We stopped here on the great Cozumel Bar Hop, but liked it the least. It does command a great sea front position, with tables that have amazing views. I know that this side of the island is less developed, but this place looked derelict. Tables were crammed in, and the place was heaving. As we only had an hour here we were advised to order our food straight away, so we ordered some nachos and a couple of beers. And then waited, and waited. Eventually I had to complain, and were brought our beers and some "free" chips and salsa. We finally got our food 10 minutes before we had to leave and had to rush to finish. Not even an apology. They have bathrooms, not nice. From other reviews our experience does not seem typical. As I say, perhaps just a bad day at the office.. There are certainly better places to be found up the coast.

Stopped there for a bit to eat and drink. Very nice people. Ceviche is outstanding. Make sure you get a marker and sign your name to their wall.

This is one of our first stops during our trips to Cozumel, the mixed ceviche is the best, the perfect blend of flavors. My kids love the chicken quesadillas.

Playa Bonita is always a stop on our visit to the east coast of the island. The staff are very friendly and the prices are very reasonable. They recommended a grilled whole red snapper with garlic butter that was outstanding. And the beer was crisp and cold to boot!
