Whether you are looking for a bite to eat or an adult beverage, Isla Mujeres offers something for everyone. The main restaurant and entertainment area is located at the north end of the island around Hidalgo Street near Playa Norte. However, there are many great restaurants throughout the Centro (town center), the Mid-Island Bay Area, and along the Sac Bajo road along Isla's western shore. Here are some of our favorites...

Named after an Isla Mujeres favorite who lost his battle with Covid. Their crispy tacos stole our party of 20's heart, and their lobster pesto fettuccini. They have a GREAT breakfast as well!
