We went here on the recommendation of our spearfishing guide Anibal. At first we were a little leery to go to a local place, but we decided to give it a chance and we were glad we did! We showed up with a bag of triggerfish and snapper at 3:00 in the afternoon. We ordered some beers while they were cooking the fish. First, they brought us some snacks-- tamales, nachos, squid salad, and chicken wings (included because we bought beer). Next, came the triggerfish ceviche which was excellent, lots of lime, cilantro, and red onion. Finally, they brought our main meal--the triggerfish prepared with butter and garlic along with rice, vegetables, and garlic bread. They also prepared the snapper whole and brought that out. We enjoyed this feast for about $40 USD for 4 people. What a bargain! Don't be afraid to try this local gem!

We had a great meal at Las Tortugas again with the crew of Eagle Ray Divers. The meal was great and the staff was also. We all very much enjoyed the food and company. If you have a chance to visit this great local restaurant it is worth your time and money. Located on 30th near 19th street.

Most of the customers are locals, but tourists are very welcome. The food is traditional and a good value. The arrachera and fajitas are two of my favorites and their margaritas are quite good. Oh..and we always order guacamole, chips and pico de gallo.

Our taxi driver suggested las tortugas as one of the most traditional restaurants in Cozumel. It is very humble and clean, not too big. Service is a bit slow, there's a small area for kids to play at. Portions are fair and served with side dishes such as rice and beans.

We visited this place last year and came back again for a fantastic meal with family and our new local friends. 7 ate for about 650p. wow. The chicken fajitas were just right and the margaritas were yummy. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We will be back next year.
