This restaurant has been serving great food for many years. The fish and steaks are cooked to perfection. You really need to stop here when in Cozumel.

This is a nice restaurant downtown. the food is good and the prices are not too high. Sometimes there is even live entertainment. It has a nice decorative island feel about the place. The staff was friendly and efficient.

Party of 9 was looking forward to a wonderful meal and most of us left scratching our heads on why this restaurant has such high reviews? I found the portions to be adequate, service to be prompt, meals were warm-ish, over-priced and atmosphere was boring.

Great meal! Small, clean and fantastic service! Feel like you are in your own private courtyard. Dined on lobster each of the 2 visits we made to the restaurant.

The restaurant has a sea food dish that comes with fish, lobster, shrimp, rice and vegges for $21.00 bucks... You cant beat that price any place USA... It is a... More
