If you're looking for a wonderful experience and delicious food you need to visit "La Terraza" in Cozumel Mexico. The owner was there and was very friendly. She couldn't do enough to make us happy and feel welcome!

We stopped in for a snack and a drink. Loved the view of the street below, great atmosphere, friendly service. Calamari was great, another customer recommended we try the icecream (we didn't try it but she was totally sold on it), and the margaritas were generous in large goblets.

Look up for this Northern Italian restaurant that takes full advantage of the delicious seafood fresh in Cozumel.You have to go up a flight of stairs for second floor open air dining. Many may remember this restaurant when it was Prima at this location. Six years ago it became La Terraza with the same chefs, kitchen staff and marvelous waitstaff.... More

We remembered this location from other visits to Cozumel when we really enjoyed the food and ambience of this roof-top restaurant. It has changed ownership and has gone way down hill. The evening we went to this restaurant there was only one other couple in the restaurant -- perhaps that should have been a warning to us. The covered terrace... More

As mentioned... service is excellent - Edwardo the owner met us at the door and sat us personally - gave us the story of he and his wife and the home made food however, the pasta is homemade as well and therefore requires better care when cooking so as not to overcook.... it was pretty mushy and there is way...

Our meal was very well prepared and the service was excellent. This is in the old location of the first La Preza. Not sure on that spelling. We had a fettuccine dish with shrimp and it was very flavorful. The bread was also tasty and each of us had a salad. Reasonable on pricing.

The restaurant is on the open second floor of a building just a block or two from the waterfront and from the plaza. It's very pleasant to sit there and watch the city go by and the lights come on in the evening. We had excellent pasta and seafood and the accompanying vegetables were fresh and nicely prepared. The service... More

A fairly small open air rooftop restaurant offering excellent food. I had fresh lobster linguine and it was superb! The lobster was fresh & I was amazed at how much was included with each plate. Excellent service, modest prices makes this a winner!

I cannot think of anything negative about this place. The food was outstanding! We had fresh homemade raviolis and lobster/fish. Both dishes were incredible! The location is very central, and it is an open air restaurant on the first floor. The owners are delightful and very attentive hosts. Service was outstanding, just like the food!
