Los Pelones is homemade and very fresh. I had the tagliatelle with pesto and prawns and my husband had the mushroom ravioli with the gorgonzola sauce! Both were very flavorful and comparable to the fresh Italian you can get here in St Louis in the famous "The Hill" neighborhood. The restaurant is up the stairs and we caught a nice breeze even at 6pm. The overall experience was excellent.
