“Great service, fabulous food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

My husband and I went here on our last night in Cozumel per a recommendation from a local. I ordered the catch of the day, fresh lobster and my husband had crab, both were outstanding. Each came with a side of fresh pasta with white sauce, fabulous. The service was incredible and the place is immaculate. The manager/waiter was exceptional, very friendly and attentive. We will be sure to return next year, can't wait to take all of our friends.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

It's been a number of years since we have been in this space previously occupied by Prima but will make it a stop on visits back to the island. I had the lobster ravioli which was good but could be great with a bit more lobster and a touch less sauce. Very generous portion, however. My husband had the crab dinner special - a mound of crab from the east side of the island. The meat was perfectly prepared - nice and tender. He had a side of pesto fetticuni but couldn't eat because it was too heavy on garlic - and we both love garlic so that's saying a lot. The service was spotty at first - couldn't get a second menu so I grabbed one myself. One of the waiters was kind enough to help extract some of the meat from the crab shells my husband thought he had picked through. The gal who ended up being our primary server was very attentive without being aggressive - very sweet lady. Overall, our experience was a good one but there is room for improvement.

“Good Food, Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Ended up here after a horrible experience earlier that night. We were greeted well and taken care of the entire night. The husband/wife that run the restaurant were both great, going out of their way to do whatever they could. Wife had lasagna and I had steak and both were very good. Excellent garlic bread to accompany the meal and the house wine was decent.

not having been to San Miguel for 7 years, it was great to see that this restaurant was reopened.... the service, the food and the ambiance was excellent.... home baked bread, fantastic black angus steaks, and home made deserts were all large in size and fantastic in taste....... if ever you go to Cozumel check out this restaurant you will not be disappointed........

“La Terraza.....the location is still magical and the food is wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

We had heard that the 'old Prima's' location had reopened with new owners, so we were quite excited to check it out. What a treat to see a lot of the same smiling faces as we climbed the stairs. We were welcomed by the new owners, (both lovely people.)
The pasta dishes were all wonderful as well as the grouper. My husband was over-the-moon to discover that they had Key Lime Pie on the menu. They have some of the best...ever! He was even sent home with a 2nd piece of pie for later....so sweet of them!

We went back a 2nd time, and tried different dishes. The Lasagna is SO good!
Wish we could've gone back a 3rd time!

The wait-staff is very attentive....great service!

We are so delighted to have that magical location back....thank you!
