Lucky Find!

We literally stumbled onto this out of the way restaurant while walking home for a day's shopping. An absolute must while in Cozumel!

My son and I ate there and got the 3 roll box to share. The bread didn't seem fresh and most of the meat sits on top of the bread to give the illusion there's more meat than there is. If you're craving a lobster roll, then give them a try, but there is so much good food in Cozumel... More

This is a fantastic little gem of a restaurant in San Miguel! We spent the day in Cozumel and unfortunately, there were 7 cruise ships that day so we went further into the town to escape the cruise crowds for lunch. We came upon a bright red lobster shack and of course my boys were dying to have some lobster... More

Even though it's a little off the beaten path, the lobster tacos made it worthwhile for me. The beer is cold but all they had was Corona. I would return for the lobster tacos and cold beer.

The lobster tacos are very good, and my daughter had the chicken fajitas. The food is good, but the prices are a little high.

We stopped by La Lobsteria last week for lunch and we are so glad we did! We had the lobster tacos & shrimp tacos as well as the Cozumel shrimp (bacon wrapped shrimp). Reasonable prices $10-15 usd for 3 tacos plus chips & excellent salsa/pico. Our only regret is that we didn't order the lobster tail. The owner showed us... More

My husband and I decided to stop by after reading so many positive reviews here on trip advisor. We were not disappointed! We arrived around 630. The restaurant was not difficult to find at all and is away from the main strip usually littered with cruise goers. Omar was our host and was beyond accommodating. We asked him what the... More

We were so excited to visit this restaurant after reading the awesome reviews on TripAdvisor. What a horrible shock to have such a terrible meal! We arrived on a Monday night and our first clue should have been that there were no other diners in the place. The entrees were extremely expensive, so we opted for the Lobster Pasta, thinking...

We went on the recommendation of a friend who lives on the island. He described it as the best place on Cozumel to get lobster, and I can now see why. Food and service were excellent; quaint atmosphere and very reasonable prices.
