Almost 30 years ago we made our first visit. The tableside caesar was a classic. And i began preparing it at home like them. Last nights was good but a little improvement may be possible. The romaine lettuce needs to be dry as wet lettuce changes the consistency. They also might serve it on chilled salad plates to enhance crispness.... More

Cozumel is known for its fresh seafood rather than its steakhouses. However, Pepe"s is a Steakhouse gem on the beautiful island. A very creative menu, with good seafood and steak options for all tastes.

Pepe's is our classic standby which we went to twice this trip. We made reservations on Open Table on a Wednesday and Thursday evening. Both time we were seating at the tables by the window with the beautiful view of the Cozumel pier and sunset. Jose was our server. Combining both visits, we had the Classic Caesar Salad made by...

Had the Grilled Tuna Steak after a recommendation to try Tuna while on the island. It was exceptional. Make sure to order a Banana Foster if for no other reason than to watch them make it. By far the best service we got the entire time we were on the island, great view overlooking the harbor

We decided to venture away from the all-inclusive we were staying at and venture into the town of Cozumel. After looking at several restaurant menus (dozens to choose from) we decided on Pepe’s Grill, on the main road through Cozumel. It was nothing short of fantastic. The broiled seafood platter (me), Italian pasta with chicken (my Daughters) Broiled scallops with... More

I didn't expect to find this type of restaurant on the island, and really enjoyed both the ambiance and the food. And the view during sunset was so cool! The waiter was most attentive, the prices were reasonable for this level of restaurant, and our food was great. We stepped out of the box and tried the lion fish appetizer,... More

When we stayed in Cozumel for a week, the expectation was to enjoy a ton of good Mexican food. Our last night there however, we acted on a recommendation of some fellow guests and ate at Pepe's which is more of an Italian themed steak and seafood restaurant. Fist off, the view is incredible, especially around sunset. Pepe's is located... More

We enjoyed Pepe's so much we returned for a second evening. Between the guests we had Lobster Mac & Cheese, Crab, Sea Bass, Lobster, and Scallops. Everything was very tasty. Service was impeccable.

Since 1966 Pepe's has been a msut when it comes to dining in Cozumel. In 2012 it underwent a major remodeling. We added a brand new bar and an open terrace for "al fresco" dining. Pepe's is now a modern and vibrant restaurant with a menu that combines the best of the mexican, caribbean and American cuisine. Don´t forget to try our world knowned caesar salad and our Angus Quality American cuts. Happy hour at the bar daily from 6 to 9 pm.
