Normal tourist restaurant. Nothing special unless you've never been to one. Staff is sparse and not super attentive.

Short stroll from the pier and shops. Cold drinks and good fun. Tono was our server, and he made it happen.

We were in Cozumel for the day as passengers on the Norwegian Jewel during February vacation. We walked from Punta Langosta pier to the restaurant (not too far) and stayed just for drinks and a little shopping in the gift shop. The service was friendly and attentive and there was lots to see and do while we sat outside for... More

We ate lunch here during a stopover on a cruise. The cheese fries were good and the burger I had was nearly perfect. There were a ton of people in town that day and it was pretty festive and fun for everyone from adults to kids. Great place to look out over the water as well. We sat inside but... More

Have been here twice in two different years. I'll admit, I'm not a fan of places that cater to the cruise ships (and this place does). But, a friend wanted to go and so I obliged. Spilt a "cheeseburger in paradise) with my wife and had two beers. Got a bill for $42. Won't be returning next year, with or... More

We have been to Margaritaville twice now and both times we had a wonderful time. The staff is wonderful, they show you a great time and we love the food there. At first I was disappointed to see they had taken the fish tacos off the menu, but they had a new version in place of it that was just... More

We stopped in for a quick bite before a trip we had scheduled. The place was empty, maybe 10 tables had people at them. It took so long to get the food we ordered that after 30 minutes of waiting, we told the waiter to cancel it, paid for our overpriced beers and left. Wish we would have skipped the... More

Stopped by for a beer in late afternoon. Place was totally empty except for one couple. They say it's busy over the lunch hour so we wouldn't necessarily consider being empty a bad sign. Beer came in a cheap, flimsy, very small plastic cup --it was not even properly chilled. We questioned the waiter about how the beer was being... More

Beautiful decor as ever. They had inside and outside seating with a ladder down to the ocean to swim. They also had a floating trampoline and other floating toys in the ocean. Unfortunately it was too cold to swim when we visited but it looked like a lot of fun! Expensive to eat..it was $75 usd for tacos x2 and... More

Obviously the margaritas were great. Good location, walking distance to cruise port. Food was great, prices okay. The constantly being asked if we wanted pictures got annoying. Our waitress Lola was great, attentive, very sweet, took our picture with our camera. Didn't appreciTe being dragged in by the pirate and pushed into taking a picture with him, while he expected...
