My boyfriend ordered the coconut crusted lion fish and that was amazing as well! We can't wait to eat here again next... read 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.

Make sure you eat the shark empanadas and the lion fish. Filet kasin. Coconut lion fish!!!!! Mixed ceviche and their key lime pie are a must!

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

Fun times with new friends in Cozumel - located at the back of town - past the Conch roundabout - you will not find this place by walking along the beachfront! This is where the locals eat, in fact it was full of locals but we were made very welcome. The lion fish ceviche is awesome and the fish soup... More

Good food. Everything tasted so fresh. Not too expensive . Lots of locals suggested this place to me. Kind of far but every taxi driver knows where it's at

We went to La Perlita for dinner. It is in the middle of town and you need to take a cab or you will never find it. We had recommendations from people that live in Cozumel. The food was excellent and the service was great. We ordered a platter of seafood including lobster, octopus, fish, shrimp and squid. The price... More
