“One of my favorites”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We love this place. The food is excellent, and the beers are nice and cold. It's very authentic food, reasonable prices, and almost always has nothing but locals eating there, which I love. Definitely not a tourist area.

“A Cozumel Favorite”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

For great food at reasonable prices this place is hard to beat. The pastor is especially good and the service is excellent and friendly. This is not a fancy restaurant but is is clean and good.

“so so”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We did many taco places in cozumel and playa del carmen. El Pique we did as the concuierge recommended it. It was so so. Took forever before our food was on the table. 1 order went completely wrong. And took forever again to replace. Overall we ate for 25usd with the 4 of us. Incl a cerveza.

“Loved it - great local taco spot.”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Very authentic taco place in Cozumel.
We loved it!
We sat in the open-air patio out back (had the place to ourselves) and enjoyed tacos, panquetons (sandwiches) and more. The guacamole was fantastic - some of the best we had in Cozumel. The menu is painted on the walls of the restaurant. Very good selection of tacos and sandwiches.
Wait staff was very nice and very friendly - even brought out a sample of their delicious soup for us to try.
This is how much we loved it:
- After dinner, we each ordered our own panqueton for the next day's lunch.
- We returned three days later (in the middle of a hurricane watch) for another dinner.
Definitely recommend this place if you are visiting Cozumel. Nothing fancy. Just good, authentic food in a very casual spot.

“Typical Authentic Mexican food”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

It's nice to have a little bit of Mexico with all the touristy places in Cozumel. I like to travel out of those areas and I found this little place. Tacos al pastor, queso fundido, guacamole, all fresh, cheap and delicious
