Love this place! Seafood is spectacular, especially the octopus! Staff is friendly and welcoming! A little off the beaten path, but well worth the effort to take a cab or was the extra blocks for the experience. Great value for a great meal!

Fantastic omelette for me and scrambled eggs and vegetables for my wife. 10 bucks! Food was very good and they have great service. Get away from the waterfront and visit authentic Cozumel!

We loved this restaurant. The service is excellent and the food delicious! We had the red snapper in coconut batter with mango sauce. It was fresh and amazing. Great margaritas too. Lots of charm as well. Loved it

Mark, Sorry, I don't know if the restaurant is dog friendly. But my guess is they might be. As you know, dogs are everywhere in San Miguel! Since you are local, give them a call. (987) 869-8343
