Really fantastic food and service!

My husband wanted to have local lobster while on the island. Although I'm not terribly enthusiastic about seafood, I went along for the experience. I am so glad we ate here! I ordered coconut shrimp and it was the best coconut shrimp I have ever had! My husband liked his lobster. The salsa is... read more

I love this place, we are stuffed red fish, and the sangria was wonderful. I was a little disappointed, we got the bill but it was not itemized, just a total, I had no idea the price and when I asked for it broken down they just looked at us. I wanted to pay in pesos.

On a friend's recommendation, we made our way to La Lobsteria. While we had the restaurant to ourselves, we had a fantastic meal and enjoyed the evening on the front porch.

La Lobsteria was recommended to us by a friend. It was a great recommendation! Omar, the owner, was so personable. The food was delicious and reasonably-priced. The same meal at home would have cost me 4 times as much. We basically had a seafood platter of lobster, grouper, shrimp, squid, and king crab. Yum! The pico de gallo was home-made... More

Great meal. What more can I say- I would recommend this little place for a great lobster dinner. Good conversation with the proprietor and the cook.

We ate here several times on our trip. The service was great, and we had the best flan for dessert I have ever eaten!

We ended up at la lobsteria after not being able to get a table at kondesa. I'm glad we couldn't get that table. I ordered a margarita and it was wine of the best drinks I have had in years. Fresh lime juice and don ramone tequila made it an amazing drink. Omar the owner then brought the table some... More

I have eaten here on each of my last trips to Cozumel. The atmosphere is pleasant, open air, surrounded by local vegetation, with agreeable Mexican music played softly in the background. The rock lobster, chosen by weight and shown before cooking, was cooked appropriately with a light oil and garlic sauce. It was served with both butter and garlic dips.... More

Omar, the owner, treated our party of six like royalty. Food was delicious. Lobster fresh and best shrimp tacos.
