This place is amazing. The Lobster and steak dinner was absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. Its a 10 minute walk from the Cozumeleno resort but well worth the walk. We actually went back the second time as it was so good.

The setting is local enchanting. The fact that you select the size of your lobster is a big plus. Sea food lobster and shrimp melt in your mouth and vegetables are cooked perfectly. The key lime pie is to die for. The service is friendly and you feel like part of the family. This is a must if you are... More

This is a must do in Cozumel, nothing fancy and you may have to wait, but the steak and lobster dinner is delicious! I have eaten seafood in many other places, but these guys know how to do it perfectly! Cash only, but $36 is reasonable for the quality, enjoy!!

I ordered the $36 steak and lobster she got a 340 gram tail. It's $10us per 100 grams (about 3.5 oz). My steak was about a 8oz, seasoned perfectly, and the tail was a 5 to 6 oz. Both meals included mashed potatoes and veggie mix. Warm bread was served as an appetizer. Split a mini key lime pie for... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice. Looks like a bit of a tiki hut and all soft light with candles etc. on the inside. Was an all round... More

They serve only fresh lobster and shrimp. Simply prepared and delicious! Small family restaurant. Low key and cozy.

We visited Cozumel as a family (husband wife, 2 kids) and went to this place twice in our two weeks. First with friends and other families, then as a couple. Great, simple menu, and you get to pick out your lobster. The steak was actually quite good and exceeded my expectations. We were told that this place should not be... More

The food is extremely good, ask for the soup of the day and the shrimp covered with bacon, and of course the lobster, one of my favorite lobsters from around the world

We had the lobster which was fabulous! My husband had the key lime pie for desert which he couldn't stop talking about for the remainder of our trip! Would highly recommend this restaurant if you like lobster!
