“A nice restaurant overlooking the Zocalo”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Los Peleones is an upstairs restaurant overlooking the main square in Holbox. In the evening, the lighting gives the place a very romantic touch. The menu offers mainly typical fish and seafood specialties but also - and this is its main draw - Argentinian style meats, as well as home-made pastas with unique home-made sauces. I had the Argentinian sausage dish. Lots of tasty and not overly spiced sausages cooked in a tomato-based sauce served with lots of tasty potatoes. Fantastic! The restaurant also features Argente wines (Love that malbec!) by the bottle or by the glass, at reasonable prices.
The second-storey location gives you a great viewpoint to watch all the action in and around the main square. I think this is one of the nicest place to have dinner in Holbox.

“Pleasant location, quaint atmosphere”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Expectations are hard to live up to when your a top rated restaurant. The chef or manager was excellent and provided great service. The food was good, possibly a little overpriced.

“Fabulous food and service”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

The whole experience at Los pellionnes was fabulous.
Great food. we both had the specials of the day which was some of the most delicious pasta we have ever eaten. The staff were charming and one even walked back to our hotel with us to collect payment when we discovered that they could not take our credit card!
Highly recommended!

“Service great food average”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

I agree with another reviewer. After all the positive reviews, I was expecting the food to be a lot better. My husband's fish tasted frozen not fresh. My chorizo was just ok. Thankfully we didn't go for the pricier specials. The waitstaff is very attentive and friendly. It's fun to people watch from the open air roof deck.
