My wife and I have been visiting Cozumel for 10 yrs now and we always come here to eat and I cannot explain in words how good this place is! Great service, cheap food & beer and you support the locals. I can't wait to go back in March.

Thank goodness for trip advisor and yelp. Without these reviews, we would never have found this amazing place to eat. The guacamole is to die for, and the food is amazing. Make sure to leave room for the key lime pie!!!

If your looking for food off the beaten path of the touristy cruise ship row and $100 meals don't be afraid of walking a few blocks to this place. Open air style with plastic tables and chairs. Good selections of tacos, burritos, and other good eats. Had the fresh made guacamole, tacos al pastor, and veg. burrito. All were tasty.... More

Delicious authentic Mexican food! Our first time in Cozumel and we had to eat here 2 out of the 5 days we were in town. The pozole, tacos and burritos were all very tasty and super cheap. A must try!

Agree with all the great comments here. Posole and the chuleta tacos are the best. If they had fresh pico de gallo, it would be perfect.

Los Otates, is one of the best places to eat in Cozumel. cost effective, quality food and a great atmosphere, it's a great place to go after a day's diving. The Pastor Quesadillas are to die for! highly recommend to all who visit Cozumel
