We have been cruising to Cozumel since the 80's. After our favorite restaurant where we used to go for ceviche closed approximately 10 years ago, we were referred to La Bahia Del Caribe by a local. We were not disappointed at all. It had even better ceviche (we like the mixed one but including the lion fish) and at even... More

This place is a hidden gem. We were told this is fishermen's co-op and we had the best seafood there! It is away from the touristy area and we saw a good mixture of locals and foreigners. They had fresh fish everyday; they were very generous with the potion; everything tasted amazing! It ended up being our favorite restaurant on... More

Very good hole in the wall pescaderia. I only gave it 4 stars because I'm comparing it to another pescaderia. However it's very good and I would go again. It's an easy walk if you're staying in town. With most of these places that are off the beaten path, you're better off, sometimes by as much as 25%, to bring... More

Lion fish. All the way. It's fresh it's amazing and it's well cooked and presented. This place is a 9 out of 10. It's not fancy but this gives it a nice relaxed feeling. Staff is very kind. Yes it's not the cheapest restaurant in Cozumel. But the quality of the food is very high.

We stopped by for lunch. We had tried to get lion fish last year when in Cozumel and struck out. Wow, we really enjoyed it. It was lunchtime and not terribly busy until around the time we left. The staff were pleasant and attentive. Hopefully we can return next year!

We visited this restaurant yesterday for lunch. Like the other reviews say, it's off the main tourist area but perfectly safe to visit and easy to find (5th avenue, down by the cemetery). The staff there are friendly and welcoming, speak a little English so you can navigate. Service was good, food presentation was also very good. We did enjoy... More

It is a wonderful place that is quite local and has very few tourists. The staff is very nice and friendly. We like our fish grilled plain. Most of the local restaurants put a funky oil or butter on their fish that ruins it for us. Baha'i does not. The side salad was also good as was the rice and... More

This place was right near the place we were staying. It looks like someones house from the street, but once you go into the back yard it a full blown restaurant. I got the lion fish tacos, and the were great. should have went here much earlier in our stay.
