When I lived in Cozumel, Casa Denis was by reservation for groups only. I enjoyed going alone and watching people from my table in front. I especially liked the cochinita pibil which is pork from a pig wrapped in banana leaves and baked in a pit. So tender. They also have poc chuc. The crown of the... read more

This place was listed in our VRBO condo as a great local spot for breakfast. Completely WRONG! Ordered huevos rancheros over easy for me, and biscuits end eggs w/bacon for my wife. Two burned up eggs on dry corn tortillas with refried beans on the side showed up for me and burned up eggs and ham on dry hamburger buns... More

We loved everything about the food and the service. But when we asked for air conditioning they put us next to the door of the adjoining business that did have it so that the fans blew on us haha. That was such a good laugh that we quit worrying about not having it.

Love this place in many respects. The waiters are great, the location is fun, particularly on Sunday evenings, and the food is always authentic. It's not the best meal in cozumel, but it's a tradition and is usually lively.

Go see Martine and he will make you full and perhaps intoxicated. A new item on the menu is called Sexy Shrimp. They were indeed sexy looking and tasting. One of my favorites.

We stayed on the island for ten nights... And ate in quite a few places around town. Casa Denis was ok. The food was alright, but not the best we had. The empanadas were incredible, so if you're looking for those, this is the place to go. The margaritas were great and the service was friendly and attentive. The thing... More

Great margaritas, shrimp ceviche, and fresh fish on the square. The waiters are great entertainers as always. Great place to people-watch.

The staff are friendly and entertaining and the fresh catch of the day was delicious. We enjoy dining at this long time family restaurant as we can enjoy a great meal and people watch. Margaritas were huge but just right. Great evening.
