The best drinks in Cozumel are at Palomar! The drinks are made by a highly skilled mixologist and the servers are educated on what would be the best for specific taste palettes. The food is incredible and easily shared with a group of people. All...octopus dishes are incredible and well crafted. It’s great to sit either on the porch to people watch or you can eat in their private garden. Absolutely amazing experience!More

First time here and it was amazing! We had a nice view of the water/sunset, the drinks were awesome (I love a good cocktail), and the food was excellent! I had the lobster which was the best lobster I've ever had!! It was marinated with...lemon butter and wow it just tasted amazing! Also the grilled octopus for an appetizer was amazing too, full of flavor! Highly recommend!More

This place is fantastic, the appetizers and snacks are delicious and their draft beer is very tasty. It is a few blocks away down the ferry station. Nice little backyard as well

Stumbled along this place at 11 pm on a Sunday and had a couple of beers and the Pork Belly Tacos. Gerardo, the bartender was excellent. Nice to have someone to chat with. Met a guy from Hamilton, Canada where my mother lives. I will...be back. Those tacos sneak into my dreams at night. Mmmmm so good.More

Wanted to grab drinks and watch the sunset and it was amazing! The mixology was on point. So tasty and the right amount of alcohol. If you like spicy and mezcal get the habanero! Omar was our waiter and he was very nice and great...speedy service.More

this little restaurant near the Cozumel museum! Our waiter, Juan, was so accommodating, and the garden in the back had a great ambience. Prices were reasonable and the food was really tasty (try the pork tacos).

Lovely View Good Service. Just returned from dinner here this evening. Location on the Melacon is great, fun to look out at the ocean and to people watch. Music was a bit loud for my taste, but maybe I’m just an old fogey. Food was...pretty good overall, but there are so many really good places to eat in Cozumel. We had the beef “ceviche” which I enjoyed very much (imaginative and well executed), the pork belly tacos which were just okay and a seafood medley with fideo (very fine short pasta) which was quite tasty. All in all a good meal, but not great. Our server Juan was always ready to help when we needed him and did well.More

Make a reservation, and if you can, sit on the front veranda portion of this 100 + year old building. They have a mixologist who will make an amazing (mezcal) drink for you, and they offer wonderful and unique dishes. We had an appetizer that...was a take on empenadas (infladitas), a main for two made of fish, shrimp, octopus and clams and served in what seemed like a paella pan. It was scrumptous. Dessert kept simple with brown sugar glazed pineapple and ice cream. Watch the world go by on the boulevard and see the ocean, or sit in the courtyard which looked very cozy and comfortable. Prices were very fair. We'll return next year.More
