Isla Mujeres eats

It has been a few years since we have been to Isla Mujeres. We are going there for two nights after our 4 nights in Playa next week.

I know some of you have been there recently. Looking for restaurant recommendations. I know some of the oldies and goodies are still there, but would like to hear from folks who have been there recently

I love Bally Hoo (on the water behind the PeMex down from the ferry terminal) for the fresh fish. The fish and shrimp tacos are great. Can't beat it at sunset. I could eat tacos and drink margs there most every day and be happy.
Olivia's is really a great spot for Mediterranean. Really nice setting. It is on calle Matamoros. Reservations are a good idea.
Needing an Americano fix. Jaxs still delivers in that department......great burgers.
On the mid to south end of the island, Mango Cafe is a great breakfast place and apparently lunch as well.
Rubens on Guerrero Ave is simple but very good with fair prices for Mexican and also a solid breakfast stop. Good benny.
La Lomita on Juarez is a really good local Mexican place with reasonable prices as well. Very simple place....nothing fancy. And the owner is a real character.
I have yet to make it to Greenverde, but it gets great reviews.

We were there 2 weeks ago for about the 6th time. Love Roosters for breakfast , The Joint for lunch and Bally Hoo for dinner.Tried Bertha's for dinner as well and we all loved it. Upscale menu with good prices, lovely service and food.Like it better than Lola and Dopi and Rubens .Q'Bravo is also cute and cheap for breakfast or lunch.

One more suggestion....The Soggy Peso....best tacos and margariatas I've ever had----but after two margaritas I had to go to bed. Ha!!! They run a different special daily. I'm not sure which day of the week the special is cheeseburgers but there's a long line/wait. Don't let that scare you off....they're worth the wait!!!!!

I don't know the name (maybe it's already been mentioned) and I can't vouch for the food (I've only had a beer) but that restaurant on the south point has an amazing view on a nice day.
