We couldn't find the spot we had planned to eat for authentic and creative local fare. There were many spots we should have stopped at around the market square, but we opted for Las Palmeras since it did have a prime spot in front of the water, ferry pier and pedestrian traffic. Make sure to get a table by the street side. The food was okay, but not great and the choices were limited. If you're looking for true Mexican dishes, not much here. They seem to cater to the broader tastes of traveling Americans.

I love lobster when it's grilled and that's what they served. To make it even better, I received 2 huge tails for under $30. Wow! The view was great, right next to the main dock. I'm sorry to say that we were the only people there. I hope this doesn't become their usual. It is alittle tricky to find, but well worth the hunt.

This place is right across the street from ferry exit and close to cruise ship terminal and it is a busy but nice part of town . Nice atmosphere , good service , good food . Very sinple menu it is ala carte soil you want a smaller meal this is good for you , if you want more then you can pick and choose your side dishes . But the entrees are enough for most . Very clean inside .

We went by it early in our day, but stopped before our return boat from a day trip to Cozumel. Great and varied menu, fresh French fries, and a big club sandwich, really hit the spot after a day at the beach. Nice seating to watch the passing parade, we'll return next time for drinks and dinner! Thanks for end of a great day for us!!

We always eat here on our first night in and this year tried their breakfasts, too. Great service but the view is what really draws us. Love watching the activity in the street and the bay. Just an absolutely great experience and good food. Did not like the wine!
