My third review of La Terraza...its still good.

For the past 25 years my wife and I have been coming to Cozumel at least 2 or 3 times a year. Each trip is short (4days), but we usually eat here twice. That goes back to the old days when it was the original Prima. We ate here last week. I was disappointed, but not in the restaurant. The... read more

First off, our server, Marcos, was awesome both nights. We had the special which was fish one night and the lobster pasta the second. Both were excellent. The bread was great. The red wine was great as well. One of the best thing about this place is it and upstairs terrace and it was much cooler (For August) then street... More

The food is wonderful and the service was great. The view is fun. You are able to watch everything going on around you. Prices were good. The homemade bread is fantastic. The stairs were a little awkward to navigate.

We decided to try this place after the owner showed us the menu and spoke proudly about the homemade food. My husband ordered the lobster tail and I shamelessly ate most of it. Between the amazingly fresh lobster and whatever they did to the drawn butter it was some of the best lobster I've ever eaten. I had the combo... More

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

The Terrace R, Owner at La Terraza, responded to this review

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
