Super friendly service. We had nachos, they were average. The mole enchiladas were almost room temperature. We thought okay, after a bit of a drive, will have to go again and try something else.

In the heart of Cozumel neighborhood. Local ambience. Excellent fresh fish and lots. Raymond very attentive. Has been in family for 30 plus years. A little hard to find if you are driving but well worth it. Mango ice cream a favorite. Extremely reasonable prices.
