I would not go as far as saying that this was the best food on the island. It was pretty damn close though.

Pescaderia San Carlos is a small seafood restaurant with a local feel. During our visit we tried the cevechi and Mexican style grouper. Both were great! The one man band that was playing was also a treat.

I would recommend Pescaderia San Carlos to anybody that is wanting to visit a restaurant with a local feel.

Chef Emily took our group of 8 here for lunch. What a great time. The fish was fresh, they can prove it, and was very tasty. The place has a full bar and live entertainment but closes pretty early. It is a great place for fish!

A little hard to find and well worth the effort. Best shrimp ceviche ever. They started us with a dish of free fish ceviche, added a complimentary bowl of mixed soup. One order of the ceviche was enough for both of us. Wow!

If you're just a tourist stick with the Senior Frog restaurant at the pier... if you're a traveler you have got to check this place out! The trip to and from is part of the experience, but the destination 'Pescaderia San Carlos' is the real deal! Great fresh fish, great service, great pricing and authentic in every aspect. You will not regret it.

During our research on where to eat in Cozumel (one day stop on cruise) this was a must see....so we went and saw.

The Seafood Ceviche was AWESOME (we had never eaten this before) and boy it will be a must on my seafood must have list.

We ordered a whole fish to share and is was FABULOUS. The beers were cold and the food was awesome...what more can you ask for!!


Alejandro was our helper and he was so kind. My husband lost his keys and Alejandro and his friend searched and searched all the while the Owner singing away.. LOVED IT. He came over to my husband after we found the keys and serenaded him... it was great!!!

Not a drive by kind of place... so family friendly and welcoming!!
