Heard good and bad things about the restaurant! So, decided to try it out with some friends. Sat outside looking at the ocean, which made the atmosphere good! The service was slow, and we sat for awhile waiting for our soup, after our empanada. Then we went to the salad bar. A lot of the dishes were empty or close to it. Had to wait for plates, twice. The restaurant wasn't that busy. Once the served food started coming they continually ran out. But forgot to bring any more. The shrimp and pork were very good. The beef was either over cooked or rare. The over cooked beef was tough, and the rare beef was barely cooked. Service was slow. Even after we asked for other meats, they were very slow in getting them...overall, very disappointed in the restaurant!!

Absolutely the best restaurant I've ever been to. The service was great, the meat was too good for words.

spent a week and ate breakfast here 4 times. Service was great, clean upscale place. We ordered the bagel classica 4$ comes with fruit and an omlette $8. We shared both and left fully satisfied. Service was friendly and the place was very clean. Escalator up to the second floor you won't be disappointed.

Very average. I cannot say it was great or bad. They fed me supper. They charge separately for every glass of tea you get.

Situated on the second floor with a balcony overlooking the Caribbean this white table cloth restaurant offers casual excellence to the dining scene in Cozumel. Like many restaurants downtown this place caters to the tourist. Everything is in English or Spanish if you prefer and prices are given in dollars. They do convert to Pesos if that is your payment method.

The best thing to order is the Brazilian style buffet. This offers an extensive salad and bread bar that you can use as many times as you want. It offers shrimp and other fish, several types of potatoes and corn dishes. There are regular green leaf salads as well. At the table, each diner is given a green and red card to indicate your preference for receiving the next meat offering. Green for yes and red for no. The meats include chicken wrapped in bacon, fillet mignon wrapped in bacon, grilled shrimp, several types of sausage and steak. Maybe there is more but who can keep track of that much food.

There were seven people in our party and they had no trouble accommodating a group of that size. They had an extensive wine list and we enjoyed both whites and reds with dinner. No room for dessert. Sorry.
