Rolandi¹s Restaurant Bar & Pizzeria As you enter the restaurant you can sense the romantic, old world aromas emanating from the kitchen and the wood fired oven. The inside dining room is air conditioned, and then the view expands from the waterfront terrace to the beautiful Caribbean. A relaxing view from the covered terrace offers gorgeous sunsets and dive boats gently crossing the seascape. The terrace bar is a great place to meet people day or night. Serving your favorite cocktail and premium liquors with an incredible view and relaxing ambiance. An extensive Italian menu, inspired with a passion for taste, includes local seafood, veal, pasta and of course, wood fired pizza. All the seafood is prepared fresh with fresh herbs and high quality olive oil. Always ask for the catch of the day and pairing it with the right wine is easy. The wine selection is excellent and reasonably priced. The menu makes you want to come back for more. Rolandi¹s looks and feels very upscale but the prices say otherwise. The food is amazing. The location is ideal with a fantastic view and a friendly staff. This is a beautiful spot to celebrate life and eat with a loved one.

Good ole' Rolandis... a favorite of ours...

It's little more expensive than most restaurants but we just love the food (and being ocean front, a great view). We like the spaghetti, pizza and Gitano de filet de res. They serve a nice puffy bread with olive oil that's a nice treat).

Thank you so much for taking the time out to write such a great review! The secret to our housemade bread is the wood-fueled oven. Since it fires at such a high temperature - it insures crispy bread every single time! Please come and visit us again very soon! More

A variety of wonderful food from a place that's served the island for MANY years. One of the few restaurants that stayed open with Hurricane Mitch bearing down on us. Forever grateful. Romantic courtyard! Two locations, now I believe.

We had mahi mahi and pizza. All was pretty good. The flavor of the mahi was good. I thought it was a little bit overcooked but still tasted fine. My daughter was disappointed when she ordered angel hair pasta and was given fettuccini. The bright yellow vinyl chairs ruined the ambience somewhat.

We stumbled across this place by accident walking around in cozumel. Its a bit on the pricier side but has great ocean views and fantastic italian menu. We enjoyed the antipasti plate and cerviche and a pasta, and all were delicious. Also had a half bottle of wine, and italian pinot which was probably one of the best I've had.... More

We ate here our second night on the island and loved it! We got a few appetizers as the sun set and then watched the pirate ships sail by as we ate our dinner. The food was great, however one member of our party ordered the special of the day and the fish was almost raw when they brought it... More

We were in Cozumel for Vacation with another couple and walked up to this Restaurant. It was hot we were tired and hungry. It smelled delicious and the a/c was working. The food was excellent. It was so good that we came back a second time a few nights later.

We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday here while visiting Cozumel. The service was wonderful, the view perfect, and the food top notch. I definitely recommend checking out Rolandi's. Jorge was our waiter and was wonderful!

Great seaside restaurant. Atmosphere is awesome and the food is great. Most in our party ordered individual pizzas. They have an amazing flat bread that they serve with olive oil and balsamic. Service is great and the price is good for the food.

Nice restaurant with indoor or outdoor seating. We sat outside beside the ocean. The filet mignon was wonderful. Husband said lobster tail was good but small. The baked potatoes were good, too. Great service!

Food was very nice. Atmosphere was superb except for nearby smokers - not the fault of the restaurant. A bit pricey but overall a memorably pleasant experience.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of Rolandi's Cozumel. Please accept our apologies for the smokers - we try and keep them n secluded areas of the terrace. If that ever happens again, we'd be happy to relocate your table, even to our inside area - with AC - where smoking is strictly prohibited.... More
