A lot of locals eat year, so it has a very authentic feel to it. Fresh seafood, reasonable prices, some live music... what else can you ask?

Ok this place is off the beaten path but well worth it. When you arrive they will bring out a just made plate of cheviche, fresh caught fish my favorite if the Cameron empanizado or bread shrimp. the best limeade on the Island get it with mineral water.

Awesome fresh seafood with great cold beverages and wine and fantastic prices! You must stop here and have a meal while in Cozumel! You will definitely go back! :) P.S. We were visiting friends during March Break 2014!

This is a TA win! When you walk in, they bring a small fish ceviche - which is AMAZING! We ordered a large combo ceviche next, which was good as well, but the fish was the best! We also got a bone in fried fish, and it was delicious. On recommendation of the waiter, we got a garlic sautéed fish,... More

This is a local fish restaurant. There is a place to eat in and also take out. The fish is fresh that day and is awesome.

If you want authentic food that the locals like and not some boring tourist restaurant filled with American tourists who won't try anything new, this is your place. Gotta have ceviche. Don't be scared. You just gotta try it. Be brave and put a teensy bit of habanero salsa on your fork and try it with your fish. We love... More

OK, there is a take out bar out front on the sidewalk but around back there is an enclosed courtyard of tables and even a stage. The fish is what you should come for, especially the plate of fish done in Mexicana style. It is a bountiful serving of freshness that will leave you satisfied and happy that you have... More

Loved this restuarant. We ended up taking a $5.00 cab ride to find it as it is off the beaten path, but we walked back to the Main Street. Food, price, authentic atmosphere were great. We split a grouper fillet,had a couple beers and with a tip was around $10.00 canadian. Owner a character. Would highly recommend. Really satisfied with... More
