Open from 7 PM till 1 AM. TA has the closing time incorrect. Best Pastor we had on the island, as others have stated. Make the walk away from town and then stop for paletas on your way back. You will most likely be the only tourist in the joint. The place is hopping all night with locals dining in... More

Inexpensive, clean, and delicious, this favorite Taco spot is a hit with locals and tourists. Open in the evening.

The tacos are awesome along with the other food. I never trust a Cozumel restaurant that has any English on the menu - it's probably overpriced and not so good. This gem is located about 4 blocks east of the Plaza and is worth the walk.

El Pastor were our favorite, but we tried many different ones, and all of them were great. They do beef, pork, chicken and many varieties. The last day my BF discovered the torta of pastor pork and he still... More

Stayed on Cozumel for a week and tried several restaurants. We liked El Pique so much we ate there 3 times. Fijoles soup and pork chop tacos are great. Our waiter Francisco was very helpful. I'll for sure go back next time we are in Cozumel.

The taco's are worth the few blocks walk from the main drag in town. That, plus the fact I had 4 taco's and a beer for $4 and change. You gotta love it!

We sampled a variety of tacos here but the al pastor is absolutely perfection. Combined with an horchata and an adventurous appetite, you'll be very glad you visited El Pique. The manager and staff were all incredibly nice and generous as well and it was by far the most inexpensive meal we had in Cozumel. We had many delightful meals... More

This is the real deal! Two different people that have lived there their whole lives recommended this awesome Taco stand. The tacos and salsa were awesome! We were the only gringos there which was cool with me. Friendly service (english speaking) and very reasonable prices! Can't wait to go back. We enjoyed it so much, we took a dozen back... More
