Great little restaurant for ceviche , octopus, shrimps and all kind of beach food. It's very local and super casual but the food is amazing. Well served plates. But the waiters are a little slow.
Great place to go

The best two meals we have had whilst in Cozumel have been in this restaurant. Great value and great tasting, lobster tail was fantastic and half the price if beach front restaurants, prawns in bacon with cheese and coconut prawns with mango salsa are to die for

Just go

This restaurant is new having opened since our 2012 trip to Cozumel. It is outside the commercial area and targets both locals and tourists which is reflected in the prices which are a little lower than downtown. The menu is made up of fish filet served about six ways, the same for shrimp plus fish fajitas with a nod to the carnivores with beef fajitas available. There is a selection of seafood based appetisers and a range of desserts if you are still hungry.

The staff are pleasant and prompt and the meal was what we wanted. The restaurant is on Ave 20 just south of Corpus Christi church so you can take a look at the church and then walk two mins down the avenue to the restaurant. if you need a taxi home, they will call one.

Unusually, there is a small play area for 2-7 year old inside the restaurant. The restaurant is open seven days a week.

We had hired a private driver to take us around Cozumel while we were there as a stop on our cruise, I had requested our driver take us to a restaurant for good fish tacos and El Coctelito was the restaurant is where he took us. Loved the look as soon as we pulled up, it looked much like most of the Mexican restaurants we have eaten at over the years. There were 4 in our party 3 of which orders fajitas and all 3 agree they were some of the best they had ever had, I of course had the fish tacos, and they were excellent. The fish was flavourful, the taco shells were fresh and the sauce they have to pour on top was really good, not sure what it was but it was good. A must try if you have the opportunity.
