We went at suggestion of fellow guests at our hotel. Unfortunately the food wasn’t great, staff was nice. The grilled fish of the day was soaked with butter and over cooked, and drinks were mediocre. The worst unfortunately was some of the other guests at...the restaurant who give tourists a bad rap. One guy from a group got up and started having a cell phone conversation away from his friends, right next to another guest’s table. Talking loudly, spitting over the rail into the sea, he was asked to stop but he blew the complaint off. Staff did nothing.More

We went there twice during our stay because the food was so good and the view was to die for. There were 6 of us and we all tried different items and they were all good. Thank you

Not so sure why the ratings are so high. The food was average and we felt like he staff was trying to oversell us. There is much better Italian food on the island

Service was good accept they seem like they were pushy you through the system . Food I ordered the Rolando calzone which I’ve had before but this time not cook long Enough which they had plenty of time because they were not busy at all...The Server practically begged for a tip Tell me basically how much to get him . So mostly I was disappointed probably will not go back again.More

We are vegetarians and many Italian places we checked around didn’t have Veg choices. But Rolandis did. The Service was excellent and the Food (Pasta, Soups and Desserts were good as well) . The water view table in the night made it extra special. Overall...a bit pricey but worth it - for once in a while dinner outing during vacation. Parking is a bit of a challenge around the restaurant. Only Recommendatin we would have is that a glass or some partition should be added so families with small kids can be safe. The direct ocean view is great for adults but kids have to be careful not to slip over the ledge. Otherwise a great restaurant and service.More

Amazing food, excellent service and great atmosphere. The place is nice and clean, the only bad thing is that there are many mosquitoes and they don’t do anything about it. They could offer some mosquito repellent or get some pest control service.

Service was outstanding, as was the view at sunset and into the evening. All dishes except the Tiramisu was also very good. Cold beer in a cold mug. Great evening all the way around.

We started with the fried calamari, really crispy and done. Sauce could’ve used a bit more spice but it was good. We had the surf and turf with a lobster tail and filet. Lobster tail was perfectly done, flakey and fluffy. The filet was a...bit dry and wished it was more rare then the way it came. Great atmosphere. Israel was a fantastic waiter.More

Rolandi's, like many Cozumel restaurants has outdoor seating; The decor is nice and the service is both efficient and friendly. All members of our group enjoyed their dishes. I had chicken with fine spices which was quite good.

From the front of the building you would never guess how nice it is. The view off the back patio is stunning, especially at sunset. We visited Cozumel for 6 nights and ate here 2 times even though we were at an AI. The pasta...was great and the portion sizes were generous. They bring out some kind of spicy sauce that has habaneros in it that is to die for. I dipped my bread in it and then put some in my Pasta Oglio. I wish I knew the ingredients because I would have it on hand at home always. Service was friendly and Caribbean prompt.More

I ordered the fettuccine with shrimp and vodka sauce and it was plain. If it had some sort of bell pepper it would’ve been better. The New York steak was good. However, the pastas were average. The waiters are very polite and friendly.

Note: We were dropped off and first went into the Gourmet liquor shop directly across the street to grab some wine, vodka & liquor to take back to our hotel. We wanted to buy some of their artisan bread, meats, and cheeses but they couldn't...sit out while we dined :( Gaspar made this dining experience the absolute #1 during our stay in Cozumel. We enjoyed a bottle and a half of pinot grigio which was delicious and kept cold at our table in a stand. We ordered a pizza (same style throughout the island) which was ok, but hubby is a pizza snob so that's to be said. Salad, fresh and dressing was delicious. Bolognese was just ok, it tasted like chef boyardee but I wasn't going to complain, everyone has different tastes. Garlic lobster basted in butter was delectable and tender. Flambeed bananas & ice cream was quite a show and a delicious ending to our evening. We'd go back For Sure!!More

An amazing friendly experience! Our first night we visited Romandi, a favorite of our daughter! Five tired travelers went to dinner on out first night in Cozumel! Wonderful food, friendly service, excellent Mexican wine (I am the wine snob), and my daughter’s favorite server Israel...made our evening wonderful. Surf and turf, dinner specials and pastas were all teriffic. A not to be missed restaurant!More

Ate there twice this week with friends. Both times, food & service were excellent. Second time, Gaspar (waiter) served our banana split by pouring a flaming liqueur between two sauce dishes several times before finally pouring over the dessert! Very impressive! Food was very good...and reasonably priced. View of water was also remarkable.More

At the time we went (Dec/Jan), we didn’t make reservations. We loved the food (and went twice and had different items).I guess to each his own.

Tidy casual, the view over the water is amazing though so you may want to look good for those sunset photos!
