We had a fantastic lunch at Pancho's Backyard. You can sit in the front part overlooking the ocean or in the back in the garden. Either way is wonderful. Great food, great prices, great service, great margaritas. It was a great lunch.

We were unable to dock near the Puerta Maya Panchos so went to the one in town. It was totally excellent like the other with great ambiance, food entertainment and servers!!! We missed seeing the folks at the other store particularly Marco.

What a wonderful restaurant in Cozumel! Great food, amazing waiters, terrific atmosphere! We eat there every time we visit! While you are there, buy some Vanilla, it is so full of flavor! I always take many bottles home with me for friends and family!

We decided to try this place because it had such good reviews. We were not disappointed. My husband said it was the best fish he's ever eaten and loved the soup. I loved the shopping! Don't miss this one!!
