Very friendly personnel and really tasty food to affordable prices. Its more in the range of the other single € restaurants on Holbox with main dishes around 120-150 pesos. I can easily recommend shrimps in cream sauce - very tasty!

Tried two pastas for a late lunch - 60/120 pesos (with/without meat). Not bad, nor good. Choose it if you are on a tight budget.

I look forward to the ceviche at Buenavista all year. It is my first stop for lunch wen I'm on Holbox. Have yet to be disapointed.

If you're looking for fresh grilled fish in a casual place this is a go to. It doesn't get as much attention as its "ocean front neighbors" although its only 20 meters away from the beach. We had the freshest and tastiest grilled fish. This is a causal and local place but for a fresh fish lunch it's the best... More

Waiters are great they don't stand over you when you eat. The drinks were amazing and the food was great we ate here twice instead of the hotel food which was not very good.

The place looks like it would need a fix up, bit dirty and old. However I don't focus much of those aspects normally when it comes to restaurants, but on the quality of food and service. Service was okay, but food nothing special, actually on of the worse we had in México. The ceviche was a huge portion, but way... More

There was nothing terribly wrong with this place - but there are better places very nearby. It's unlikely that we'll eat here again. We had shrimp ceveche and guacamole. The shrimp and guac were good, but the chips served with the dishes were greasy and hard. (not crunchy - hard, as if they had been re-fried). There was only one... More
