This is my favorite place to eat on the East side. We were recently in Cozumel for a day on a cruise, and I took a group of 17 people here for lunch. Everyone loved their food and drinks. Plates were so large most were not able to finish their food. Drinks are good and strong. Crazy shots of tequila afterwards. If you’ve been there you know what I mean! Prices are still very reasonable for on the beach. I just hope the building stays standing at least a few more years. We been going here for a long time, back when it really was a pretty little beach in front of the building.

Been here in the past. Food was very good. I ordered the whole fish with garlic and butter and wife had chicken tacos and couple of drinks. Service was good, very attentive. Reason I gave it a poor rating is because we were seated next to a roped off area that had a big hole in the concrete floor. Also the thatched roof support poles were leaning towards the ocean and could fall on us at anytime. Not sure if is safe there or will still be standing after the next hurricane.

Had lunch and drinks here on a trip to the East side. The place has a really funky feel to it and it was fantastic. Great food, cold drinks and the view is amazing. Ask them to show you the extra large margarita glass. It's hilarious. We were a group of six and everybody liked their food, which is incredible in itself. Definitely a stop I will make on future trips.

We went to Playa Bonita while our kids surfed. To be honest, the place looks rough. It took a beating from hurricane Wilma and now is not much more than a shack on a hillside overlooking a bay. There is literally nothing else around so we gave it a shot. Glad we did! The guac and nachos were great. The drinks are CRAZY big and were tasty. The waiters were great but be forewarned, the humor is def PG-13 at a MINIMUM. But if you have a sense of humor and a sense of adventure you will enjoy Playa Bonita.

Leo from Tours Plaza bought us here for lunch. So glad he did. The food was amazing and the servings were extremely large. With drinks and food for 3 it was just over $30. Guacamole there is a must. Also chicken enchiladas was one of the best I’ve ever tasted.
