Server was personable and clearly authentic Mexican. Chips thick, both hot and "gringo" salsa not hot and I'm a light weight. Cheap, filling, bland. We had the chicken, beef & shrimp fajitas.

We ate here one night on the recommendation of a local. Had a nice dinner for 12 people. Everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere. We sat on the street and had some good people watching. Close to the town square and easy to find.

This place has been here forever, and though it is in a touristy area in Cozumel, it feels old-school, comfortable, and the food is great! Everyone enjoyed their entrees and drinks, and we left without overspending. The shrimp fajitas were delicious as was the black...More
