Love this place! Seafood is spectacular, especially the octopus! Staff is friendly and welcoming! A little off the beaten path, but well worth the effort to take a cab or was the extra blocks for the experience. Great value for a great meal!

Fantastic omelette for me and scrambled eggs and vegetables for my wife. 10 bucks! Food was very good and they have great service. Get away from the waterfront and visit authentic Cozumel!

We loved this restaurant. The service is excellent and the food delicious! We had the red snapper in coconut batter with mango sauce. It was fresh and amazing. Great margaritas too. Lots of charm as well. Loved it

Tuesdays are 1/2 price shrimp. I strongly suggest the coconut milk shrimp, it is wonderful! I love eating in local places.

Several Local Divemasters told us about La Perlita, and it was fantastic. The Seafood Ceviche was fantastic, and the Thai Shrimp was also great. I shoot lionfish and they are great to eat. La Perlita Specializes in Lionfish meals and they have 2:1 on Thursdays.

We ate here on a Thursday, when they had the 2 for 1 special on Lionfish. Go early, before they run out. We had one lionfish as ceviche, and the other grilled. It was great food, and quite the bargain.

LOCATION: La Perlita is very local but worth adding to your list. Parking is easy. It's not far from the airport but some distance from main tourist spots. FOOD: You are greeted with chips, picante and habenaro sauce. NOTE: eat habanero sauce with care as...More

Mark, Sorry, I don't know if the restaurant is dog friendly. But my guess is they might be. As you know, dogs are everywhere in San Miguel! Since you are local, give them a call. (987) 869-8343
