Benitos is a lovely restaurant off the beaten path in Cozumel. We enjoyed a large meat lovers pizza. It was loaded, not skimpy. Tasted delicious, we will be back.

Benitos was by far one of our favorite places that we ate at while on the island. It’s further away from the ferry and plaza but well worth it! From the atmosphere, food, and value we loved everything about Benitos. This will be on our...list as a regular restaurant we will eat at when we visit Cozumel again!More

We ordered take out from Benitos of pizza and lasagna, the pizza tasted like a frozen pizza and the lasagna was average. The delivery fee was as much as the food costs which was a bit of a surprise

We walked down the street from where we were staying on the first night and found this place. There is seating inside and outside and we decided to sit outside. All COVID precautions were taken and they had a hand washing station as you entered....The menu's were using your smart phone. They bring out bread with several different types of dips and it was amazing! We sat and watched them make our pizza in the brick oven and shortly our pizza loaded with meat came out. It was the best pizza ever!!! Our daughter absolutely loved it as well that we ended up coming back a second night during our stay. Our waiter was Sondre and he was the best. He helped us with some of our Spanish and we joked around about creating a "Mexican pizza" like we have back home. He said he would put in a good word to the chef...maybe next time they'll have it on the menu. ;) When we returned the second time, Sondre remembered us and we were so glad to have him as our waiter again. If you are looking for some great tasting pizza...you have to try this place out.More

Last night in the middle of our Covid vacation we gave them a visit. It was unexpected and good food. The pizza is brick oven baked and it’s more like a pita bread consistency. We ordered the calamari and it was awesome, tasty with this...really savory salad on the side. Kids portions pizza and pasta are big, my kids had left over and they like to eat. Service was great and attentive. Different pizza but good, great little location away from hustle and bustle of pier and downtown. Go don’t miss the calamariMore

We tried Benitos on the reccomendation of some aquantences. We ordered drinks while deciding on what food we wanted and these arrived at our table promptly. We decided to try their pizza and placed our order. After at least thirty minutes, we still did not...have our food and asked about our order. The host explained that they had some problem with our order and assured us that our food would arrive soon. Fifteen minutes later we asjked again, as we still had no food. Finally, after about an hour we got our pizza. In fairness, I must say that we were given a round of drinks on the house as compensation for the long wait. The pizza was excellent and fresh out of the oven. We will try Benitos again, only because it was highly recommended by several people prior to when we dined there.More

I wanted to give this place 5 stars because this place make amazing wood fired pizza. It was so good and I almost regretted not getting a large. The only thing that bummed me out was I did not like the Tiramisu. Tiramisu is my...favorite dessert on the planet and I wanted to like it. we took 2 bites and ate no more. I would still go and check out the amazing pizza. I can't say anything to the service as we had it delivered, but I have heard good things.More

My wife and I were craving pizza and found this place listed on Tripadvisor. We're so glad we did. The Caprese salad was very tasty and the pizza was perfect. Cooked just right with a crispy crust, perfect amounts of sauce, toppings and cheese. The...service was very attentive. The only challenge...having to find it. It's a few blocks off the beaten path into a neighborhood. It's worth finding and we'll be back!More
