Primarily, the restaurant is a seafood restaurant. Buy, there is also an impressive variety of meat dishes on the menu as well. We lunched here after a snorkeling tour and were very pleased with the service and quality of the food we were served. Very convenient to the main ferry terminal and shopping we stopped here after touring the museum... More

Only saw this place as walking by the beach - it is above the museum and difficult to establish as a restaurant. Great service , lovely food and fantastic view. Would I go back ? Definitely- probably tomorrow

Everything was delicious! The view was wonderful! And the service was good as well. Don't buy the 9$ deal down stairs (it only includes scrambled eggs). You need to try something different that you can only get in mexico!

My husband and I had dinner at the Restaurante del Museo on November 28th. We could not believe that at 7pm we were the only patrons. We ordered the special Mexican platter. It was a huge amount of delicious food that included steak, chicken, pork chops, enchiladas, taquitos, quesadillas, beans and guacamole. Everything was delicious on the platter, but we... More

We met some new friends and they took us here for breakfast. My husband and I enjoyed our very tasty breakfast with a view. Staff is very friendly, service was great and meal was too. It will definitely be one of our "go to" places for breakfast. Great prices too!

I rarely go now but thought it a good choice to take a visitor to enjoy the view at breakfast. My mistake. Other than the view, I found little to like. Even the long time waiter seemed to have changed. Maybe he felt ashamed of the food they are offering. My guest ordered eggs with ham. She couldn't find the... More

We had a wonderful dinner. The fish with vegetables was very tasty. The service was good as well. The place is pleasant with an ocean view.

Our family was visting Cozumel for a week and on Sunday 5/15/16, we wanted to visit the museum. When we arrived, the attendant told us that the museum is not open on Sunday (even though the web site says it is) but the restaurant was. My daughter and I ventured upstairs and stood at the door for a few minutes... More

I enjoyed my omelette. The kids like there pancakes. Service was good. The setting is nice for downtown. Good American coffee.

Great food. Great atmosphere. Phenomenal view walking distance from the cruise ship docks. We've been to Cozumel before and were looking for something low key and quiet. Downstairs is a museum which took 30 minutes to tour but the private restaurant upstairs was perfection. Small staff that speaks decent English. Small menu which means they are good at what they...
