Had dinner at the La Lobsteria based on many reviews on TripAdvisor. Our first impression upon arriving wasn't great as its rather... well... un-assuming. That's par for the course with restaurants in Cozumel, which isn't a bad thing it just is what it is. I guess I was expecting a place that served lobster to be... well... nice. Anyway, we went in and actually had a great meal. The service was attentive, the beer was cold, it was clean and the food was good. A little expensive (in my opinion) for Mexico, with non-lobster entree's costing between $13 -$30 USD. Lobster's ranged from $30 -$100. Not sure why people rave about this place like it's a 5 star restaurant. It's good but based on other reviews I've read you'd think you were going to Cozumel's version of a McCormick & Schmicks Seafood House.
If you have a taste for seafood you'll do just fine. I guess I'm just trying to manage expectations.
The night we went it was also very slow, in fact there was only us and one other table. I don't think this is reflective of the food they offer, its just not a place locals will go and the cruise ships leave the island by 5:00 or 6:00 leaving a small pool of diners left. Bottom line - it's good for what it is, which is a slightly off the beaten path lobster/seafood joint catering to no-locals with OK atmosphere offering mid-priced average to above average food.
