Popped by to view the Frida Khalo exhibit, with no intention of eating at the restaurant. I thought it would be like all other restaurants along the waterfront - overpriced! But after looking in and checking out the menu I was more than pleasantly surprised. The meal prices were more than reasonable, and when our food came out it was... More

The Baby and I actually ate here for dinner twice. So if we return to a place during a trip, we really like it. The first night we ordered the veracruzean grouper, which was delicious and enjoyed a couple of 2-for-1 margaritas. We were treated to a fabulous ocean sunset from a street-side balcony table. You're up above the street... More

Half-time resident friends took us here for breakfast. Great view. Very friendly staff. I don't expect or want fast service when vacationing in Mexico, but the kitchen was slow! The sauces on my divorced eggs were excellent, but there were not tacos under the eggs. Plate included small portion of beans with two chips sticking up in them. My wife's... More

This a wonderful place to eat. Upstairs of the museum. Lots if seating with an excellent view of the ocean along with a breeze. Ordered shrimp tacos and fried fish balls which were tasty. Everything very clean and was excellent.

We were surprised by the size of the breakfast menu-- over 30 items ranging from the expected (huevos rancheros, omelets, etc) to many specialties. The food was freshly prepared, the juice was fresh-squeezed, and the coffee refills were ample. Plus, you have a great view of the sea from the second floor of the museum. A great way to start...

With an abundance of great restaurants in Cozumel I would not recommend wasting time or money eating here. The food is not very good and the drinks are over-priced - even at the 2 for 1 happy hour.

Primarily, the restaurant is a seafood restaurant. Buy, there is also an impressive variety of meat dishes on the menu as well. We lunched here after a snorkeling tour and were very pleased with the service and quality of the food we were served. Very convenient to the main ferry terminal and shopping we stopped here after touring the museum... More

Only saw this place as walking by the beach - it is above the museum and difficult to establish as a restaurant. Great service , lovely food and fantastic view. Would I go back ? Definitely- probably tomorrow
