This was a fun stop that was right in port on our cruise. The guacamole and chicken taquitos were delicious, and we also had margaritas, because you just have to at a Mexican restaurant in Mexico. Very pretty restaurant, too. Would definitely go back.

Tucked into the back of a great shop is Panchos backyard. It has a lush patio with lots of shade and fans. The food was very tasty and the guacamole was probably some of the best tasting guacamole I have ever had. Highly recommend!

Go through a store which is massive. The staff made all these comments about my necklace and wedding ring, as well as my bag being heavy with money. Made us completely uncomfortable and feel pretty unsafe. The bar itself is quite pleasant and tranquil, though...More

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.
