We go on one week diving trips to Cozumel several times a year. We always dine here at least once if not twice every trip. Fresh and tasty food, fair prices, and an attentive and friendly staff. Cannot ask for a more pleasant dining experience.

Not vegetarian friendly at all and the food is tasteless. Worst pizza of my life, and all of my carnivore friends were disappointed as well. One had chicken, one a steak and one pasta and all of us will never return.
