Enjoy a beautiful sunset with a romantic dinner in the beach after a full day enjoying watersports, snorkeling and fishing trips. The only one left old style on the island beach bar for lunch and dinner with the freshest catch of the day. Delicious and special flavors of the sea is the signature of Alberto's Restaurants over the years in our three locations the sea food caught by the local fishermen been these the fresh catch of the day. Lobster tails, Whole King Crab, Mahi Mahi & Red Snapper are some of the favorite choice of our customers awarding us for five consecutive years.

We walked down from the Iberostar for a few drinks and live music. Fun, lively atmosphere. Drinks were excellent and very inexpensive. Live band was awesome.

It may be a trip to get to if you are staying in town or north but well worth the time to get there - First the staff is amazing, the term friendly and fun doesn't adequately describe the staff bottom-line the staff made a...meal at Alberto's even more memorable - The food is good and fairly priced with decent portions - We are heading back to Cozumel in July and Alberto's is a diffident destination at least onceMore

One of the best meals I have ever had! For starters Edgar is amazing. He showed us his fresh catch of the day which was literally caught that morning. The two times we went they had a selection of lobster, what they called king crab...but was more like a stone crab to me, and a fish that looked like a red snapper. We tried all three and the fish cooks two ways, fried and grilled. I can’t say which was better!!! Drinks and great too! It’s located right on the beach. If you for to Cozumel don’t skip this place. This place will not disappoint.More

On our recent trip to Cozumel, we stopped by Alberto's Beach Bar on two nights. Staff is exceptional and they all go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. On both visits, there was live music. The food is always fresh and...always delicious. You would have to be a real downer to find something wrong with sipping drinks and eating delicious, freshly prepared food while listening to live music and watching the sun set over the ocean.More

The Chief waiter was an amazing guy. We have a gluten issue in our household and they were very helpful with determining what to eat. No one got sick! The food was amazing. The Conch cerviche may have been one of the top 5 things...to ever go in my mouth. They had a cool band playing at 5-6pm, great ambiance too.More

The food was decent it was all covered in butter, its the main ingredients in every dish almost. The place had chairs and tables next to the ocean and it was ok. The day we went they had a rock band and they played decent...music. IF YOU ARE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT COVID DO NOT GO HERE, The staff had masks all hanging under their chin, huge amounts of people and tables. After the band played and people were dancing with a DJ on they made a line and gave free tequila shot by having staff members stand on chairs and drip tequila from a bottle into the mouth, they used the same bottle and put it inside peoples mouths for everyone on the line just kept going 4-5 times this happened. This is the type of restaurant for people that are "anti maskers" or act as if COVID did not wipe out large portions of the populations.More

Food - fantastic! Overpriced in my opinon...but a good bit. This is the only downside to the place. Music - very diverse, except nothing too current, which for me is a huge bonus. Current music isn't music in my opinon. But, it's diverse enough so...there's a song for everyone. Though there wasn't a band the evening I went (Sat, 27 Mar), I did overhear it play my last couple nights at the neighboring Iberostar resort. They were pretty good from what I heard. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Scenery - breathtaking. Though it's quite warm there (duh, it's MX :D ), at around the beginning of sunset when I went (5pm), it's not at all overly warm. During the summer mos may be a different story..not sure. But, the sunset was extremely gorgeous. Couple this with the pretty good service me & a couple resort friends received during dinner..this place is worth the 2min walk on over. The only reason for the 4stars is because of the 1 minor discrepancy I listed above (price). Oh, and they have a gift shop, but would be nice to have a bit more of a selection of shirts...and in American sizes of L and XL (more in XL as international sizes generally run smaller than in USA. This is my experience in both MX and Europe). Recommended? Absolutely. I told everyone I met at the resort they should go. You should too!More

Albertos is by far the best restaurant in Cozumel! The staff is excellent and the seafood is out of this world. The sunset is beautiful and the entertainment is great. We will definitely be back!

We will definitely be back!!! Just a simple beachside bar and restaurant with fair prices and incredible food. Fajitas and shrimp as well as a chicken nacho appetizer served up by friendly attentive staff. This was a much needed break from the food at the...all-inclusive we were staying at. Glad we found it!More
