We often order for take out and take this place for granted.Open to the public,but mostly a local hangout.All are welcome.It is located on the Transversal main road to the other side of the island,but not far from the main tourist area.Resonable prices and great seafood dishes of all types.Love the shrimp tacos,and add your favorite mild to extra hot Chile & Spice.Enjoy

Just as their name says, it's the shrimp. Grilled Shrimp and Garlic. We have tried numerous shrimp entrees and have loved them all but this was our favorite. Real nice Mexican feel to this restaurant with friendly staff. They don't have alcohol but we just went down the block and bought a couple of beers to enjoy with our meal as we sat outside and watched the world go by on the busy road in front of us. Loved it!! Good Tacos too.

Stop there twice this Febuary. The shrimp tacos and tartas are awesome. The service is also great and the place is very attractive. They don't serve beer but you can take a soft drink. Don't let this stop you to try this woundefull restaurant.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to the airport to head home. Wish we had found it sooner. Talk about authentic. If you don't know Spanish, you will be guessing at what you get, but the 4 of us we were adventurous and every one of us loved our meal. They don't serve alcohol here, but have tasty lemonade (If you can figure out which beverage says lemonade)

I knew this was one of the places I wanted to hit on our Cozumel trip last week, based on all the TA reviews. And a gas station attendent in Cozumel confirmed that it was worth the effort. I even drove by it once late one afternoon just to make sure I knew where it was. We knew that this little place closed at 3pm, but we got tied up and didn't make it until about 3:10pm. They told me they were closed, but to come on in and they would take care of us. So nice!! It looked like a couple of the staff members weren't so sure about doing it, but those in charge made sure we got taken care of. Excelent fish and shrimp tacos, plus a mixed ceviche tostada. Yummm!! Homemade horchata was geat too! Would go back in a heartbeat (during real operating hours next time!) to try the grilled fish and another freshly made drink. Can't wait!!
