When you picture yourself on vacation having a relaxing lunch or sitting by a bar sipping on cocktails, what do you imagine? A laid-back atmosphere. Tasty, yet simple food. Good service. A fully stocked bar. Well, you’re in luck.

Located just one block from the sea, Básico Cocina de Playa encompasses what holidaymakers need in a beach restaurant/bar. The clean, fresh look works perfectly in Holbox, creating a tranquil place to spend an afternoon or evening. The space is completely open and raised with comfortable seating areas looking out onto the sandy streets below – excellent for people-watching or catching a glimpse of island life. This contemporary restaurant/bar also has regular events in the evening – DJs and live music. It really does have it all.

And Básico doesn’t just look good; their food and drink menu offers a range of classic dishes with a modern twist, combining the traditional flavours of Mexican cuisine with some yummy international alternatives. Their experienced chefs have been brought over especially from Mexico City in order to offer customers the high-quality you would expect of such a well-run establishment. Shrimp tempura tacos, fresh lobster risotto, mustard beef tartare.

In terms of drinks, you can find almost anything you might fancy. Fresh juices, good coffee, spirits, delicious cocktails, and more. It's worth ordering a cocktail just to see the bar staff show off their mixology skills - very impressive!

Open all day, Básico does breakfast, lunch and dinner – we’re sure you will be back to try it all, or maybe just never leave!
