Off the ship for a stop in Cozumel. Kids were hot. And so my teen was craving a wifi hotspot. And I wanted a beer. This place between the cruise pier and the ferry terminal hit the spot. Not cheap. But much cheaper than wifi on the ship.

We visited Cozumel last July 2016, we went out one night to this restaurant/bar with some friends. On the weekends they have live music and the band was very good (rock music). We had some food and it was really good, it's Maxican/Texmex food. The place is in front of the ferry and gets busy around 11:30pm so make sure... More

And it was well worth it! Fans were going with a nice breeze and we loved it! Atmosphere wonderful and when they realized we were from Alabama then 'Sweet Alabama' was on!! Clean bathrooms and restaurant looked spotless. Quick service with a smile with great food and reasonable prices. It was a hot day so we lingered over drinks and... More

Cesar.. he was the best. After a terrible experience during a jeep rental (see other review) we stopped here to get our minds off of it and regroup. Cesar was very friendly and saw to us right way. We had great margaritas that left me feeling loopy after 1.. or maybe it was the free tequila shooter he supplied us... More

The food was very good. The guacamole was a little bland but the chicken nachos well made up for the guacamole. The prices were comparable to others. The Mexican Fanta Soda is a must.

Our drinks are quite remarkable as well, our bar offers the traditional Margaritas, Mojitos, Daiquiris, Cocktails, Beers and pretty much anything you can drink... now, when it comes to dancing, we know just what you need with our ROCKIN FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS accompanied by The Red Eye Band and our SUNDAYS flavored by the versatile BAND "DEJAVU"... so Viva Mexico!!
