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.

The food here is delicious. Everything is made to order. The ceviche is one of my favorites and the lobster is fabulous! Great local restaurant, child friendly too! Make sure you stop at Toby's for lunch and dinner when you're in Xcalak!

Typical restaurant for this region. Bare bones and simple fare focused on seafood. Cheaper than most of the other places in the village.

Toby's in our view has the best food in town (note: we could not go to the Leaky Palapa, it wasn't open) and is a fun, relaxed dinner.

Laid back, funky. Good service. Be advised, most places in Xcalak are on a U.S. $ economy. We didn't have $$, they couldn't take our credit card due to the manager being gone, and they give you an exchange rate for pesos that is less...More
