In 2012 we loved this place & I gave it an excellent review. Since then, the owner no longer does the grilling. In 2014 we thought we were there on an "off-night". In 2015 the meals were not great & my friend couldn't even eat his steak it was so tough (even though he ordered the more expensive US grade).... More

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 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.

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
