Wonderful ceviche

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

Some of the freshest and best fish on the island. Off the beaten path. Don't come here if you want white tablecloths and fancy surroundings. If you are looking for really good fresh fish and a relaxed atmosphere this is the place for you. Fantastic.

This place is a bit off the beaten path (I literally have taken a map of the town, and penciled in my favorite restaurants). Almost fresh-from-the-ocean fish. Order a whole fish, and you get to pick it out!!! This place is a great value, the food is beyond spectacular, and this is our hands-down favorite lunch place in Cozumel.

We made our trek to this little off the beat place to get our fix on fresh seafood and fish. Service was average. Food and beer were great. My daughter ordered octopus had said it was the best she ever had.

Once again, our favorite lunch spot. Fresh fish, great flavors and friendly staff. Worth the trek into the residential area to get authentic food and get away from the crowded tourist traps.

This is a great local spot, great prices, and the best fried fish and grilled shrimp you will find anywhere.
