“This place was AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2009

It took us a while to find this place but our search was very well worth it!! We shared between 4 people the $30 special package: 3 kinds of cevice (snail, fish, shrimp), and 3 kinds of fish (1 fried fillet, 1 sauteed filled, and 1 whole fried snapper) and tortilas and beans. Oh, and you also get a complimentary ceviche plate instead of chips and salsa as soon as you sit down. The owner was very nice and I can only say nice things abou this place. Oh wait, this is actually kinda funny, but this was not the only place I saw this: the toilet did not have a seat, so make sure you do your squatting excercises before you go there. Other than that, the place was great and the food was AMAZING!!!!

“local fish market and restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2008

This quiet, neighborhood combination fish market and "to go" stand also has a few tables in the backyard where you can have a fresh fish lunch. Located on Avenue 50 Bis means it's a ways back from the waterfront and so don't expect fancy settings. If your looking for a place your dive master takes his kids for a long lunch after a day of diving this is it.

The fish is fresh and the specialty is ceviche. We normally get filetes empanizada (battered fried fish) together with rice and a small cabbage salad. This is a traditional but basic Cozumel lunch. They have cold beer in the fridge and the owner will sometimes come over to say hi. Try it for a taste of local flavor.
