Now I am not saying it is and I am not saying it isn't but when the missus came down with a bug in Cozumel I went straight to Rock 'n Java to pick her prescription - Chicken Soup. She says it is some of the best chicken soup around. Is it the miracle cure? Maybe!!

Our secret is out! It's true - our chicken soup CAN cure the common cold. Over the years, Chef Mario has really perfected the recipe! I'll be sure and pass your comments along to him! More

A regular stop for cruise line crew, Rock'n Java boasts good food at cheap-ish prices, nice drinks, free wifi and a small lending library. Good for burgers or Americanized Mexican food, a short walk from Punta Langosta and worth it, if you need a quick bite but don't feel adventurous.

We must admit that we have a very positive bias towards the RnJ because it's our favorite restaurant when we visit Cozumel. For two decades it's been our "Go To" place for a meal. They first caught our allegiance with their excellent salads (back when fresh greens were hard to come by at grocery stores on the island) but they... More

My wife and I have eaten at RJ many time over the years we have been visiting Cozumel (21years). After our most recent visit in October with 4 other friends, I decided to do a review. I always have the cheeseburger and can't say enough good things about it! The only thing I could improve on it would be the... More

It saved my stay in Cozumel! Good food, service and very accommodating to our special diets (vegetarian and very restrictive). Nicely located. Just good!!!

Thanks for taking the time out to write such a great review. Being a vegetarian myself, I really make sure that Rock'n Java always serves the freshest produce. We also don't put any animal products in our refried beans, and will work with pretty much any dietary restriction. Please come and see us again on your next Cozumel visit. More

Lisa, Ernesto and staff have outdone themselves. It's always a great meal here and the variety is extensive. In Sept they have Chiles En Nogada in honor of Mexico's independence. Always a treat. Oct is Thanksgiving and more yummy surprises! They have been around for years and are a huge part of the local community. If you want a variety... More

We eat at Rock 'n Java regularly as we live on Cozumel Island approximately 8 months of the year. Lisa, Ernesto and the staff are all friendly, kind and genuine. The menu has many selections and all is available regardless of the time of day. Food and service are exceptional. We sometimes have breakfast after yoga or a morning workout.... More

Rock-n-Java has been a staple in Cozumel for at least 20 years. It is open early so the divers can have a great breakfast before their day begins, and then it is open late. My favorite is the apple pie a la mode - it is to die for! A little pricy, but worth every mouthful!
