We sat by the windows, which is open to the sidewalk so you did get a couple of people trying to sell you things but this has never bothered us. Just an FYI in case it bothers you. We... More

Staff is very friendly and attentive. Food was nothing spectacular so a bit pricey for what your getting. It's right across from the ferry pier so geared towards the tourist coming in. You can get as good food for less, or better food for same money if you can go further away from central town.

Nice setting, breezy and pretty. Way more pleasant than the usual tourist traps - Senor Frogs, etc. This little place is worth a visit.

We were seated immediately and chips and salsa were served promptly. Drinks were ordered- Pina Colada for me and Bahama Mama for hubby- they were served pronto- and no sooner... More

We were nothing less than impressed with the overall experience at this restaurant. Margaritas are a must have. food is excellent and portions are large. If you are not a big eater try and share. The bathrooms are so clean and the location right by the boat docks makes for fabulous people watching. Service is classy, waiters well manicured and... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant on Cozumel. Not anymore. The location is great but the quality of the food is terrible. Friends have said it got bad and I had to see for myself. The food came out fast like microwave fast. The tacos were like cardboard. The coffee was warm not hot. The juice had a water... More
