Wow!!!! A fantastic restaurant and well worth your time and pesos. The craft drinks are out of this world and the food is 5-star with a masterful presentation for each course! You can’t go wrong with any of the steaks which are cooked to perfection...& if you think it needs to be heated up or a piece needs a little more time to cook, you can place it on the coal stone which is on your plate. Finally, the staff is AMAZING! The grill master - Patricia - is a true boss lady that you can watch run three stations through the window and Circe, Nataly, and Alexa make sure you are well taken care of the entire time you are there. Forget the rest, eat at the best!More

Dining here was one of the bests decisions we made during our trip in Cozumel. It's such a wonderful experience for me and my husband. We were well taken care of by Saul. The grilled octopus was fresh and cooked to perfection. We also loved...their drinks. Solito especially. Can't wait to go back here!More

Delicious food, creative drinks, a beautiful setting for sunsets and the hardest working staff on the island. Bajau was selected for a large rehearsal dinner and general manager Rico and his staff made this evening picture perfect. From the shrimp, to steak, incredible dessert and...drinks, it was top service all around. We have been going to the island since 1979 and Bajau is an extraordinary fabulous restaurant that is a must do!!!More

All the food was delicious, but the tuna toast was to die for. Came back again just for the tuna toast and the super hospitable hostesses. Fabiola was fabulous!!!! She made us feel like family. Nash was gracious and accommodating. We were staying near by...and they always said hello using our names as we walked past. I will definitely come back the next time I’m in Cozumel! Wish I was able to stop by to say goodbye.More

I can't say enough good about this restaurant and the wait staff. First, the location is great. Beautiful ocean view with Windows open and allowing breeze. The music is lively but not distracting. Fabiola and Nas felt,like friends after we ate 2 meals there on...our 7 day trip. The food? Exceptional! The tuna toast may be the best appetizer ever created. The roasted corn chowder was divine. Tableside Caesar Salad was so fresh! And Nataly made my gin and tonic at the table. This was a great find!More

Excellent dinner sharing several small plates. We especially enjoyed the pork belly, but our garlic shrimp, tuna toast, and fish tacos were superb also. Our server, Circe, was great! Highly recommend!

We've been eating at Bajau since it opened. We're in Cozumel 4+ times a year. Dinner tonight - good. Food always is. Big rip-off is the 15.5 peso to USD exchange they us. BS... Dinner beware.

We eat at Bajau every time we come to Cozumel and we haven't been disappointed yet. The tableside prepared ceasar salad was amazing. We also had the mussels and ribs coupled with a couple of mezcallinas. All was excellent.
