I've been going to this establishment for over 10 years it has never disappointed. It's a small restaurant with fantastic atmosphere, staff, and of course, fresh lobster! Most tails are shareable and caught fresh daily$$$. You pick which looks the best to you. The key lime pie is some of the best I've had. The place is lit by candles and low lighting. Staff---always welcoming.

We wanted to splurge one night and have a really nice dinner while in Cozumel. We chose the PERFECT place!. The restaurant is small. It only has about 5 tables or so, but is set in a romantic candlelit atmosphere. The menu is simple. Lobster. They have 2 appetizers. We chose the bacon wrapped shrimp (see pictures). They let you pick your lobster tails from the freshly caught selection and sell it to you based on weight. We chose the largest one they had (it was gigantic) and it was $66. We had them split it in half so we could just share the one (at no charge!). Each of us got 1/2 the tail, along with a side of rice and freshly steamed to perfection medley of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and potatoes. The entire meal was cooked absolutely flawlessly. We were both quite full. After the meal, Jimmy, the waiter came by with complimentary after dinner shots. Not sure what they were, but they really hit the spot. It was like a banana smoothie type drink. After dinner, the owner, Fernando, invited is to have another complimentary shot with him and his wife at the small bar area. While he would not disclose the ingredients of this mystery banana smoothie type shooter, he was more than happy to offer another complimentary round. We talked for a while, and he really made us feel like guests in his home. It was the perfect ending to a perfect romantic evening in Cozumel. Definitely will be returning on a future visit!

Many people here are mixing up the two places that sit side-by-side. THE Lobster House is run my Fernando and his father for decades. IT IS OUTSTANDING! The other is run by a family member next door that is not of the same level of quality.
Ask for Fernando, a tall lean Spanish looking local who is fluent in English. Tell him "Memo Viento sent me" and you will be treated very well.

The Lobster house has a left and right side section. Eat on the left. The lobster and steak was just great and the keylime pie is some of the best I have ever had. Cool decor. Just wear shorts and you are set. The lobster is fresh and you can pick out the one you want.

The Lobster House is a great local establisment that we never miss when we visit Cozumel. The setting is very rustic and romantic. There is no menu. The only entre available is succulent lobster! They keep a pan of "tails" to choose from, priced by the pound. Awesome conch chowder, rice and mixed veggies to compliment the lobster. Full bar also available. Live guitar to entertain while you dine. A wonderful dining experience! don't midd it!
