We had wanted a nice place for lunch after dining on the cruise ship all week and when we arrived were greeted but Joney and he was our waiter. The menu has many options and the portions were large and the ice tea was a welcome sight after attempting to drink cruise ship ice tea. This place has awesome food... More

We used to visit this place some years ago for their outstanding pina coladas. We visited again May 2016 and were unpleasantly surprised. The pina colada was terrible and so was the food. We sent about 90% of our food back. When the waiter saw that he was picking up full plates, he apparently spoke with the manager and reduced... More

On our recent trip to Cozumel, we wanted a bite to eat before all of the local festivities began on Sunday night at 8PM in the town square. We first tried Fat Tuesday, but they informed us they only serve drinks at that time, no food. So we turned around and there was Las Palmeras. We were quickly seated at... More

My family ate here for dinner one night during our week long trip to Cozumel. It was so good we came back for our last meal here before heading home. Wait staff was very good, drinks were great, but the highlight was the Tampiqueña steak. Wow...melt in your mouth delicious! Everything we ordered was really good (during both visits). Highly...

We visited after a recommendation and was not disappointed. We were on the hunt for traditional Mexican food and we were able to have a large share plate tacos, tostados, enchilattas , salsa, more than I can remember and it was filling and delicious. Service was good and helpful, and the restaurant was impressive, with open frontage and fans, so... More

This is a great place for a quick, fresh meal amid friendly faces in Cozumel. We had a delicious meal of grilled jumbo shrimp preceded by fresh guacamole and a lovely frozen strawberry margarita. Fernando Castro was our server and he was friendly, efficient, and super-helpful! Highly recommend this place, its menu and the friendly staff, especially Fernando!

We have been going to this charming restaurant on the waterfront for decades -- and still find it a treat. The waiters are the friendliest and the food is served promtply and fresh. Lots of classic Mexican cuisine!
