The food, wow, the best we had in Cozumel all week. Go for the Mayan pork dish, delicious! And expect a complimentary round of tequila shots, we enjoyed that treat on both our visits (we just had to go back for a 2nd time at be end of our week).

Balthazar is a great waiter. Being off the square makes it a little less noisy. The food is very good and reasonably priced.

After eating in so many restaurants in Cozumel, Casa Denis never disappoints. Whenever in Cozumel, we eat there at least twice in a week. The waiters are great, very friendly and attentive. I love the skirt steak and Mexican platter and my husband usually orders fish. Everything is always well prepared and hot. Don't miss this gem.

....no annotation of being "best dish I've had in Cozumel" or anything demoting it in any way. Just Period. Unfortunately it was my wife's dish....it was a Grilled Squid Filet in Garlic and Guajilla chiles. Cooked perfectly tender and incredibly tasty. Fortunately she was nice enough to share it. I had the Mayan pork which was also very good just... More

So, 3rd and last night in town after we had eaten at TA #1 and TA #2 for the 2 previous dinners. We were walking around the Plaza across from the passenger ferry pier and the giant Mexican flag (our favorite part of town). A lot of these places have "barkers" who try to convince you to eat at their... More

Cozumel is one of my favorite destinations and I have visited many times. My favorite place to eat is Casa Denis, it is where the locals eat. There food is excellent as is their Margaritas. Prices are extremely reasonable and the atmosphere is more local and not your typical tourist trap.

Our little group stopped at Casa Denis and I have always heard how great they were and I was not lied to. Husband and I both wanted to eat their for our anniversary and the food and service were great, super friendly and fun staff. For sure will be a stop we make every year.

The reviews are not to par with the actual experience of this restaurant, we are a family of 4 and went for dinner, they took a lot of time to take our order, the food is pricy and not so good, they messed up with the order and gave my wife enchiladas instead of chimichanga, she decided to keep it,...

Martin (Mahrteen) is the best and so is the restaurant. Had three evening meals there over the course of a week and all were wonderful. The Pescadoro with garlic is to die for.
