Good stuff!

Had a work retreat cruise and the port was Cozumel. After walking from the international pier we stopped at 'frogs' for a drink but didn't want to eat there. We wanted authentic Mexican food.

I have dined here a few times before because I love authentic Mexican food. I noticed this time Plaza Leza had a Trip Advisor sticker. I don't know whether there is a new owner, new chef or new manager but our meal was just terrible. The pre-meal chips were burned. The service was very slow and it took a long... More

We love this place--every time we come to Cozumel, we make it a point to sit on the main square and enjoy margaritas and watch the people go by. The staff is friendly and never in a hurry to turn over tables so it's a great place to relax. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Try it!!

I have been coming here for many years and it's always a pleasure. People will tell u to avoid restaurants in the plaza but this one has been here for years and is not a tourist-gauging dump. Sitting outside is a fun people-watching spot as it is the middle of the plaza. Mariachis will stop at ur table to play... More

This little local restaurant is located just on the south side of the Clock Tower Square in downtown Cozumel. It very much has the local feel, the servers were friendly, and the prices quite reasonable. My husband & I ordered the chicken fajita which was served in a steaming pan with the sides of fresh salsa, quacamole, & sour cream.... More

Quick to wave you in, slow to take the order and exceptionally slow to serve the very poor quality food. To top of the miserable experience, the waiter, when bringing the change, stood over us and demanded a tip! Appalling and to be avoided.

I've been going there since the mid 80s and it is under new ownership. Food is very good and the staff is friendly. A great place to watch people and view the new town square.

The new owners have mad some changes to the inside of the bar/restaurant. However the prices for their drinks have gone sky high. Two for the price of one Margaritas $9.00 USD. The Corona beer is now served using the mini bottles rather that the regular size bottles, but the price has gone up! Not the same as when the... More

Located on the square, this restaurant have great atmosphere , good food, and is significantly cheaper than others nearby. Plan to pay in cash and ask the cost of the drinks before ordering. Here as elsewhere the 2 for 1 drinks are a come on.

We had heard great stuff about the Plaza Leza through family who knew the owner. Great spot to get out of the sun and enjoy a meal on the main plaza in San Miguel. We did a family style meal for 8 and got two big platters. One platter was grilled chicken, pork and steak...some of the most amazing grilled... More
