We were very surprised at the quality and unbelievable view from the restaurant over the Boardwalk of San Miguel, Cozumel . excellent service, great coffee and the perfect way to finish or start your tour of the impressive and well done museum. Worth a trip!!

This a wonderful place to eat. Upstairs of the museum. Lots if seating with an excellent view of the ocean along with a breeze. Ordered shrimp tacos and fried fish balls which were tasty. Everything very clean and was excellent.

We were surprised by the size of the breakfast menu-- over 30 items ranging from the expected (huevos rancheros, omelets, etc) to many specialties. The food was freshly prepared, the juice was fresh-squeezed, and the coffee refills were ample. Plus, you have a great view of the sea from the second floor of the museum. A great way to start...

With an abundance of great restaurants in Cozumel I would not recommend wasting time or money eating here. The food is not very good and the drinks are over-priced - even at the 2 for 1 happy hour.

Primarily, the restaurant is a seafood restaurant. Buy, there is also an impressive variety of meat dishes on the menu as well. We lunched here after a snorkeling tour and were very pleased with the service and quality of the food we were served. Very convenient to the main ferry terminal and shopping we stopped here after touring the museum... More

Only saw this place as walking by the beach - it is above the museum and difficult to establish as a restaurant. Great service , lovely food and fantastic view. Would I go back ? Definitely- probably tomorrow

Everything was delicious! The view was wonderful! And the service was good as well. Don't buy the 9$ deal down stairs (it only includes scrambled eggs). You need to try something different that you can only get in mexico!

My husband and I had dinner at the Restaurante del Museo on November 28th. We could not believe that at 7pm we were the only patrons. We ordered the special Mexican platter. It was a huge amount of delicious food that included steak, chicken, pork chops, enchiladas, taquitos, quesadillas, beans and guacamole. Everything was delicious on the platter, but we... More

We met some new friends and they took us here for breakfast. My husband and I enjoyed our very tasty breakfast with a view. Staff is very friendly, service was great and meal was too. It will definitely be one of our "go to" places for breakfast. Great prices too!
