Passed by this place when we drove to downtown. My husband and I ate here on our last night in Cozumel. He ordered the shrimp diablo and I got the filet mignon. I'm allergic to shellfish so we couldn't get the seafood platter, it'll be too much food. My husband said the shrimp was delicious and so was the spicy sauce on the side. My filet was cooked perfectly and the gravy was very good too. Our orders came with a side of rice and baked potato. The rice is good, the baked potato is nicely baked, not like it's been sitting in the microwave/oven/warmer a long time. The owner and the waiter are very pleasant and friendly. They said there's live music We will consider going back next time we're on the island.

But very good food and exceptional service. A little pricey, but a nice break from the resort. The seafood sampler is the way to go. Looks like they have a band there on some nights.

We are staying at the Reef Residencias and had seen Gusto,s about 5 km out of San Miguel on the South road. It was never all that busy and we thought we would try it out. We were greeted by a very friendly staff and the owner Alfredo took time to speak with us. He explained the décor of his beautiful restaurant, and recommended the dinner choices. My wife is a very picky eater so she had a fillet mignon that was very good for steak in Mexico. I had seafood Veracruz and it was delicious.I don`t know why this place isn`t busier because for the price and the food it was one of the better places we tried. We are definitely going back.
It is worth the drive from town. or the south side resorts.

This nice new restaurant is 'south' of town in Cozumel on the main road. While not air conditioned it is open and airy but for some might be too hot. It is a good choice is staying outside of town and you dont want the touristy busy- ness. We all had different dishes which we all enjoyed. The seafood platter is for two with lobster, shrimp and white fish was enough to fill us and everything was cooked to perfection. Owners were friend and even let us try the bongos on the 'stage'.There is live music some nights of the week - we missed this though. Reasonably priced and enjoyable.

This relatively new (opened Sept 2012) restaurant located just south of km marker 7, makes it a short taxi ride from the international pier. As can be seen by the photos, the interior is quite nice. We were staying in a nearby condo, so chose take-out a few times. Their lobster bisque (80 pesos/$6.40) was flavourful though I don't understand why there were pieces of imitation crab in the soup. The mixed plate (200pesos/$16.00) was enjoyable and enough for two people. The ribs and accompanying dipping sauce were good, the wings and chilli lime dipping sauce were excellent, as were the manchego cheese quesadillas. The mixed plate also includes sides of guacamole, picco de gallo, and French fries, though rice can be substituted for the fries. Their homemade key lime pie (40 pesos/$3.20) was a surprise treat, though the crust was a little overcooked. If you are having the pie as take out, keep it refrigerated until ready to serve, otherwise it will melt. They offer a $35 steak and lobster full dinner on Thursday and Friday nights with a live mariachi band.
