Best fresh fish

Just as the title says, best fresh fish in cozumel. We heard from some of the locals about this place. It's too far to walk to so I would recommend a cab($6). The prices were a little high but they brought out our fish before they fileted it. I would recommend asking the waiter for the daily... read more

Thom place serves fresh delicious fish and uses organic produce from the family's farm for all dishes. Try the Pez Leon 👌🏻

The seafood was fantastic. It is out of the way, so we did take a cab there, but walked back to the boardwalk. It was a hike. Worth it. Will be back.

This is a little hole in the wall place that we would've never found on our own. Our dive master recommended it so we took a taxi there that night. BEST lobster I've ever had! My boyfriend ordered the coconut crusted lion fish and that was amazing as well! We can't wait to eat here again next time! Ps... this... More

Came here on a whim and wasn't disappointed. Lionfish, lobster and shimp were all delicious. Note: Doesn't take card like the menus have you believe.

My girls both ordered the lionfish salad, and I wish I had too. Nicely cooked lionfish with delicious greens and apples. My husband had the fish soup and seemed pleased. I ordered the seafood chile rellenos. Which were also good.

Our Dive master told us to dine here and it felt like the real deal. Very friendly staff and we saw lots of local families dining there. Although I speak a little Spanish, it was clear the staff knew enough English every one was communicating. My husband had lion fish which was the winner. I had seafood stuffed fish the... More
