This local restaurant was on the beach. Scenery was stunning and relaxing. Food was very good especially the ceviches and tacos with big helping. Mixed drinks were good and strong. Prices of the food and drinks were cheap. Leftovers were packed by our waitress. Advice, learn a little Spanish to communicate with the staff. This is where the locals go out to eat.

At walking distance from down town, this place was our favorite during our stay. We ate there possibly 5 times. We first just had stopped for a beer since we were walking to downtown on a warm day. We noticed the food while we were at the Bar. At the Bar... Daniella and Blanca The nicest Bar tenders : ) made our drinks, Tamarind Smoothies with rum... careful alcohol is not noticed till too late ..LOL Then we noticed the Light House Beer dispensers!!! wow we had to have them hahaha. then the food... Alejandra and Enedina( Dina ) were super with their service!!!
We sat at the stools the tables and the the lawn chairs during different visits... watch the sunsets and take pics of the light house up north from the restaurant!!!
Acceptable bathroom facilities fresh food a local attended eatery with a great value and variety, please say hello to our friends, we actually met the owner who directly monitors the food and service. WE WILL BE BACK to this one any time we come back to Cozumel!!!
A great Value for your money too.
