We love this place. We have been eating lunch here for 20 years when we tour the windward side of the island. Unfortunately it is slipping into the sea. The currents in the ocean have changed since Hurricane Wilma and the beach and the building is almost gone. We pray each year it will be there when we return. Heard rumors the owner plans to rebuild when the building can no longer be used. We HOPE so. Great food and Great Staff

We stopped in for a late lunch while cruising the coast and ordered guacamole, grilled fish and fish tacos. Everything was delicious and wonderfully prepared. The place looks super basic from the outside but the food was terrific.

I'm so sad that our favorite place in Cozumel is on a major decline. We have had so many great times here in the past. Despite the history (since 2012 see reviews), I can no longer recommend this place. The past great entertainment was gone, the service was fair, the food was still good, but the prices have gone through the roof. This place you used to be packed now hardly anyone was there and the building is in obvious decline. Thanks for the GREAT times Playa Bonita.

This has been our stop in Cozumel every time (9 times). It has gone from being amazing, accommodating, and a good value to overpriced and overrated. There were 11 of us and we requested to sub shrimp for beef on one of their combos - they wanted an extra $10/plate to do that. We will not be back.

My wife had the whole fish (Grouper) and I had the fish fillet (Mahi Mahi) and both were excellent! The restaurant has a great view as well and a fun atmosphere, although it doesn’t look much like a restaurant.
