Great lunch!!!

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... read 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.

Really good, we told the waiter exactly what we wanted and was cooked deliciously. Cute backyard dinner. Small but cozy.

This restaurant was recommended to us and we went. Small and quaint with great service and food. Has a lot of local color. Not many patrons but don't let that scare you off. A definite must go to place

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.

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 probably the best salsa on the... More

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
