We love going to La Perlita when in Cozumel. This time I had their catch of the day - red snapper! Yummy Others in the group had lion fish, lobster, grouper... all great!

This is a small restaurant located outside the touristic area of town. Food is amazing, fresh and with good flavour. Mondays are "lobster day", so lobster is 2x1. Not fancy, just relaxed environment. Personnel is attentive and smiling.

Picked this place with high expectations only to find dry and bland grilled fish and horrible sides. There was nothing great about this place. There are so many great places to eat on the island. Don’t waste a meal here.

Charming place frequented by tourists "in the know" and locals. Coconut fish is excellent -- lion fish is great if they have it. Ceviche is wonderful - watch the hot green sauce . It's some of the hottest we ever had. Bring cash. Make it...More
