We have been coming to Cozumel for over 10 years and visit Casa Denis every time. The food is good, service is good, prices are reasonable. They treat you very well. They do try to pull you in by offering a free drink - the free drink is small and has very little booze, but the ones you pay for... More

We arrived in Cozumel on a cruise ship and took a cab downtown, directly to Casa Denis for lunch. We wanted to experience real Yucatan family food and we were not disappointed. Ancheladas, cerviche, pollo pilbil, local beer and margarita... We were not disappointed. The food was plentiful, excellent and without pretension, the service was courteous and not pushy and...

This place is in a good location, right off the square, but now there is construction all around it while they remodel the Zocalo (boo hoo - I loved that old town square) and I've always wanted to try it. We tried the specialty - Pollo Pibil - Yucatanean chicken in banana leaves - my husband said it was good,... More

We went for their famous red snapper. I don't know what kind of fish they used, but definitely not a red snapper. Had to use a knife to cut the fish. It was rubbery and bland. We complained and it didn't do any good. They are just after your money, so don't waste your time.

Casa Denis is located on south side of the town square San Miguel an easy stroll from the Playa del Carmen ferry docks. It’s worth white skirting the construction in square in early 2015. Casa Denis is must stop during our annual dive trips with Aldora Divers at Cozumel. Operating from the old family home of Denis Angulo. Sit outside... More

I have eaten at this restaurant 3 times in the past and always have had a good time and a good meal. However, at the time of our last visit the street in front of the restaurant is under heavy construction with the burying of the utilities underground. We had to hop across a trench to get into the restaurant.... More

We had a great dinner here at Casa Denis early into outer vacation. Quaint little restaurant with great food and service. If you mention that you read about them on the Internet you will receive a free margarita. My husband, son and I all had the snapper special. It can be prepared 3 different ways. My son and I each...
