Emytito was charming place with great mexican food. This place just melt our hearts and staff was very friendly. O
Please note, that Emytito doesn't serv any alcohol (maybe there is a reason for that?) but they DO serve great agua fresca's.

This year we rented a house that was just a few blocks from Emytitos, otherwise we may not have ever ventured out to try it. It is definitely worth the trip. The food was delicious, probably some of the best I had on the island. We tried the molcajete and savored every last bite. The atmosphere is super cool, you can even eat on a bus. Put this on your list of places to visit.

AMAZING! Best restaurant in Cozumel! You won't find alcohol or nachos here. Instead, they serve an exquisite, decadent, unique menu that is yet full of Mexican flavors. Try the sweet empanadas - blew my mind. For main course share a "molcajete" - truly enough for two people - it is a traditional mortar filled with chargrilled tomato salsa mixed with cheese and then filled with meat or shrimp (or both) as well as whole young onions, pineapple, and nopal, also all grilled. I've never seen anything similar, and it is festive and delicious. Emytito also has an entire dessert counter, so definitely leave room - they are heavenly. We were the only tourists, but the restaurant was filled with local families, dressed up for a special outing. I recommend you dress a little nicer for this restaurant, as it is truly a special place deserving of respect.

We stumbled across this very unique concept and really enjoyed the experience. The owner opened the restaurant in memory of his two (2) grandchildren that he lost in an auto accident! The deoor has many photos and memories of his family and is fantastic, unique and very bright and fun! You can sit indoors or outside (or even go into the courtyard and be served inside a bus - so FUN) and have a great time! The food was very affordable and you receive very nice portions! Everything was fresh and so good! All the staff is so friendly! It is a very large restaurant and seems extremely popular with the locals. Should be a great spot for large parties and special occasions! We will be back...
