“A+ Again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Indios out did himself this time. Our special anniversary dinner was something new and different that we had never had before, fish tamales! I am not sure if it is on the menu, but it should be. Excellent food and very affordable! See you again soon!

“Didn't See What the Fuss Was About”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We went to Indios based on some comments from here and other places. While the presentation of the two types of chimichangas we got were nice, the food lacked flavor. I had the beef chimis and more than once I bit into a grissley piece of meat that couldn't be eaten.

We visit Cozumel 4-5 times a year and eat all over the island. This place left us less than enthused about going back.

Dear msl500,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our restaurant and to post a review on TripAdvisor. We apologize for your unpleasant experience with your meal. We endeavor to keep the freshest, highest ingredients on-hand and to prepare your food with care, yet recognize that not every dish will be perfect. We invite you to return to our restaurant and sample the same dish or another meal of your choosing (comparably priced) on the house. Also, we offer a variety of homemade salsas at varying levels of spiciness, as personal preferences vary- green salsa, red salsa, habanero sauce, etc, and can prepare sauces to order.

We hope to see you soon!

“Cannot wait to go back!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Fabulous seafood, prepared with skill and lots of love. The mixed seafood grill was so good we went back the next night. Indio prepared octopus ceviche and grilled octopus for my son. It was excellent, and I am not a fan of octopus. The stuffed fish steamed in banana leaves was perfect. Indio was delighted to share the recipe and his technique. The restaurant was relaxed and fun. My son and I were treated as family. I am looking forward to many more meals at Indio's

“This is it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

Indio is the chef and he is truly a master. Casita de Indios is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant apparently still under construction inside. The few outdoor tables are usually packed because fresh fish sells! Tonight I had the special, grilled Tuna fillets!!! Some much food served with rice, lettuce and salsa. Indio said the company's boat just caught 4 kilos of tuna that morning...and it sure tasted like it too. I'm coming here again this week for sure! Great service, free wifi, 2 blocks from the El Cento Plaza and very very affordable!

“Excellent Local Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

This is a very casual restaurant with excellent local food. We had an order of ceviche (huge) as well as an order of tacos al pastor. The latter came with a side of spaghetti (seems a little odd, but we noticed that at other places as well). The meat was very tasty. We also had a 'super empanada' - freshly made and filled with chicken. Definitely more food than 2 people needed! Prices are great. I was glad we were able to get a table outside on the street - it was fairly hot inside the restaurant. Service was friendly and we enjoyed meeting Indio.
