The place was off the beaten path which we really liked but the lobster bisque was not great and the lobster tails were tough and not overly enjoyable. We would give it another shake in the future. Maybe it was an off night.

Saw the reviews for this place and our mouths were watering thinking about the lobster bisque. We walked from our hotel, following the trip advisor map, which was completely wrong and ended up walking 50 min for what should have been 15. Finally, when we arrived it wasn't even La Lobsteria anymore. It had been closed and just reopened under... More

Ate dinner here tonight. To start off the service was great and the waiter was very pleasant. We went for the seafood but also received chips and pico. Very fresh vegetables in the mix. I'm not a fan of the stuff but I got to admit it was excellent. The sad part about it was this is where the good... More

We were here to celebrate my wife's open water diving certification and were not disappointed. The lobster here was phenomenal. I am not a big fan of lobster because most of the time it has no taste and has a rubbery consistency. The lobster here was tasty without any additions and it melts in your mouth. The portions are large.... More

We first visited 3 years ago and always talked about returning---FINALLY made it. Omar is the ultimate gracious host and his food is unbelievable. It was a slow Monday evening and we were the only ones there for the entire evening. We were presented with a choice of 4 HUGE lobster tails---one was plenty to share between 2 of us.... More

I cannot imagine even one person writing a good review for their lobster. But it was served to us absolutely plain. It was prepared a la plancha, which means, basically, in a frying pan. It was prepared with no garlic, no flavorings whatsoever, and was served with no salsa and no butter. I had to ask for butter. The salsa... More

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
