I’ll try to be fair. We arrived the place at 8 pm, service was quite attentive so food and drinks were ordered about 10 min later. At 9 we asked the waiter where the food could have gone. 10 min later it was on the...table. One hour waiting I would say is a bit too much. We had quite some expectations on the food, due to the high ranking here on TripAdvisor, but it was 100% tasteless. I am sorry to say this but that’s the way it is. In fact the worst food we had in these two weeks in Mexico.More

We understand your anger and sincerely apologize. We must recognize that we were overwhelmed by the number of clients we had to serve in one shift last night, despite the lack of necessary collaborators in these complicated days, we always strive to give the best...More

Small, off the main drag restaurant that served some of the best food we had on our trip. The servers were very friendly and efficient. Great food and drinks and highly recommended.

We had the date, walnuts and pear appetizer with a balsamic reduction, I was amazing. For dinner we had the garlic encrusted grouper with fresh vegetables. The dinner was superb.

We went on a Monday night so it wasn't very busy and the service was very quick and attentive. We came because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed! I had the octopus which was cooked perfectly; flaky and had lots of flavor....My boyfriend had the tacos, which were spectacular. I only wish we'd been there on a night where they had live music to fully experience it, but that was on us. Definitely make a stop here when visiting Isla.More

Everything was extremely fresh. The most amazing fish tacos I’ve tasted on the island (homemade tortillas)and I also had a shrimp dish with coconut rice that was outstanding

We have been to Isla 5 times and this is in our top three meals. Absolutely delicious. I had the Chicken Florentine which was juicy and fall apart tender - amazing. My partner got the grilled snapper and it was equally wonderful. They had live...music and the art on the walls was beautiful. Highly recommend!More

Love this restaurant! We’ve eaten here three times this trip and enjoyed live music each evening. Very relaxing atmosphere, clean bathrooms and the staff are lovely! Highly recommend the filet mignon, tacos, octopus and the potato soup! Indoor and outdoor seating available with a gallery...to browse through. Excellent food and definitely a must when you are here!More

I passed by this little gem multiple times and even took photos of the outdoor artwork without realizing it was a fantastic restaurant. Its located in a little street and can be easily missed if not paying attention. I was looking for a place to...have lunch on a separate occasion and decided to try it. I looked it up on trip advisor and was amazed by its excellent reviews. The restaurant is quaint with beautiful artwork and paintings. It has indoor ( including a bar area) and outdoor dining. In the evenings, diners are entertained by a saxophone player—wonderful music in a serene and relaxed environment. The reviews are accurate! I had three meals here, and I will say that they were the best meals I had this trip ( and I tried multiple restaurants). The menu has a variety of meals to pick from seafood, chicken, beef, and others, with a great selection of wines, beer, and cocktails. My server Roman was one of the kindest people I have met. He had great recommendations, my favorite being the grilled grouper. Roman took his time to explain the menu and provided timely and excellent service. The rest of the staff was great too, and the teamwork was evident. I would probably dine here again if I weren't catching a flight back home.More

The service was excellent, food delicious and beer unique. I have already been here twice in 1 week and felt it was only right to leave a review. The menu has many delicious options and the food was cooked perfectly. We went family style and...ordered multiple plates to share. The owners was also present and guided us with some of his favorite recommendations. Don't think twice, just show top and enjoy!More
