We liked the food here, and we enjoyed that it was off the beaten path. Make sure you pay in pesos, because their conversion rates will kill ya.

This place puts out good and simple mexican food. The prices are fair and they also have a full bar. They have moved down the street a little ways but just look for the big yellow lightbulb.

We starting going to El Foco back in 1987 thru 1990. This was our first trip back since 1990. The food was still great and it was nice to see some old friends still there.

We have been visiting Cozumel for 20 years, so how we misses this place I do not know. Great food and wonderful staff. 9 went in, 9 came out full and Happy. I agree with other reviews, do not miss this one!

Simple, tasty Mexican food, Friendly, quick service. Reasonable prices. Loved it. Particularly the El Foco special and a big glass of Horchata. Went there 3 times in a four day stay in Cozumel. (NOTE: When I was there they had moved a couple of blocks away from the location listed in the lonely planet which is easy to miss.)

The location for this place has moved down the street, so when you see the original building, keep walking down Calle 5 and you won't miss it. Their tacos are out of this world delicious! I had the Luciano. It's grilled beef, cheese, pablano pepper, and onions. Not spicy just delicious! Wish they were in my hometown. And yes they're... More

The food was awesome but the margaritas were $12 each. Prices were not posted and we learned an expensive lesson!
