We had no plans when our Carnival ship ported at Cozumel. Panchos is right in the port area and it looked like a good choice after we had returned from seeing Mayan ruins. It was delish!!! Very clean, the outdoor seating was relaxing, service was great and the food was awesome!! The green enchiladas were amazing. The boys loved their cheese quesadillas. Dessert was amazing- hubby got the coffee flan and I had the fluffy margarita pie. The pie was to die for and light and fluffy. Boys had ice cream served with cookie wafers.
If you are wondering if you should eat here- do it!!

Although there were thousands of people around due to the cruise ships, we got seated quickly and just under the patio overhang. A wonderful place by the water to eat lunch and enjoy some live Mexican music.

The wait team was on their game and delivered the food quickly. It was very good food, hot, and well served. I would eat here again!

It’s okay, the view is awesome and felt very safe since it’s within the confines of the port area (some parts of Cozumel looked a little sketchy. Seeing the Iguana walk through was a treat.

Seriously though, the food is only marginal. I’ve had much better Mexican food in Arizona. I had the fish (Mahi Mahi) and you can tell from the photo it looked like (and tasted like) it came from a frozen patty.

The service here was fantastic! Our waiter was very attentive and checked on us frequently. The food, was wow! I have never had such great guacamole or pico! I had Chicken Fajitas and the rest of the group did a combo platter! We all loved it! Everything was so fresh! And we loved the atmosphere!
