Reviewed January 14, 2013

I recently took a dive trip to Cozumel and stayed at the Blue Angel Hotel. There is a really great restaurant withing a block of the Blue Angel called Tio Jose's. We ordered the special--grouper with garlic sauce--and it was fantastic. I've eaten grouper all over the Caribbean and this was the best!!

Then you've had Tio Jose's....Not much more to say, typical atmosphere and food. Standard menu, typical below average taste. Service was good and staff were friendly. Definitely not worth making a special trip.
