Went here because I heard it was some of the best food in the city. It was my first time trying Mexican food right out of Mexico and I wasn't very impressed. It was a good atmosphere and okay food but I prefer the Mexican restaurant from my hometown in North Carolina.

We tried Mama Linda based on a recommendation by a local. The staff was friendly, the place was empty and the food was unremarkable.

Mama Linda's Restaurant and Bar is off the beaten path in Cozumel and was the ending spot for the Amazing Cozumel Race our family participated in. I would NEVER have chosen this restaurant or probably never known about it if it weren't for the Amazing Race. All that being said, it was a great place to eat and drink. The... More

This was our last stop and it was nice to have a break before getting on the ship. I do caution you not to use a credit card or debit card here as their internet connection goes down often. Just make sure you have about $40 and you will be fine. The chips and salsa is good, the food is... More

Did the amazing race while on a family cruise and this was the finish line. Great drinks (margarita) and the ceviche was AMAZING!

We finished a cruise excursion here and ate chips and dip, quesadillas and fajitas with drinks. I agree with previous posters that it was overpriced but they didn't mind that we shared two entrees among 4 people which worked out fine. I think cokes were $2 for a tiny glass, no refills. But we could have eaten that salsa/pico all... More

We ate lunch here at the end of our shore excursion. I had fish tacos, which were some of the best I'd had anywhere. My wife and children also very much enjoyed their meals as well. The food was delicious but a little pricier than I was used to from other trips to Mexico. I suppose this is because of... More

My daughter and I participated in The Amazing Race - Cozumel version while on a cruise. The race ended at this restaurant. The chips and salsa were good, the service was excellent.

We participated in an excursion which ended here - we were famished so we decided to have lunch. They provided chips/salsa which were pretty decent. My wife ordered mixed fajitas which she said were delicious. I had a shrimp quesadilla which was also quite tasty. The guacamole was probably my favorite part. Service was prompt and pleasant and the bathrooms... More

We first came across Mama Linda's restaurant in October 2013, while participating in The Amazing Cozumel Race. They serve the Best ceviche! It was a huge serving of fresh and flavorful fish, shrimp and conch. This serving was more than hubby and I could eat! When planning a return trip to Cozumel this month, we knew Mama Linda's was a...
