We had dinner here during our stay in Cozumel. To find really good, authentic mexican food in Cozumel is hard. This beautiful island mostly caters to Cruisers and gets pretty quiet at night. So it's really hard to find a good spot (suprisingly most restaurants here get good feedbacks, so it's real work to find a truly good place to eat).
Based on ok feedback and its location we decided to have some dinner here. It's located right on the zocalo. There's artists, food carts and more in the evening. Free live music on weekends. So it's a good spot.
The service was fast and very friendly, no complaints here. We ordered two margaritas. They were pretty sweet and quite warm. Not good.
As a starter we had fried calamari. Not too fresh, but good enough and crispy. As mains we had a whole fried fish and tacos.
The food looked nice...but wasn't. We know good, authentic mexican food from our trip through Mexico. And sadly the food here isn't real mexican or either good.
The fish probably wasn't caught "today" and was fried way too long, so it became chewy. The tacos looked fine, but were extremely bland. No flavors....
This place just has "Tourist Trap" written all over...we went anyway, because of its location, but didn't leave happy. The drinks taste better in "Las Palmeras", also on the Zocalo. And if you want to get some good seafood, you should take a trip (if you have time) to the other side of the island and eat at the "Mezcalito" where you get a beachfront location. For great tacos, head to the Mercado and sit down at the "Taqueria Molina".
