Excellent Ceviche!

We were recommended to come here for Ceviche because it apparently was the best in Cozumel Well our expectations of the place were not dashed. The Ceviche was very, very good. Magda from Villa Escondida was spot on! Don't go anywhere else for Ceviche! The best Ceviche is here!

Stopped in and bought a big snapper from them. Took it home and had two meals out of it. It was excellent. I guess I need to try the restaurant part now

We were not disappointed after walking a long way to get to this place. We'll take a cab next time. Super nice family took wonderful care of cooking and serving delicious, fresh seafood and done in a way I wouldn't be able to do myself so it was an extra special treat for my husband and I. Yummy, reasonably priced... More

Great stop for grilled fish, whole or filet. Choose your own if you like. My favorite ceviche. A bit hard to get to the first time. Dine in is very casual covered pation setting. Take with works well, too.

Went to San Carlos this evening with friends. They brought out a large dish of ceviche that was more than enough for the four of us. We all had grilled fish Veracruz and it was excellent from presentation to taste. The owner came out and spoke with us and made us feel welcome. The waiter took care of all our... More

Super delicious, super cheap, and your meal comes with free (and delicious) ceviche. My wife had the fried whole fish (140 pesos) and I had fish tacos (2 big filets each on 4 tacos for 100 pesos). They were very fresh, so cheap, so delicious. Even the beers were cheap (25 pesos or about $1.50 USD).

I cannot say enough good things about this place. My husband and I like cheap eats and seek out places in neighborhoods where the locals often go. The other day I had the fried whole fish (140 pesos) and he had fish tacos (2 big filets each on 4 tacos for 100 pesos). So fresh, so cheap, so delicious. Even... More
