I love stepping in and seeing the gloriously mismatched painted wood chairs and tables, the bright red and green wood handrails, and the feeling of strolling through the kitchen of a family filled with love.
I always start off with a cold Negra Leon beer--Miramar is one of the few places on Isla Mujeres that serves this classic regional favorite of generations of Yucatan beer drinkers. I also start off with a Sopa de Lima, which has a wonderful light chicken broth with just the right amount of fresh-squeezed lime juice in it. Another classic Yucatan dish!
What comes next depends on my mood. Sometimes I go for a whole fish fried in garlic. Other times I can't help but splurge on the lobster tails, even though they're sometimes on the small side and tend towards the overcooked. I also like the chicken tacos here, though seafood is unquestionably the house specialty.
Best of all, nothing is expensive. You can eat well here for under $10. Beers run about $2, except during happy hour (I think local ordinances require every business in town to have two-for-one happy hours each and every day--it's a good law).
