The food here is so good. Best meal we had during our stay on Cozumel. Very popular and busy place. Great margaritas. So nice to see a successful family run business and the owner so genuinely pleased to serve you.

Best margarita I had in Cozumel and the grilled shrimp were delicious and huge. Terrific service and the local ambience is what we were looking for in Cozumel instead of the "tourist" joints. A bit out of the way, but worth it.
