I dropped by to have a break from XTC meals at the end of May 2018. Literally 85% of the menu was unavailable, including common things like avocados. I understand this was the off season, but really, why be open when most of your menu...More

During our 2 weeks stay we went several times for dinner. Only had one deception (grilled fish a la plancha was swimming in butter(?) and glazy). Wanted to try the lion fish, but was never available. Grilled lobster was excellent (although we were told at...More

Either we just didn’t appreciate the food we ate there on Super Bowl night or we didn’t order the best of the menu. The caprese salad was excellent, and my wife enjoyed her wings with Parmesan, but my ceviche was tasteless, and the cheesecake was...More

Toby's is a no-brainer in Xcalak. The lion fish ceviche is wonderful but any of the local seafood dishes are winners. Nothing fancy, just great food and Toby there to make you feel good and put a smile on your face.

Toby has the best ceviche ever. Anywhere! Decor appropriate to the rustic small mexican village of Xcalak, but the food is excellent. Toby is a hard working restauranteer in this small village and you will not find a better ceviche anywhere.

This place is awesome. True authentic! I wish I knew the lady's name who prepared our meal. I wish even more that I could have brought her home with me. I am forever ruined to guacamole. And what I mean is this; I am certain...More

Just returned from Xcalak and had lunch with friends twice at Toby's - great fresh fish where if you hit it right you can actually pick out your own fish. Don't let the looks of the place, which is nothing much, deter you from making...More

We stopped in for lunch on Tuesday and were warmly greeted by Toby himself, who led us over to a table under the mangrove trees to hand pick our fresh fish. There were six of us and we shared two rather large fish, one fried...More
