We ate here twice on our 12 day dive vacation. Not the cheapest place but reasonable and the food was very good. Drinks were amazing! The grilled fish dinner was excellent and my husband had the lobster one night. They actually bring the lobster out in three sizes and they tell you the prices of each one so you can... More

I love this place and could easily see myself hanging out here if we ever lived here. We had Carlos as our server on our first visit and Al as our server on our second visit. Not chintzy on the alcohol and that makes a big difference in the taste of the drink not to mention, the buzz. LOL.

Fun little corner bar with constant activity. Waitstaff is very pleasant. Fun drinks. Seems like they always have live music.

Nice corner open bar in downtown Cozumel. We stopped for a beer during a shopping trip. (All of their glassware is made from recycled bottles and is beautiful) We were waited on by Carlos and Alvaro and could not have had a better time. Not only were they friendly but very knowledgeable about Cozumel and Mexico in general. The service... More

Had a round of drinks on Valentine's Day before heading to dinner reservation. When we received our credit card slip, Manuel had charged us in USD rather than pesos. Given that the exchange rate was substantially lower at the restaurant than any place else, it upped what should've been a $38 dollar bill to $50. When we asked for him... More

Everytime we are in Cozumel this place is a must. I always get the chicken nachos, and my wife gets the ceviche both are very good. The real reason to check this place out is the margaritas... they are HUGE, fresh, and extremely tasty.

This is our "Pete's" - a great place to have a night cap or spend the evening with the staff of The Thirsty Cougar who know how to make drinks and have fun! Pamela, Tanya, and Christian are most generous with their time and make you feel at home. The special Peanut Butter Slide is outstanding and will bring on... More
