Been here in the past. Food was very good. I ordered the whole fish with garlic and butter and wife had chicken tacos and couple of drinks. Service was good, very attentive. Reason I gave it a poor rating is because we were seated next...More

Had lunch and drinks here on a trip to the East side. The place has a really funky feel to it and it was fantastic. Great food, cold drinks and the view is amazing. Ask them to show you the extra large margarita glass. It's...More

We went to Playa Bonita while our kids surfed. To be honest, the place looks rough. It took a beating from hurricane Wilma and now is not much more than a shack on a hillside overlooking a bay. There is literally nothing else around so...More

We love this place. We have been eating lunch here for 20 years when we tour the windward side of the island. Unfortunately it is slipping into the sea. The currents in the ocean have changed since Hurricane Wilma and the beach and the building...More

We stopped in for a late lunch while cruising the coast and ordered guacamole, grilled fish and fish tacos. Everything was delicious and wonderfully prepared. The place looks super basic from the outside but the food was terrific.

I'm so sad that our favorite place in Cozumel is on a major decline. We have had so many great times here in the past. Despite the history (since 2012 see reviews), I can no longer recommend this place. The past great entertainment was gone,...More

This has been our stop in Cozumel every time (9 times). It has gone from being amazing, accommodating, and a good value to overpriced and overrated. There were 11 of us and we requested to sub shrimp for beef on one of their combos -...More

My wife had the whole fish (Grouper) and I had the fish fillet (Mahi Mahi) and both were excellent! The restaurant has a great view as well and a fun atmosphere, although it doesn’t look much like a restaurant.

Gorgeous location! Down the road from Coconuts Bar, and they accept credit cards as payment. My husband and I had the best fish tacos. As a surprise, they gave us a shot of tequila on the house. Our waiter was friendly and could speak English....More
