Our group had a variety of entrees and appetizers. All were fresh, well-prepared. Service was pleasant and very accomodating. Open air seating was back from the street so much quieter.

We ate here twice during our 7 night stay. My husband had surf and turf both meals for $23usd. I had the coconut shrimp $19usd the first night which was real crispy which I enjoyed. But then I had a taste of my husband's lobster dipped in oil with roasted garlic which was amazing. The second time I had just... More

Ate here late afternoon after getting off the Cozumel ferry. It's rustic and cosy and staff were very welcoming. We ordered one portion of nachos between two and it was huge! You also get free tacos, guacomole and salsa before your starter, so don't be tempted to guzzle the freebies down as the meal portions are big. You also get... More

Each meal started with lime soup, which was very good. I had filet mignon and my husband had surf and turf (filet... More

Had dinner here on 5/11/15. The food was great and the staff was friendly! The price was cheap ($50.00) for 2 appetizers, 2 dinners and 6 beers. They also brought out a small slice of flan for each of us. You also get chips,salsa,and guacamole to start! Portions are huge and everything tastes amazing. Thank you for a great meal!... More

A three course meal for 65 pesos! They serve this from 2-6pm. And have a different menu for dinner. You get sopa de lima, a choice of meat, chicken, fish,beef or pork, a small portion of flan for dessert and unlimited agua fresca. The food is very good, definitely worth a visit!

Shopping on fifth we took a little detour and found this little place. The food and service was amazing. We even ran into a taxi driver later that night that drive by and saw us eating there and told us how good and affordable it was.
