“Just What We Were Looking For!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband and I spent a few hours in Cozumel on Saturday as it was a stop on our cruise. I knew it was going to be mega-touristy there, but also wanted to try to get a lunch that I felt was somewhat authentic. I had read about Casa Denis online - it's supposedly Cozumel's oldest restaurant - and it was an easy find right off the main square. The staff was very friendly and spoke English. It was very relaxing to sit outside and people-watch.

All of the Yucatecan food we had was homemade and delicious. Complimentary chips and fresh salsa were brought out first. Then I had the Fish Filet with Mayan Spinach Sauce and my husband had the Grilled Octopus. We also shared some Guacamole. Really, there were no complaints about anything we had and I thought $35 for the food plus two sodas was a fair price. If you want something other than a burrito while in Cozumel, eat here!

“Our favorite restaurant by far!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

My family stayed on the island for 10 days, and this was by far our favorite restaurant! Wonderful food and the location right on the square was perfect for people watching. We made sure to eat here a couple of times during our stay. Great margaritas, too.

“Great spot on the square!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

It's always fun sitting out front here and watching all the action. They are one of the oldest restaurants on the island. Good food and fair prices. You usually get to hear some local music here also.

“Good Mexican Food off Plaza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Outdoor eating. Chips and salsa served. Hot and gringo style. We shared the Mexican platter for two. It was wonderful. Flank steak, pork tenderloin, quesa dias, chicken tacos and tamales. Refried beans, quacolmole and fried onions and peppers served with tortillas. $30 dollars. A lot of food, we brought some home. I had a Mojito which was very large and delicious. Service was good, friendly waiters, english spoken.
