We just went here today and are already planning to go back. Reasonable prices; whole fish $8 or filet $7 with large portions. Extremely tasty, not much seasoning, if any, just the natural flavor of the fish complimented by the cooking process. We had 4 beer and these fish meals that come with cole slaw, rice and tortillas, as well as free nachos/salsa and fish cocktail, all for $26 USD before tip. Great service, family run, outdoor seating in cute garden. I'm not sure it is open at night, most come for lunch. This place is closed on Monday, about 12 blocks from the main square and may be difficult to spot. A taxi from anywhere downtown here is $25-30 Pesos. Taxis from taxi stands, especially those near hotels charge more, expect to pay at least 50 Pesos, but flag one on the street and they're half price.

My husband and I ate at Pescaderia San Carlos on our second day in Cozumel after hearing so many great things about it. For $32, we ate a lot! We had a huge grouper for 2, 1 complementary order of conch ceviche, 1 small order of conch/shrimp ceviche, and 4 beers total. They also brought out a huge bowl of chips and salsa. The other patrons were mostly local which is always a good sign. The owner was there entertaining the customers by singing and telling jokes (he did pretty well actually)! From what we were told by the staff at Park Royal, the owner of Pescaderia San Carlos has become more famous since he is now on the local radio station. We were there on a Sunday and it was packed! The service was great and so was our meal! By no means is it fancy in there. It's basically a store front with some tables set up in the back and a garden in the middle. We will definitely be back!

Diego was wonderful about explaining the menu, and of all the countless meals I've eaten in restaurants, his fish and ceviche was the most memorable. He told us he uses his great grandmother's recipes.
We ate ourselves silly for $15 dollars(US).

Four of us tried various fish dishes and they were all really good. I don't know if the fish was fresh, I saw a lot of frozen fillets being hauled around in plastic bags, but the flavors were terrific. They need to work on their margaritas though - they were really just too sour.
