Marbella Seafood & Grill

Located right next to Albatros Beach Club, this is where you will find fine, fresh cuisine. Their seafood is priced by the kilogram and is the best on the island in our opinion. If you are here for lobster season, that is a must! We also recommend their Spicy Fish nuggets and the Tuna tostadas! Reservations are recommended for evenings.

Taqueria Erika

Looking to eat local? Check out Taqueria Erika! A taco stand located on the side of a busy, residential street in the midisland neighborhood of Selina Grande. This is a popular option amongst locals, here you can pick up to takeaway or sit on one of the tables located by the stand and take-in how popular this little spot is as people stop off to pickup their orders. Try their horchata!

North Garden

You’ll feel like you’re entering someones backyard garden when you come here! Known for having the best Bloody Marys on the island, homemade bagels, a bakery next door, and an amazing menu, this place has it all.

This reggae bar is a MUST! They offer live music and good vibes all around. They even offer a sunset cruise with live music a few times a week. Known for their Frozen Coconut Mojitos and huge drinks, but they also have an awesome food menu.

Step right into this secret gem! From grilled pineapple margaritas, to onion rings, and fresh tuna tartare, this menu is everything!! Call ahead for reservations, and we recommend sitting outside so you can enjoy music from Javi himself!

We like to go to Oscars multiple times on our visits here! Whether we need a late night pizza, or a mid day drink, this is one of our favorites! You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu, and they also deliver!

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!

This outdoor hangout is fun for all ages! They offer live music, corn hole and great food and drinks! We could spend many hours here.

If you are craving Italian food, Rolandi’s is the spot! We love sitting outside and enjoying the atmosphere of Hidalgo while eating shrimp pasta.

This is our go to breakfast spot! They are known for their fabulous mimosas, huevos rancheros, and their stuffed poblano pepper.

Ocean’s is a great option for breakfast, lunch and dinner, located on Isla Mujeres’ main restaurant and bar strip, Avenida Hidalgo, next to their partner restaurant Xantolo. Ocean’s is the perfect location to people watch from in this cozy, open restaurant, or watch as your meal is prepared in their open kitchen.

Cafe Mogagua

Located in the middle of town, this cafe is perfect for breakfast or brunch! They have a huge menu and offer a variety of foods and drinks. Their bagel sandwiches and omelettes are to die for!

Oh My Brunch!

Located in downtown Isla Mujeres, opposite Selina Hostel, with a chic, boho vibe, delicious food and drinks to start the day, and a wonderful service. While it is a little more expensive than some other breakfast spots downtown, it’s a beautiful location with great ‘Instagramable’ food and surroundings.

Soggy Peso

Two words: Pain Killer. You must have one if you come here! Stop in before you start your day and come enjoy the atmosphere with the fun employees and sports gear all around you.

Skulls Landing

Skulls Landing is an Oceanfront Hotel, Bar & Grill located in the heart of Isla Mujeres!
