We've eaten here on previous trips and had 2 meals there this trip. The service is good, the menu is varied, the food is served hot. Try the mamay pie or the mamay/mango pie made by the restaurant owner's wife - cool and delicious but not too sweet. You can get an american style breakfast that would be hard to beat in many american restaurants for a very reasonable price - pancakes, omeletes, good coffee, etc.. This has definitely become one of our favorite places in Cozumel!

Been there 3 times with my vegetarian girlfriend during our trip. They changed the menu for her every time so she will be satisfied, and she were. They have a lunch set in 75 mxp, including drink (local ice tea- great!), nachos with sauce, soup, and one of 3 main course with 2 side dishes.
The food was fresh and tasted delicious like was homemade. Also the service was fast and good and they speak English.

Wandered into this nice place one morning for breakfast. The food was fresh and hot, the service was excellent, and the prices were very fair. They had a great menu all around and will definitely visit here again.

Stopped by La Candela for lunch today. Had the chicken tacos and a Sol beer. Tacos were great and beer was cold. Wait service was excellent. Will be back !

We went for lunch while in port. The food was good and the margaritas were good too. A few blocks from the main drag and quite.
