Great food. Great drinks. Great service. Great atmosphere. What else would you possibly want from a restaurant. Pancho's has all of this and at very reasonable prices. We found Pancho's on a whim on our first visit to Cozumel a few years ago after shopping...More

Fantastic food and margaritas. The menu had many options - my son had the beef fajitas and I had the shrimp w orange. It was great quality. I don't like margarita mix or simple syrup in my margaritas - they use fresh lime juice and...More

We have been eating here for over a decade and have no complaints. Order everything, you won't be disappointed. The mole has always been my favorite.

We've eaten here 4 or 5 times. The food is always great and the price is very reasonable. There is also a nice gift shop attached with reasonable prices. And it's air conditioned!

We live to eat at Pancho's Backyard in Cozumel. The food is good, the service is excellent, the price is reasonable. The scenery is beautiful. I highly recommend this place when you live Cozumel.

My husband and I went for a late dinner. Limited dinner menu. My husband had fajitas, I had the tostadas. Both were okay, nothing great. Margaritas were so so. Service was good.

When we went the food was okay and the service was okay. The guy at the bar had 4 or 5 different tables to take care of. The menu was limited on variety and the price was a little steep in my opinion.

Food took longer then usual about 30-45mins to come out and I noticed all tables were waiting as well. Drinks were ok but nothing exciting. They had 1 waiter taking care of 7 or 8 tables which he was struggling to do. Desserts were pretty...More

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.
