We remembered this location from other visits to Cozumel when we really enjoyed the food and ambience of this roof-top restaurant. It has changed ownership and has gone way down hill.
The evening we went to this restaurant there was only one other couple in the restaurant -- perhaps that should have been a warning to us. The covered terrace area was closed and we were seated overlooking the OXO store -- not very nice ambience.
The waiters were attentive and the service was excellent, but that couldn't make up for a disappointing feeling about the place.
Our appetizer (calamari) was overcooked. Our main course was okay but we thought the meal was way overpriced for the experience.
With so many other choices on the island we would NOT recommend this restaurant unfortunately. If they want to charge high prices, then they need to make some changes and improvements so that the experience and the food are worth the prices they are charging.

Excellent food! Julian was awesome!
Very friendly, gave us great information. The freshness of the food was perfect. It was Italian food in Mexico, and we were pleasantly surprised and happy to have found it. Our Scuba instructor recommended it. We were not disappointed.

As mentioned... service is excellent - Edwardo the owner met us at the door and sat us personally - gave us the story of he and his wife and the home made food however, the pasta is homemade as well and therefore requires better care when cooking so as not to overcook.... it was pretty mushy and there is way too much tarragon (any amount is too much) in the sauce. the Crab stuffed shrimp was excellent, the caprese salad and the Caesar salad were both good but the mains had something to be desired.

Good on you folks but the sauce and pasta need improving.

We could make a meal of the Mixed Salad and the Fried Calamari in their flavorful marinara sauce. But it just so happens that we also come back to share their Chicken Parmigiana, a huge portion. It also happens that this is one of only a few placed to get fresh broiled lobster tail, done in the broiler rather than the typical pounded and fried Mexican style so common.

One of my favorite restaurants on the island. I eat here every time i'm in town and have never had anything less than a great meal/experience. I've been told and have seen the desserts are amazing!!!! The meals are so delicious and large I have yet to find room for dessert ( eventually) 8) My wife loves the lobster specials and I love the steak> The owner (Ed) can usually be found out front greeting guests or upstairs in the restaurant. Also he is very helpful in suggesting dishes depending on your likes ie. seafood, steak, chicken..The chefs are great an more than willing to go the extra mile to make your dish perfecto!! Enjoy!!
