This is a great hideout at the cruiseport. The service is amazing...everyone is so friendly and kind! Margaritas are ginormous and delicious...as it should be. And the food is incredible as well. Do yourself a favor and go with the guacamole to start.

Went there for afternoon drinks with family and friends and they really know how to make Margaritas. One was enough for me. The service was incredible too. The waiter/bar tender was funny without being annoying. Loved the atmosphere and the decor.

We enjoyed a lovely outdoor lunch complete with fresh food and tasty margaritas. Our waiter was very attentive. The drinks were huge and delicious. We had guac and enchilladas verdes. Everything was delicious. Very easy to get to from cruiseships and plenty of tables.

After spending the day doing Cozumel stuff, we decided on a snack before boarding the ship again. Quesadillas and margaritas with a Caribbean view. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Service is friendly, welcoming and professional. Extensive menu. Great atmosphere with live music. They also have a gift shop. No A/C though.

Everything here is made from scratch. Custom requests are welcome. Explain what you need and be very clear if there is an allergy issue. Ask for a manager if you are concerned. They take all customers needs seriously.

Extraordinary Mexican food and awesome Margaritas are served graciously at the lush patio of one of Cozumel's most beautiful colonial buildings, amidst splashing fountains and tasteful decor. When you visit Pancho's Backyard don't forget to bring your camera! Live Marimba music during lunch.
