The day we stopped in, the place was nearly empty, just a few diners, so it was very quiet. The food we tried (burgers/sandwiches) were flavorful and well presented. The food choices were pretty typical of the american chain restaurants in the caribbean. It was nice and clean and the staff was very friendly. The restaurant is right on the... More

Easy to find, right on the main drag (Rafael Melgar Ave.) .If your hungery or a big eater, this is the place for you .They serve huge portions of food and drinks . We ordered nacho's and margaritas. The single order of nacho's came on a platter piled 12 inches high and had about 1 1/2 pounds of cheese on... More

One in my party has celiac and cannot eat gluten. We wanted the crab dip but unfortunately it had flour in the mix. Also their cheese sauce has wheat flour. The kitchen staff changed fry oil so as not to cross contaminate with previously fried food. That was so considerate, we have never had such thoughtful consideration. The food was... More

My family and I went there after a day of shopping in Cozumel - kids swam in Aqua Park off the dock and snorkeled while we ate and had drinks. Lovely time - highly recommend it.

The place was very quiet when I arrived for an evening meal. Good music, good views, excellent layout and ambiance. I ordered the surf and turf - fillet mignon that was certainly not at its freshest., a tiny baked potatoe (I ordered chips!!) and adequate lobster. Service good. So come for the ambiance, drink and party mood but be weary... More

My family and I went there because on the guide we received from the cruise said it served conch there. No conch is on the menu which was a HUGE disappointment. The place is a little dated and could use a little updating. They sat us under an AC vent that kept leaking water onto the table and sometimes in... More

I only knew to go to M'ville because I'm a fan -but the cruise's do NOT publicize it. In fact, we saw cruise crew members enjoying the place -which means its their secret to get away from ship tourists. Not only is the food reliable and good, the building backs-up to the sea with free floats, trampolines, etc in the... More

Being a frequent traveler to Cozumel, this is a frequent stop for us. Love the Volcano Nachos and Havanas and bananas!

The food here was actually pretty good. The view of the ocean is probably the reason for the high prices. Our meal for 4 people was $120 and we didn't have any alcohol. The place is definitely showing its age and needs some refurbishment. We will visit a different restaurant during our next trip to Cozumel.
