We ate at this restaurant twice while we were in Cozumel, both times for breakfast. The food was very good & the prices are reasonable. The menu offered authentic Mexican food as well as some Canadain/ American fare.The service was good as well.

We have been going to Cozumel each year for the last ten or more years and we always stop off at the Rock 'n Java, on the water just South of the downtown cruise pier terminal.

This place was right next door to our apartment in Cozumel, so we couldn't miss it or help but give it a try. I ordered a hamburger with cheese, bacon and mushrooms. I also ordered a margarita which is served in a gigantic glass. You get your money's worth at Rock 'n Java. They even have baked good you can... More

Watch the navy ship moored out in front of the restaurant. Prices are good, 90 pesos for our meal, it included 2 eggs, bacon, hash browns, French toast... More

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!!
