This is the best place to eat on the square. We have eaten here for years and never have a bad meal. Want it a little different or not exactly on the menu? Ask. No big deal, no annoyed staff, no big charge. Great big drinks! Great food by folks who want you to be happy. Ask for El Capitan... More

No better way to spend a stormy evening in beautiful Cozumel than relaxing at Casa Denis. Not much else you can do than sit back, watch the rain, listen to the thunder and enjoy some tacos Yucatan style with a local Soupa de Lima - all accompanied by corn chips and salsa. Great service and good menu selection - definately... More

Love having our first dinner of vacation here. Beautiful view of the plaza and the big Mexian flat, the best Lime Soup on the island, fresh fish cooked perfectly, and big, potent Margaritas. Excellent service provided by Martin and Balthazar. Highly recommend!

One of my favorites on the entire island. It serves Chamorro every day and it's delicious. I share it with my wife and were stuffed when we leave. Say hello to Baldasar.

The waiters around The Square are all accosting tourists to dine at their establishment as you are walking by, but this is one that is worth trying. Don't let the he wandering Mariachi Bands and children selling pasties and women offering crafts put you off. We liked the atmosphere of The Square and dining in the proximity.

i am guessing by now they must be on their third generation of owners in the family. Perfectly located on the square. Sidewalk dining with some of the best traditional food on the island. You will feel and dine like family!

I have been going to Cozumel since 1989. This use to be a GREAT place for food. Since the cruise ships came the quality of food and service has dropped WAY off.

You should come at least once. this place has a bit of history to it. The menus is quite extensive but I had the Mayan chicken dish. Delicious, the chicken just falls off the bone. Great portions and quite tasty. In the front they have a ton of old pictures to look at. Staff are nice enough and speak enough... More
