At our last visit to Cozumel we stumbled across Panchos Backyard. Everything was excellent. The margaritas, chips and salsa, and chicken mole (best ever, a must have). The staff was very friendly, the restaurant was very clean romantic and a relaxing authentic meal at a good price.

With the best margaritas and guacamole on the island this place has been a stop everytime we have visted Cozumel. The restaurant is rather easy to find along the north end of Av. Rafael E. Meglar. The atmosphere is very relaxing. The restaurant is open to a courtyard with beautiful plants and fountains. The food is very good and the... More

My husband and I came here in May of 2011, I didn't eat much so I can't say I remember the food then. On our last visit to Cozumel we decided to go into town and eat at Pancho's. The staff was friendly and great. The food...not so much at all. We recieved gauc and chips and cheese quesadillas which... More

Pancho's is a must-do in our family....my husband made his 6th visit on this vacation! Margaritas are out of this world, and every menu item we've tried has been terrific. We especially enjoyed the man and woman providing music during our lunch...they sing and play instruments, and were sweet enough to pose for photos with us. Worth taking a taxi... More

Nice location and ambience. Rincindo was an excellent waiter. Our drinks were without alcohol and refreshing! The Nachos con Pollo were delicious and the burritos. Quite tasty for Mexican American. I would go again!

- Ambiance Pancho's has one of the nicest interiors of the restaurants on the Island. Comfortable, meticulously clean, attractive furniture with good spacing, great tile floors, creative lighting. Noise level is usually very good also, unless a rambunctious group of divers or cruisers is at a big table. One thing to note, the 'backyard' part means it is open at... More

This was a charming place at the port of Cozumel. Nice decor and inviting spirit to welcome the cruise ship herd. The staff were very friendly and some spoke English. The prices were not cheap, but certainly not a rip-off. The quality was slightly above normal. The real show stopper was the fish tacos!!!!! Any seafood in or about the... More

We always look forward to lunch at Pancho's Backyard! Such a beautiful place with wonderful food, drinks and entertainment. Also surrounded by the best shopping on the island. Always worth the trip into town!
