Al Pie de Carbon is just a few doors up from the hotel where we stayed (Flamingo - check reviews) and we'd struck up a bit of friendly rapport with the staff when passing by before even going there. They specialise in steak and offer Angus or local Mexican beef. We come from the UK and have travelled widely in... More

They have a variety of items on there menu and all food was delicious. Prices were very reasonable. Service was great, our waiter remembered us and what we drank every time we were there. We had a lot of fun with them, service and food was great.

We were there on 8/1what a steak. The food was great and so was the service. You can watch your steak being cooked on the open fire. This place is a must go if you like steak. Just 5 tables inside and a couple outside. They know how to put the meal together. GREAT

Been there at least three times and LOVED IT! Perfect rare steak and nice seating on the street out front. After dinner go a few doors down Calle 5 to Ohana Bar and Restaurant and ask Matt for some of his wife Angie's famous Peanut Butter Tequila. A homemade family recipe that you cannot get enough of. Ohana is one... More

BEST New York Strip I've had in a long time if not the best ever. Small restaurant with only about 10 tables, but maybe that's what makes it soooo good. The meat and veggies are cooked over wood coals and the flavor is wonderful. If you want a great steak in Cozumel Al Pie de Carbon is a must.

The grilled beef and chicken is wondeful and the the way it is paired with grilled breads is delicious. Watch out for the Magaritas, the aren't for the lightweights. Only got half way through mine before realizing it was packing a serious agave punch.

First let me say the staff is fabulous. We do not speak Spanish and they speak very little English but were so willing to make sure we could communicate -and they were all very young and respectful. First night we shared and got the grilled vegetable salad -a must oh my gosh -and chicken tacos. Simple yet so tasty. Tonight... More

Grilled vegetable salad a must sooo good u don't need dressing on it. We got just that and shared chicken tacos. Oh my gosh something so simple yet amazing. Disappointed they were out of empanadas as we heard they were to be especially good there. Others around us had lobster and couldn't stop talking about it. Little restaurant so expect... More

One can't eat Mexican food ALL the time, not matter how much one might love it. A local friend raves about their steaks so we decided to try it. Our visit left us fairly unimpressed. "American-style" steak is not particularly common in the area, so we were happy to see reasonably thick steaks. We were also happy to see the... More
