And the wait staff was just delightful! We have been to Cozumel five times and eaten in many establishments. This is by far the best,quite possibly one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we've had... More

My boyfriend and I very much enjoyed the food here. He had the Mexican prime rib, which was seared on the outdoor grill, and I had the lobster pasta. The grilled bread with chimichurri was delicious. Portion sizes are generous. Our waiter Fernando was excellent.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local man when we were gassing up the jeep. When we found it around 9:00 p.m., we immediately noticed the cool outdoor kitchen and the smell of steaks being grilled. My certified angus ribeye was the best steak I've ever had in Cozumel. My wife had the filet mignon which was also... More

Walk by the wood-fired grill into the smallish restaurant that delivers big... Excellent appetizers & great entrees.. I always get the 400g filet.. They feature beef from Mexico, Argentina & the US Personal service-- not fast food- cooked to order

We have eaten at most of the "recommended" restaurants in Cozumel and Al Pie de Carbon is the one we keep going back to. We have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. The food is cooked over a wood fired grill and is always outstanding and very tasteful! You'd do yourself a dis-service if you skipped going... More

We enjoyed eating here twice, staff was very attentive. Fernando was our waiter both times but he was supported by others and everyone was pleasant and efficient. Fernando was fun because he let us practice our Spanish and laughed right along with us. The food was good - I had a burger both times that was perfect. Both times we... More

Sometimes you just want a good chunk of beef, a fresh salad, and a good baked potato. This is a great place to eat with great service and reasonable prices. 50' away from the Flamingo Hotel where I am staying now. Great little Hotel.

My wife and i just returned from a week on the Island of Cozumel. On a previous trip we found this restaurant by accident, and it was wonderful. So we found it again, and experienced the same great dining. Three return visits in seven days. Great friendly waiter, and wonderful outdoor diner. Will continue to return when ever on the... More

Maybe we just hit them on a bad night, but we ate there on Valentine's Day, and had a truly mediocre experience. The service was fine, the steaks were properly cooked, but the cuts of meat were terrible. Our group consisted of two couples,, three of us ordered the ribeye, and one ordered the new york strip, all usda angus.... More
