Very nice and chill outdoor restaurant with fresh fish served whole and fried. Tortilla chips are possibly the best I've ever had, zero grease. I also tried the ceviche which was ok, fish was a little chewy and shrimp were not deveined so didn't enjoy it that much. Overall great experience and would recommend it for lunch.

My wife and I were first time visitors to Cozumel and our Tours Plaza-Day Tours driver asked us if we wanted lunch.

Best place for fresh fish. Off beaten path, in front of a house! People drive up for food to go, places to sit all outside! Excellent food! Highly recommend for a visit!

This was the best freshest seafood we had all week on the island! The small ceviche was a huge plate, a meal in itself! The shrimp was awesome, so was the fresh fish my husband ordered, Mexican style. Very cool experience - no frills, just great food!

This is a small hole in the wall, no frills type of place where the locals go and now I know why! My husband and I went with our two boys and EVERYTHING was fantastic and so fresh. We had the ceviche for appetizer and I believe it's the best I have ever had anywhere. I had the whole fried... More

Great local fish, if you have never had hogfish give it a try. Everything is good there but try the whole fried fish. You choose your fish, it is served with some vegies and is great. I had the whole fish and sides, they bring you some ceviche, a couple of beers and with tip it is still under $15.... More
