We were here to celebrate my wife's open water diving certification and were not disappointed. The lobster here was phenomenal. I am not a big fan of lobster because most of the time it has no taste and has a rubbery consistency. The lobster here was tasty without any additions and it melts in your mouth. The portions are large.... More

We first visited 3 years ago and always talked about returning---FINALLY made it. Omar is the ultimate gracious host and his food is unbelievable. It was a slow Monday evening and we were the only ones there for the entire evening. We were presented with a choice of 4 HUGE lobster tails---one was plenty to share between 2 of us.... More

I cannot imagine even one person writing a good review for their lobster. But it was served to us absolutely plain. It was prepared a la plancha, which means, basically, in a frying pan. It was prepared with no garlic, no flavorings whatsoever, and was served with no salsa and no butter. I had to ask for butter. The salsa... More

We literally stumbled onto this out of the way restaurant while walking home for a day's shopping. An absolute must while in Cozumel!

My son and I ate there and got the 3 roll box to share. The bread didn't seem fresh and most of the meat sits on top of the bread to give the illusion there's more meat than there is. If you're craving a lobster roll, then give them a try, but there is so much good food in Cozumel... More

This is a fantastic little gem of a restaurant in San Miguel! We spent the day in Cozumel and unfortunately, there were 7 cruise ships that day so we went further into the town to escape the cruise crowds for lunch. We came upon a bright red lobster shack and of course my boys were dying to have some lobster... More

Even though it's a little off the beaten path, the lobster tacos made it worthwhile for me. The beer is cold but all they had was Corona. I would return for the lobster tacos and cold beer.

The lobster tacos are very good, and my daughter had the chicken fajitas. The food is good, but the prices are a little high.
