Traditional Mexican fare served al Fresca. Excellent food. Bring bug spray. I am not the target of mosquitoes, but those who are should plan accordingly for the summer months. There was a cloud of Off in the air.

We have been going to Cozumel for years and this one of our favorite stops. We go here at least 3 times for every trip. It is our go to cheap eats stop! The tacos are always fresh and we enjoy the service. Definitely try to Frijoles especial and their guac. I haven't had a taco there I don't like, most recently I have come to love the Chuleta, but the bistec and pastor are also great! As to my knowledge they are open for dinner only.

In Cozumel it is very very hard to find food that that is not for tourists. When I asked one our guides for the day where he would go with family...El Pique was the response. 20-25 minute walk away from the cruise ships and it felt like a different city. Our group of 7 spoke minimal Spanish and this was the only time during our very touristy cruise that we struggled to make ourselves understood. Menu on the wall. No English in sight , but we muddled through. Very very good tacos...but it was the tortas that stole the show. Great bread. Tasty pork and beef. Washed down with cold beer. Perfect ending to our day on Cozumel.

Our dive master born and raised in Cozumel, gave us a few recommendations. This was on the top of the list. Simple, cheap, local, authentic. Beware though, not a place for vegetarians. Even the beans have meat already mixed in with them.

We went here for dinner.
The food was good but in a back yard the atmosphere with a very poor service, the taste wan't rescue the Impression.
Therefore the bill was cheap.
Think twice before you come here.
