The location alone is worth a top rating, you won't dine closer to the sea anywhere else in Holbox. "Peppe", the Sicilian chef is a cool character and a great cook of "italian meets mexican" cuisine.
Breakfasts and Smoothies are great, and if you like seafood, you have to try the pasta with pesto and shrimps!

One of the high light of our stay in holbox was finding CASANOSTRA .
what a surprise that in a simple island like this you could find such a first class restaurant. We read the reviews and we were curious to try the place. Our aspectation were not only met but well surpassed it.
We had a great experience. Food was exceptional. All the pasta dishes are made with incredible daily home made pasta . As far as sauces you can not go wrong. everyone we tryed in our coming back to Casanostra has been better than the one before. Lobster pasta maybe our top choice. If the food has been fantastic the welcome of the chef beppe and all his team has been even more special. Beppe a true Italian will treat you as family delivering the perfect balance between easy going atmosphere and impeccable quality of food and service. His charming personality and careful manners will pamper you and there is no request that he would not go out of his way in order to Satisfy. Equally so his team will treat you with all the attention and care possible. Do not be surprise if you find yourself keep going back ... Has been inevitable for us as well!!!! Enjoy.

This place is not, what tripadviser makes you expect!

I had a nice steak there once, but our following visit was really poor. It seems the main courses are better than the starters and desserts..

We were in holbox long enough to try all the restaurants of the island. Nothing can match CASA NOSTRA.
"Casanostra on the beach" restaurant it can be hard to find. It is not in the main plaza but on the beach and you enter through the LA PALAPA HOTEL.
A nice terrace next to the water is the enchanting location for one of the best dinner you can have. The atmosphere is warm and relax.
Beppe, the chef and owner of the place , is a native Italian from Sicily. He is going to welcome you graciously with a great smile setting the tone for the whole evening. His young and enthusiastic staff all share the same embracing and fun attitude
Without loosing professionalism and care.
The food is fantastic. All fresh ingredients combined with passion and sophistication by The chef. The menu has a nice selection on dishes but best is to leave it in to Beppe's hands.... You will not regret it. Dinner will be memorable and you will find yourself coming back here again and again.
Our favorite the home made fresh pastA with the seafood sauce and the warm octopus salad. Did we mention that they bake their own bread and dessets and they made true italian gelato??? keep a little space for this as well since it is delicious.
Our rating A+! Thank you Beppe, Irvin, Michael and everyone for such a wonderful treatment. By the way CASA NOSTRA is a 24/7 operation same delights and same treatment for breakfast and lunch.

Went to this restaurant based on reviews on this board and we were not disappointed. I had the lobster pasta and hubby had the local fish of the day. The taramisu was the best we ever had!
