Great long island ice teas! My crab stuffed tortellini special was rather dry...put marinara sauce on it to give it more flavor. Steaks were good that the 2 men in our party ate. Decor was a little more casual than I thought it would be...green checkered tablecloths and blond wood high-backed chairs which gave it more of a casual diner... More

Very good Italian fare. I had excellent grouper. Others in our party has pasta and a steak. Everyone thought it excellent. Value was very good, prices have climbed slightly but are not exorbitant at about $25/person with one drink each. This is our 4th trip to Cozumel and we need to schedule more than one Prima visit per trip. The... More

The best thing about this restaurant was the view. We loved being outside and watching the sunset and checking out the town from 8 floors up. Our pasta dishes were good, the bread basket was the best, and the staff was very friendly.

We ate here twice during the Carnival week with a little less enthusiasm than in years past. Dinner was good but not as good as in past years. The breakfast was great as always, but now you need to order a cinnamon roll when in years past it was in the basket of breakfast bread. No biggie but noticed. All... More

Prima is a restaurant that is both difficult and easy to miss. It's located on the top floor of a building, with an open desk, colorful lights and great view. From street level, all you see is a concierge type person and an elevator door. After eating dinner at a different place one night, we walked by and checked out... More

We had breakfast at Prima every morning as it was included with our condo rental. It was very good. It was a very popular place for breakfast (not just for condo tenants). I ordered a cinnamon roll one morning as I was told they were the best on the island. I was not disappointed! I recommend getting one (or more... More

There's an elevator on the street that takes you to this great rooftop restaurant. Seating outside is the best or inside by the windows. I'm not an egg freak but the eggs here are unbelievably amazing. I always have the steak and eggs. Just great and the view is unbeatable for this average priced meal. We have all of our... More

Was expecting more for the price. The food was good but had heard great things so expectations were high. Well the price was high but I understand that you pay for the view. Will say the wine selection was over the top. If you are a wino this is the place for you.

I came here for dinner in March 2014. I felt that the portions were just right. I ordered the filet mignon (Very tasty and cooked the way I wanted - although it was light on the seasoning). I ordered it with the side pasta (fettuccine). The pasta was terrific -you must try the pasta (it's handmade on site). I'd say... More
