We've lived in Cozumel for over a year now and have walked past this place many times. Finally stopped in for dinner last night. Excellent! I started with the greek salad... Lots of goat cheese and very fresh greens. My husband enjoyed the blue cheese salad. I was not overly hungry so I had the appetizer shrimp scampi. Very good.... More

The Lobster Fettuccine Alfredo is the best you'll ever taste!!! The lobster is brought by the fisherman fresh to the restaurant, it's only served fresh. The fresh prepared fried calamari is excellent! Owners Ed and Shannon are wonderful host and Shannon makes the most wonderful desserts. A must stop for dinner on Cozumel.

We have been coming to Cozumel and eating at this restaurant for about 15 years. We were skeptical when it changed from "Prima" to "La Terraza," but our fears were unfounded. Their quality and atmosphere survived the change of ownership. We always loved the blue cheese salad and the excellent Italian dishes. Outdoor dining in the heart of the city... More

I have responded to this review personally, but I would also like to respond to the rest of the public who might be considering a dinner out with us. We bake fresh bread every day that comes free with every meal, the blue cheese salad that was mentioned is 90 pesos or $6.16 us dollars. We feel this is a... More

I love La Terraza! The food is amazing and service top notch. We visited La Terraza twice on our trip and can't wait to return next year. We were a party of 7 and honored to have met the owners who are just lovely people. Our table was visited by them early and often. I appreciated the attentiveness and good... More

WOW! The fried Calamari is fantastic! The lobster florentine is so good with very large chunks of lobster in a wonderful creamy base!! I could eat it every day. The deserts are made on site and marvelous !!

We were in Cozumel the week before Easter. We were actually walking past La Terraza when one of the gals in our group (there were 11 of us!) started talking to Ed and his hostess who were standing in the doorway of the restaurant. During the conversation, we were all intrigued about the food, the menu and the fact that... More
