We eat at El Pique multiple times each time we are in Cozumel. The service is great and the food is outstanding. Love everything I've tried but particularly the queso fundido and tacos gringas con queso. An absolute bargain for American travels. It's popular with locals and tourists. The staff is very patient with Americans with minimal Spanish communication skills.

I guess it's good enough since it's for basically for the locals. One example is, as my wife was ordering... More

A total dive by american standards, but don't be scared off by the bright yellow walls and warm dining area. The pastor tacos and guacamole are excellent.

We was told, that they had the best tacos in the world. We ate a lot of tacos across the country from MCDF. This wasn't the best, but neither the worst. Prices are like Cozumel (and rest of east Mexico) higher than the rest of the country. We went there at 6.30 pm, and we was the first customers. I... More

Try the Pique. It is like a taco pizza. Frijoles especial are so good. Great service. Family friendly. Truly a local place.

This is a very local taco restaurant. We are from mexico and we're looking for something we usually eat for dinner when we go out. It's not fancy but really good taste and not expensive. Just a 5-10 min can drive away from the turist zone. It's safe and clean. Gracias El Pique.

Tacos are good some days, bad others. Service during busy hours is beyond awful, had to wait an hour for my food. Completely overrated.

We love you and will always love you. My 2 favorites here are the chuleta (pork) tacos w/cheese and the arrachera tacos w/cheese. I also like that when you get the chuleta they bring out the pork chop bone as an extra treat. We’ve also had the bean soup in the past which is great and if you’ve never tried... More
