When we walked up to this cozy place we were very surprised by the ambiance. Al Pie is located on a quiet side street and was decorated very nicely. The service was excellent, the food even better! If you need a change of pace from standard Cozumel fare definitely come here!

My husband and I lived in Cozumel for 3 years before trying this place. We thought it was all steaks and we don't eat beef. Nearly everything is cooked on an open grill. We finally stopped to look at the menu and since there were seafood items we took some meat loving friends there. We were very pleasantly surprised by how good the food is from the grilled bread to the shrimp, lobster and dorado all with grilled veggies. Our friends were very happy with their steaks, too. The salad was excellent, the drinks were terrific and I loved getting mashed potatoes, which are rare in Cozumel restaurants. The wait staff is always very friendly. The outside can be a little too warm if you are near the grill so beware but the inside is cool and comfortable. We have returned several times since our first visit. The small amount of complimentary lime/tequila sorbet at the end is a nice touch. I would highly recommend this place for excellent grilled food, ambiance and a good selection of wines. Try it, you will be happy you did. All three times we have gone have been memorable.

My wife and I ate here last night and the food, ambience and service were exceptional. Attentive staff without being over-attentive, and the food was really good, made us miss Argentina actually!! We both thought that it was also great value and the next time we come to Cozumel this will be the first port of call for a nice meal and also most probably our last when it's time to leave! Good for an intimate meal or even a larger group of people...

They have a/c inside and outside seating. The food was excellent. The steak melts in your mouth. The staff is friendly and attentive. This will now be one of our regular stops in Cozumel :)

Visited Al Pie de Carbon again last week with 5 friends who had never been there before. Again had great food - steak and lobster and wonderful drinks from the bartender with fashionable glasses (Fernando?). Had a great time and would visit again. My friends enjoyed themselves and commented how it was the best meal they had since arriving in Cozumel.
