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.

Great place to watch a sports game. We came here to watch the Panama vs. Mexico soccer game last night I thought I would hate coming to one of these places since it's right across the pier, in fear it's a tourist trap and the foods gross and expensive.

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.

If you are looking for a great place to eat and enjoy a beautiful view, this is the restaurant for you! Scrumptious seafood dishes, excellent customer service and friendly family atmosphere. You can't go wrong at this wonderful restaurant. If you travel to Cozumel you must go and eat at El Coctelito!

We stopped by one day in the afternoon. Husband and I were exhausted after our snorkeling tour and decided to take a look... What a decision! We were pampered from beginning to end by everyone. Try the "micheladas" they are awesome! A shout out to the staff!

Forget Jimmy Buffet's - this is the place to get a tasty frozen margarita in lots of amazing flavors. Plus happy hour 2x1 from 5p-7p. Ocean view seating - what more do you need?

We were there on a Sunday night (Sundays are "dead" in San Miguel since no cruises come ashore and the locals close lots of shops). Open air with a limited menu. Probably a better lunch choice than dinner.
