This place was recommended by our hotel manager and I'm SO GLAD he told us about it! We went twice it was so good. It's cheap, it's tasty, and most importantly it's not full of massive tourist groups. We never paid more than £6 each for beers and food together (and we ate a lot!). It's very rough and ready...

We ate here several times throughout our stay here in Cozumel because the food and service were so great! Fast and friendly service at an affordable price! $26 Pesos for a beer and $16 Pesos per taco, El Pique made dining-for-two easy!

We have been traveling to Cozumel for 16 years and every trip we always find a new palce that we have missed every other time, that place was El Pique. Now this place is not for the "all-inclusive" traveler. This is the type of place you eat at if you want to eat like/with the locals. The food was EXCELLENT.... More

Best tacos we've had on the island. Our friend from Cozumel took us there with his family and it was really, REALLY good! Everything was hot, right off the grill and the made to order tortillas were to die for. They had excellent hot sauces that they put on the table. I could eat here every night! Dinner for all...

Best place for tacos in Cozumel. A little off the beaten path about 4 blocks east of the square, but definitely worth the walk. Not fine dining but great inexpensive tacos and cold cervesa in a wonderful local setting. Not to be missed.

Affordable and great-tasting corn-tortilla tacos (pastor, chuleta (pork chop), chorizo were my favorites) plus their "pique gringas" - large flour tortilla tacos with melted cheese and meat. Excellent guac. The frijoles are not just beans - they're more of a soup-stew with beans, cheese and meat. Good place to come after a night dive!

One we found this place for dinner, we just kept going back. The food was excellent and inexpensive. Our regular waiter was awesome...his English was better than our Spanish and he was very attentive. We tried tacos, gringo pique, fajitas (soooo good!) and the guac...all of which were exceptional. This small place doesn't open until 7PM but its a happening... More
