Food was decent enough. We got there and saw a 2 for 1 drink special. We ordered 2 pina coladas (one for each of us). The waiter suggested and pointed to a 'mexican combo'. There was a picture of it on the menu. Above the picture showed several items including a 'mexican plate'. We assumed it was 450 pesos as... More

We were in off a cruise ship for the day, wanted a quick snack for lunch. Chicken Nacho's...pretty easy. We asked for Chicken Nachos minus the beans, almost an hour later we received beef nachos with beans! Since it took an hour we didn't want to send it back, so we ate some of it. Wasn't even that busy, not... More

They continually blast incredibly loud techno music, even during the quiet family Sunday night gatherings at the fountain. The owner and waitstaff are oblivious to how God awful their pounding, painful music is to anyone in the immediate vicinity and beyond. While this used to be a nice place to eat, new management has driven it into the ground.

Excellent mariachi band, real authentic food and drinks, great setting with a beautiful view. Get off the tourist attraction path and find the real thing

The Plaza Leza is located in the main square area waking distance from where the ferry boats from Playa Del Carmen arrive. Walking through the square we heard the music coming from Plaza Leza and it looked pretty good so we stopped in for dinner. 2 minutes after we were seated (we were the only people in the entire restaurant)...

Had a work retreat cruise and the port was Cozumel. After walking from the international pier we stopped at 'frogs' for a drink but didn't want to eat there. We wanted authentic Mexican food. Walking around the corner up a bit we stumbled on this restaurant. Two for one drinks, a shared combo platter and some fish tacos we were... More

I have dined here a few times before because I love authentic Mexican food. I noticed this time Plaza Leza had a Trip Advisor sticker. I don't know whether there is a new owner, new chef or new manager but our meal was just terrible. The pre-meal chips were burned. The service was very slow and it took a long... More

We love this place--every time we come to Cozumel, we make it a point to sit on the main square and enjoy margaritas and watch the people go by. The staff is friendly and never in a hurry to turn over tables so it's a great place to relax. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Try it!!

I have been coming here for many years and it's always a pleasure. People will tell u to avoid restaurants in the plaza but this one has been here for years and is not a tourist-gauging dump. Sitting outside is a fun people-watching spot as it is the middle of the plaza. Mariachis will stop at ur table to play... More

This little local restaurant is located just on the south side of the Clock Tower Square in downtown Cozumel. It very much has the local feel, the servers were friendly, and the prices quite reasonable. My husband & I ordered the chicken fajita which was served in a steaming pan with the sides of fresh salsa, quacamole, & sour cream.... More
