Isla Mujeres Restaurants

Dining on Isla is a casual affair, and much more affordable than in neighboring Cancún. Restaurants tend to serve simple food like seafood, pizza, salads, and Mexican dishes. Fresh ingredients and hospitable waiters make up for the island’s lack of elaborate menus and master chefs. It’s cash-only in most restaurants. If credit cards are accepted, you’ll most likely pay an additional 5% service charge. It’s customary in Mexico for the waiter to bring the bill only when you ask for it ("la cuenta, por favor"). Always check to make sure you didn’t get charged for something you didn’t order, and to make sure the addition is correct. The "tax" on the bill is often a service charge, a sort of guaranteed tip.

Though informal, most indoor restaurants do request that you at least wear a shirt and shoes. Some outdoor terrace and palapa restaurants also require shoes and some sort of cover-up over your bathing suit.
