The restaurant was recommended as the best place to eat ceviche on Christmas Day in Cozumel by Carlos at the Grand Park Royal and we were not at all disappointed. The margaritas were so good and the chips and salsa were superb, but the Conch ceviche was outstanding and so much. I want to have every Christmas meal here as... More

The restaurant we aimed for was closed. Our taxi driver recommended this place. Neighborhood feel, not touristy. Several blocks off the tourist trail. The food was very good, the lobster special was a really good deal. Tasted great!

Divey type place but EXCELLENT food. Had the seafood sea bass filet. Beer was cold, food good. Always from the cruise ship, tourist crowd unless they had heard about it. Cabs stated there to rake you back to town!

This restaurant was a real surprise, my 7th trip to Cozumel and I must say this is my favorite restaurant on Cozumel, my first time eating Lion Fish and it was delicious. Also, the margaritas were very good!

Everything I have tried here has been outstanding. I especially enjoyed the lobster with garlic butter and the red snapper was to die for. How good was it? So good I ended up going to this place three times for dinner on a seven night vacation. Enough said. Don't let the fact it is a bit off the beaten path... More

Went to here for dinner around 6:30pm. Maybe one needs to show up earlier but they had only 1 kind of fresh fish left and options were then pre-frozen fish fillets. Everyone seems to rave about this place but it couldn't compare to the seafood and variety at El Moro or the freshness at Pescadaria San Carlos. Seemed quite pricey... More

We have been going to La Perlita for seafood for years, and have never been disappointed. We visited twice on our last trip, and it is just as good as ever. On the first visit we were told the snapper was fresh off the boat, and split a whole fish: it was as good as any fish either of us... More

We were immediately seated and offered drinks And chips+salsa (complimentary). Than, we followed a server's recommendation for the grilled seafood (family plate) -it was wonderful. Great selection which included octopus, shrimps, calamari, fish accompanied with fresh and el dante vegetables and rice. It was the best seafood we had in Mexico so far: fresh and perfectly cooked. Not sure why,... More

This restaurant came highly recommended from our dive masters and we were so glad we found it that we went there twice during our vacation. Great seafood and great service made this a perfect experience! We will definitely come back here in the future! Try the Lionfish, you will not be disappointed!

You need to take a taxi to and from this restaurant as it's located in a non tourist area. The restaurant is quite quaint and rustic. The food is delicious. Prices are very reasonable for fresh seafood. Portion sizes are adequate and the beer is ice cold. Lots of locals eat here. Ask how hot the salsa and dip are... More
