I've been coming to this place for 20 years, and have consistently found great food, great service and great prices, right in the heart of the town near the plaza! The outdoor tables make for great people watching, or just a place to rest or get out of the sun. The indoor courtyard is quieter, although we all miss the... More

I'd been on the island for almost a week before I made it here, and was well rewarded with the first dish of pico with actual jalapenos in it. The pork tacos were just as wonderful as I remembered.

Delightful little restaurant with a lot of history right on the main square. Lots of character, very good service. We literally stumbled upon this mainstay in Cozumel when we were wandering around looking for a place to eat. We also learned that Yucatan is way of preparing Mexican food. All six folks at our table enjoyed this place.

Hate to give a poor review but 4 of us ate there and all our meals were way, way too salty. We all ordered something different. I'm not that fussy of an eater but I can say I've never had a meal so salty. After we paid and tipped 20% we discreetly and politely told the waiter - he just... More

My mom had read the reviews of Casa Denis online and wanted to try it. The night we planned to go, we didn't realize it was cash only and no one had an ATM card. Ricky Martin (he called himself) who worked there told us to come back when we had cash and he would give us 4 margaritas for... More

I ordered a grilled fish dish recommended by the waiter. It was pretty awful. There was some ingredient that I could not recognize coating the fish. Two margaritas could not improve the experience.

This restaurant bills itself as the oldest in Cozumel. After eating there I wondered why it was still around. I searched trip advisor to find "the best fish tacos in Cozumel" and this place came up. Not only were they not the best but they were 8th out of the 8 places I tried. Service was not good as I... More

We stopped here last year 2016. Feb 2017 we traveled to Cozumel once more. We had to go to Casa Denis. The service is awesome and the breakfast is great. We were waited on both years by Miguel. Once seeing us this visit he hugged us both and had tears in his eyes when we told him we came back... More

Nice menu with a bit of everything. Some good value and some ok value. Service was good; but not fantastic. I'd defiantly go back. Wasn't disappointed. I think a 4 out of 5 is fair. The interesting part was all of the surrounding restaurants we not busy. In most cases less then 25% full. This place was packed. So close... More
