AMAZING! - Edit

We stopped here for dinner one night while on vacation on the island. We would give it five stars if we could, but that is reserved for fully vegan/vegetarian restaurants. We have two vegans in the family, one gluten free, and one pescatarian so the menu was fitting and VERY accommodating for us all! Would truly recommend this restaurant for anyone coming to Isla mujeres. The tamarind sauce is incredible!

Pros: great service, amazing food, reasonably priced

Ok food, lousy service - Edit

The food was basic, nothing special. Very similar to what they offer at Aroma Isla but fewer vegan options and more expensive. You have to ask then to make it vegan as on the menu the dishes are marked vegan/vegetarian so you don’t really know. The waiter was rude but the owner is lovely.

Caribbean Vegan delights - Edit

The white Sands and turquoise water of Isla mujeres are easy on the eyes but a bit harsh on the common vegan eater. lucky for us happy cow led us to this wonderful establishment run by an amazingly attentive American couple who take special care to satisfy their vegan customers. The menu has several nice pickings, specially the noodle dishes such as the drunken noodles (rum based sauce and tangy pineapple pieces make an amazing meal!). The bartenders mix top notch cocktails (we had an amazing bloody Mary) and the smoothies are generously big. Don't hesitate and pay at least one visit at Asia Caribbe. You won't regret it.

Pros: Lots of vegan options. Quality dishes. Great servi

Cons: No vegan desserts, though they said they'll add on

Great Vegan options - Edit

Really lovely couple own this restaurant in the busy north end of Isla Mujeres. They offer amazing vegan and vegetarian options. And after 3 weeks of eating tacos some Asian food was welcomed. My sis and I had rice paper rolls, Singapore noodles and a ginger stirfry, all were super fresh and tasty. Highly recommend.

Pros: Heaps of tasty options , Delicious tofu, Super friendly and accommodating staff

Cons: Serves meat, but at least they have great veg

Friendly place with great food! - Edit

My husband and I went there last night for our first dinner on the island. I had the Tofu Bangkok and he had Drunken Noodle! Both were great! If you don't want a lot of spice, "no spice" still has a little bit of heat, but it's not overwhelming. The staff is very friendly and the owner came over and had a nice conversation with us. Great place! We'll definitely be back!

Pros: Asian fusion, Locally sourced ingredients

Loved it! - Edit

So glad we came to Asia Caribe. The staff was warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. More than happy to go through the menu and explain all of the modifications to accommodate vegans and g-free options. They're working on vegan desserts but they're all available g-free. Can't wait to go back!

lovely owners - Edit

Went here for dinner with my sons and husband, whole family is vegan. I saw a sign that said vegan options so stopped to asked the lovely lady at the front who turned out to be the owner. She gave me a whole run down of all of our options. We had the fresh rolls, Mayan rolls (made vegan by omitting shrimp and and cheese but wrapped in fried plantains!), drunken noodles with tofu, tofu Bangkok. I am so pleased that they are making such an effort to create vegan dishes. My boys liked the Bangkok Tofu. I didn't love their take on the Drunken Noodles which was way too heavy on coconut milk and not like I have had before. The fresh rolls needed more umph like some tofu or fresh mint. That said, there were at least 7 vegan options and the service was fast and friendly. If you want more vegan freindly options, restaurants, and businesses, I would support these folks who are making a very serious and sincere effort.

ADK 30 Jan 2017 - It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. I admire that you have made this commitment and are living it with your entire family. I also appreciate the feedback on what you enjoyed most and least. I can't believe that I've never offered tofu in the vegetarian fresh spring rolls but that would be an easy addition. Usually they have fresh cilantro and basil but mint would also be delicious. We always have mint for mojitos so it's not a stretch. Thank you as well for the vote of confidence in the effort we are making to provide vegetarian and vegan offerings to Isla Mujeres travelers. We'll hope to see you on a future trip.

Just OK - Edit

I ate dinner here once with my dad on our trip to Isla Mujeres in March 2015. I think there were actually just one or two things on the whole menu that were vegetarian. I got a tofu stirfry that was very bland and mediocre. The oil the tofu was fried in even tasted a little 'fishy'... ew. I'd suggest you skip this place and mosey further down the street to Mamacita or Lola Valentina for a guaranteed tasty vegetarian/vegan meal.
