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

Casa Dennis is my and my wife's favorite restaurant on Cozumel, mainly because we have many fond memories of good food and potent margaritas. This restaurant boasts that it is the oldest on Cozumel and has place mats with the history to prove it. The food is always good and you can often negotiate a drink special, particularly for a...
