We had a very good chicken soup here, and the delicious sopes had fresh and interesting toppings. The owners and locals were very friendly and made us feel at home. A little tricky to find. Good directions given by Gordon in a review here. The "Local List" is very helpful in advance of a Holbox trip.

We got Chicken Soup and tacos. Got a plate of different tacos (they have not menu) and ordered extra of what we liked.

120 pesos for food and drinks for two people. They don't have alcoholic drinks.

Thank heavens for the Holbox Local List (found on TripAdvisor's Holbox Forum). Without it, we never would have found Sirenita, or had the courage to try it. It is located on the east side Calle Esmedregal, just north the intersection of Calle Jeronimo Aguilar (I marked it on OpenStreetMap). If you don’t have a map, go to the SW corner of the town square. Go 1 block west, turn south at the corner where Antonio’s Internet Café is, and it is almost at the end of the block on the left side.

At first, you may not think it’s a restaurant at all, or open. Its interior is spare but clean, with harsh white fluorescent tube lighting – none of the fancy, deliberately-folksy charm some of the other Holbox restaurants cultivate. But you’re not here for ambiance, you’re here for the food – and the food is out of this world.

Don’t speak much Spanish? That’s okay, we didn’t either! The friendly and helpful staff will help you muddle through their selection of options (there is no printed menu). They suggested bringing a couple of platters of different offerings to our table, and we would ask for more of the ones we liked best. It was great! The food was fresh, tasty, delicious, and came out of the adjacent kitchen within minutes of ordering it. Want some beers? They didn’t have any, but one of the employees ran to a nearby market and picked up what we asked for in about 90 seconds. Everything we tried was great, and the prices were a steal. Possibly our best and best-priced meal on the island. Don’t miss it!
