Losing their zing?

Overall a good visit for diner, although a drink stop earlier in our trip was less than good. Cheaply made margaritas...eehh. We like the Denis...usually make a stop or two during each trip. Tonight's dinner was solid, and their margarita with dinner was mucho better than earlier. But I must... read more

We have been eating here since 1985. The tacos de Cohinita Pibil is the best! Reasonable priced with great food! A good place to people watch! Good cold beer!

This long-time Cozumel favorite never disappoints. From the excellent mango margaritas to the local fare, you can't go wrong at Casa Denis.

second time I ate at Casa Dennis, our server was so cheerful and happy. Good was great. The location is easy to find. The cooking is home style and if you was musicians to play for you they are right there! If you don't want them to play just say you have no money for a tip.

Walking down the street on the South East corner of the square, the waiters of Casa Denis will rope you in. Established in 1945 by a local family, the restaurant is still in the family. Although we were "roped" in to eating at Casa Denis, We would not have eaten here if we didn't want to. LOL. The staff was... More

We liked the food, it was okay. The water seemed kind of grouchy but overall it was a reasonable experience.

We looked up Trip Advisor's reviews of before eating in Cozumel. Thought this placed looked great for lunch. There was no one eating there the food in the serving trays looked as though it had been there for a week. We just walked straight out. Went around the corner and ate at Parilla Mission and had a wonderful meal. Obviously... More

We have eaten here for years and never been disappointed. If you look at all the empty restaurants in the area, notice the crowd at Casa Denis! There is a reason for the crowd! Great food and drinks...you can't go wrong!

Food was great but staff made it worth returning numerous times during our stay on the island. Badazar brought us in the first night and kept us coming back. He was fun, friendly and went out of his way to make sure we had an enjoyable night.... Every time. If he wasn't there he left word for the other gentlemen... More

We keep coming back! Of course for the good food and reasonable prices, but we come back for waiter Martin as well! We met him in 2007 and every time we come back, he always makes us feel like family. This last time, March 31, it was packed, but he set five of us up with a table and chairs... More
