We really enjoyed this local establishment. The employees do a fine job preserving the ambiance of the bar. I learned while I was there that this place is a local favorite. The openness of the bar and the beachside surroundings along with the surf for your viewing pleasure make it a perfect place to visit.

This is the ultimate beach bar. The views are insane and the beers are super cold. The real reason you stop here is the people. The owner of this establishment and the staff love what they do and love the community they have built in this remote slice of heaven. I was recently in a minor scooter accident on their... More

Great place to visit- IF you want to see the world's grossest restrooms, replete with GENUINE rasta excrement on the walls, and NO toilet seats! Our 3rd stay on Cozumel. We stopped for food in our rented car. My beautiful wife and I were tired of booze when we got there, so after being ignored by our waiter for 20... More

Great little beach bar. Shrimp quesadilla was great Outdoor beach bar. We sat at bar. Some outdoor beach tables. If there was a tour bus, could see they would get swamped, thankfully, we had great service. What more do you need?

This restaurant is a little pricey and cash only but has delicious food and you can sit with your feet in the sand while taking in the beautiful blue ocean.
