Stopped in for dinner and Cokes on New Years Day. The food wasn't anything special, though there was a nice flavor to the fajita meat.

Stayed in the north hotel zone. Stopped in here on New Year's Eve for happy hour 2x1 drinks. Good band playing. Ordered guacamole appetizer but they forgot. Then asked for a few more chips, again forgot. Across the street views of the sea are nice.

Thought it was a tourist catcher, which in part is, but the food is sooo good. Ceviche is outstanding. Drinks are big and ambiance is very tropical. Would come back again every time I am in Cozumel.

If you want to hang out at a resto bar this could be a good choice, live music good dinner but prices a bit over rated.
