My wife and I, with guests, have eaten here twice in the last three and a half weeks. The first night, things were quite good with no complaints. The second time we ate there, all four of our dishes came lukewarm. While the food was tasty, it truly is unforgivable to bring meals in that state. I am not quite... More

I've been to the smaller location to the south a couple times now. Had the mushroom burger and the bbq burger, both were great. The paddy is huge, probably about 3/4 lb. Easily enough for 2, but I devoured mine entirely! This is not just one of the best burgers I've had in Mexico, but one of the best I've... More

Stay away from this restaurant. Over priced. Tasteless food. Long wait time for food. Most expensive and worst meal we had in Cozumel.

This is a great steak and seafood restaurant near the downtown core. They have both US and local beef, fresh seafood, pasta, etc. The service is excellent and the food is superb. The price is very reasonable for the quality of the food. This is a most go to place in Cozumel.

We try to hit this little bistro on the first night in town. It is a really, really good wood fire grill. Everything (including the baked potatoes, tortillas, and bread) is cooked on the open grill. Steaks, veggies, chimichurri, guac, is all REALLY GOOD.

The lobster was awesome, and I never thought a baked potato could be anything special, but with the "crema" (sour cream) they use, it was off the charts. We just ran into this place on the street (isn't that when you find the best ones?), and we decided to try it. So glad we did, will definitely be coming back.

We heard good reviews and felt like spoiling ourselves with a nice meal. I ordered the rib eye and my wife ordered the salmon steak. It took a long while to get our food because they started doing delivery orders in between. When the food finally arrived it was dry and cold. We complained and they put the meat back... More
