During a recent vacation to Cozumel island, we went to this restaurant 3 times. The atmosphere, service, and food were wonderful! After our first meal there, we specifically chose to go there again on our last evening. Everything is cooked on the grill outside. Wonderful bread basket. Best baked potato ever. Charming servers. Reasonable prices.

We had the dinner for two which was a bit much for us, but we loved trying all the different kinds of meat

We stayed in the hotel next door and when we were arriving from a day of surfing and snorkeling we were quite tired and hungry. The bbq smell and the proximity made us choose this place. Service and food and very good for Mexican standards. I recommend it.

I think I may have gone to a different restaurant than everyone else who's reviewed Al Pie del Carbon. It was on calle 3 and the credit card charge showed Al Pie del Carbon II. I wish I would have known that there were two locations. At any rate, our food was not very good. One of our party ordered... More

We were on Cozumel for 4 weeks, and we were hungry for a steak one night. Al Pie de Carbon fit the bill. The server was very nice, the steaks were perfectly cooked on the charcoal grill, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We had a local steaks, served along with baked potatoes, and they were very good. The menu... More

We always try to find a new restaurant while in Cozumel, and this time was no different. We have eaten at Pepe's and liked it, but this steak house grills over a open fire which gives the meat a better flavor. It has Certified Angus, and another beef which they call Mexican beef which I thought had a better taste... More

Al Pie de Carbon is one of the best restaurants I have encountered. We have been returning to Cozumel for many years and this is a little hidden gem! The food and service is outstanding! Everything is cooked fresh right before you on the curbside grill. Although they pride themselves on their beef options, the seafood is wonderful! They also... More

I got in after a long day traveling--what a great smell, just two doors from the hotel. Eating streetside I had the shrimp tacos and beer. It was delicious and a very pretty presentation.

We ate here for the first time, after many visits to Cozumel. Excellent food and service. Yes, this is really a steak place on the island of seafood. They specialize is Angus beef, but we opted for the Mexican variety, which was great. A nice filet, a T-bone, salad, sangria and beer was only $575 pesos. Service was great, and... More
