Cozumel has a thousand places to eat with a lot of great food. It's hard to get excited about taste when almost every place you go has something special and good but Diego's has more to offer. His food is great but he and his family offer an eating experience you cherish long after your departure. Your meal is a family affair. You probably stop there because he is the closest eating spot near the airport and you can catch a cab for a quarter of the price of transportation from the airport but you fall in love with his family and food while waiting. My wife and are cyclist and spend the winters in Cozumel and weekly we go there for lunch or dinner. Diego will also cook a lobster or grouper dinner by candle light under the stars for you on request which we also do whenever friend from the states visit. You would be happy to hear his fee with everything include is usually around $15 per head. Restroom facilities are a bit rustic but that has a tendency to add to the adventure along with the whole dinning experience. Diego's English is good enough to express his stories of Cozumel and the history of the area for those interested while waiting for your food and naturally he knows everything of interest on the island. Do yourself a favor and stop by Diego's. His restaurant is under the blue tarp right outside the airport and you will never regret your experience nor the money you might save on cabs from the airport.

My hubby and I combed through trip advisor looking for the perfect spot to stop and have a authentic Mexican meal. We found Diego's and were very happy we did! Diego greeted us as soon as we walked in making us feel extremely welcomed! He served me up a couple of fantastic margaritas and fanta for hubby since he was driving! We had chicken fajitas and fish tacos, quacamole and beans and let me say it was fresh, tasty and overall awesome! Great value... Great food! We had a great chat with him about Cozumel and his business! His wife was lovely and served us with a huge smile! Highly recommend for a very enjoyable meal! We'll be back!!!

Well worth the hike for a visit. Diego his wife and daughters were very friendly. It was like being in their home. He even brought out samples of chorizo and pig stomach, something fun to try. We had mojitos and a variety of wonderful tacos. They also brought out a piping hot batch of freshly fried tortilla chips that my father could not stop eating.

I visited Diego's tacos for a light, cheap dinner with my husband. Diego and his wife were extremely friendly and greeted us the as soon as we walked in. After pointing out the menu to us, Diego let us know that if we wanted anything off menu to just ask and he would try to make it. We ended up splitting a burrito. I was worried it wouldn't be enough food, but Diego brought us out two free bowls of charro beans in addition to the burrito, guacamole, and black beans we ordered. The food was delicious, and well worth the price. We'll definitely be returning.
