We were kind of happy wandering in Cozumel, walking away from the waterfront, as we were trying to find a more local-feeling place. When we saw this restaurant on the corner, we decided this was it. After a friendly greeting, we were seated in an outdoor courtyard table, which was great. I had the lobster tacos and while not huge,... More

For some reason this place is NEVER full. We just don't get why. We go here at least once per visit to Coz and it has never disappointed. I usually get the mixed grill (because I can't make up my mind) and there's always a couple of things in there that I really really enjoy. Why you would get chicken... More

We ate twice at La Lobsteria, once for a lobster taco lunch and came back the next day for grilled lobster dinner (350 pesos). It was low season in September, and we were the only customers both times. We enjoyed talking with Omar, the owner. The food was really good, and the salsa was the best we had in Cozumel.

The restaurant was off the main road by a few blocks. Nothing really around the restaurant. I had the chicken tacos which were pretty good. My husband had the lobster. He said it was good, but not the best he's had. They didn't show the price of the lobster. They bring you a few choices and you pick which one... More

We ate here on our wedding night and had a fantastic time! Shared a seafood plater that had the most amazing lobster either of us ever had. Romantic little location just off of the main strip.

A gentleman at Casa Mexicana recommended this restaurant to us when asked "where's the best place to get lunch...maybe off the main street". Well, we only had to go 2 blocks down to run into this jewel! We arrived (mid-afternoon) and were the only ones there. A gentleman (I'm guessing it was Omar) sat us. There was a moment when... More

Returned once again to dine with Omar and we had another wonderful meal! I am not a lobster fanatic so had a fish fillet but my friend's lobster was so delicious that I may order it when we return! I have often tried lobster to see what the fuss is about but always thought it was rather tasteless and did... More

I guess I had bad luck. First, I tried calling their phone number for reservations and it is a non working number. We arrived around 6pm and thought it was closed because no one was around. Omar then popped out and seated us quickly. Omar only had $60-$70 priced lobster for me but then somehow was able to find two... More
