While shopping in the great Los Cinco Soles stop into Pancho's for a rest and have one of their flavored Margarita's which are huge and very tasty. The melted chees appatizers were great as are their enchiladas.

I must admit that the service was very efficient and the staff overly friendly. However, I found the food to be on the bland side. I ordered some habanero sauce to add to my meal for an extra kick and it was still pretty mild. Totally a touristy place...so it wasn't bad. However, there really wasn't much to get excited... More

All of the Cruises out from Galveston and Pasadena Texas, are always stopped over Cozumel, Mexico. We love to visit different places in Caribbean, that's why we had to end up to see Cozumel Ports in many times... Our stop recently, last week(April 7th,2014) with Caribbean Princess, we decided not to go any far. At lunch time, after we shopped,... More

We wanted to go somewhere outside of the typical Senor Frogs and Carlos and Charlies. I read about this place on Tripadvisor and also saw that it would be walking distance from the pier. You half to walk through a really excellent gift shop to get to the restaurant. We were a party of 4 adults and 4 kids. Lunch... More

We stopped off in Cozumel on our honeymoon cruise with Royal Caribbean. When I ordered a margarita...I had no idea what I was in for. The margarita was huge! It was very good and about two or three sips in I could feel it already. I am not sure what it is called, but the melted cheese appetizer was the... More

Pancho's Backyard is a great place to shop and an even better place to have lunch or dinner. The food is excellent, the atmosphere enjoyable, the margarita's to die for and the shopping earns you "money" towards your next visit.

Pancho's Backyard is located in the Sol Cinco's Shops on the main street along the waterfront a number of blocks north of the central plaza. Ask to sit in the patio dining area in the rear of the restaurant. The margaritas are good and strong. The chicken tortilla and black bean soups are very tasty. The guacamole dip is excellent....

We were on a cruise and got back from a land tour. We wanted to get something other than Carnival blah, so we stopped for lunch. Great meal, great desert. Friendly waiter. And the open-air atmosphere made it all a great experience.

My favorite restaurant in Cozumel is Pancho's Backyard. The food is delicious! The guacamole is the best! Their fish was also excellent. The staff was very friendly. The atmosphere was very relaxing with a Mexican band playing and a waterfall on a terrace. If you go to their website, print out the coupon for a free margarita-very good!! If on... More
