“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! Best Fish Dish I've Ever Had”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I cannot say how amazing the food is at this restaurant at night. I had a Mahi Mahi dish and I am still dreaming about it having been back in the States for awhile. They transform the restaurant at night into an oasis of fine dining and the service is impeccable. Absolutely going to go back. It is only a short cab ride from the main part of town but completely worth it. Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this place when you are in Cozumel. We were down with a bunch of people and knew several of the locals who took us around to the best spots. This one took the cake by a long shot.

“Strage location, but excellent food”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Adjacent to a largely-abandoned hotel (once the snazziest place on this island), but the restaurant itself is lovely and right on the beach (which has some very good snorkeling, if you make an afternoon of it). We had dinner, which is only served on Friday and Saturday evenings, and it was delicious and innovative. A short stroll on the beach if you're staying at the Playa Azul.

“One of the best on the Island!”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Fine dining at its best on the beach. By day, it's a beach club for cruise ship stops but on Friday and Saturday nights it transforms to elegant seaside locale. Chef Inez adds a personal touch by greeting you and sharing here specials of the night. Extensive drink,food and desserts. Shrimp tostadas was the favorite appetizer. Encrusted ahi tuna was perfectly cooked. All the portions were huge and for a fresh lobster the cost was $24USD. Having a little touch of indigestion, I requested a plain pasta with a little butter sauce which was specially prepared to accommodate me. Chef even brought a coke with a heavy dose of lime juice...an island remedy, she said. 2 drinks and dinner for 2 was under $70. I would have paid that easily for the view and lanterns!

“Only the Best”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Elegant first class dining, under torches, seaside. We both had lobster tail poached in cilantro infused butter (I think) for the main course. The gourmet panuchos to start, and a three chocolate mousse to finish. Anne greets you like family, I wish I could remember our server, but he was great. Ines always comes by to see how things are. Always a dinner to remember.

We went here our last night and it was a wonderful experience! We started out with drinks, mango mojito and mango coconut daiquiri-both were excellent! Then the appetizer, garlic shrimp, and lobster macaroni and "catch of the day" for the main course. Food was excellent, very high quality. Ambiance was impeccable! A bit out of the way, but well worth it-it was a wonderful experience. We thought that the one con was that they were slow to bring the check-we had to ask a couple of times. I would have loved to stay and relax longer, but we had a cab that was waiting for us. Wonderful, wonderful restaurant though.
