For many years this spot has been a favorite of mine on the island! Ok it's kind of two restaurants, a downstairs taqueria open from around 5 PM till maybe midnight and upstairs is the more complete side of Albinos open from around 11AM until early evening. Great tacos, unreal guacamole (probably my favorite ever) tortas and burritos anchor the... More

The best seafood we found in Cozumel and Playa was here. The family is very welcoming and friendly, and always smiling. The food is fantastic and the prices are unbelievable. One of the two places on the Island we would literally fly to Cozumel just to visit!

Just returned from Cozumel and after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor thought we would try this restaurant. What an amazing find-it is off the beaten path but well worth the adventure. Both of us had the Bacon wrapped shrimp and was it delicious(the cheese sauce is to die for). We were the only patrons there that evening and the service... More

Went here on the 3rd night of our recent trip. Found the owner and his family to be excellent hosts. Very gracious, they are truly honored that you chose their restaurant over the many others. The atmosphere under the palapa roof is the perfect place for dinner. Many food choices, though our group of 4 all chose seafood. 2 had... More

If you're looking for that gem off the beaten path, Albinos is the restaurant. My family and I returned repeatedly for the scrumptious food and the quiet atmosphere. I noted while most restaurants we visited didn't care I was trying to remember some Spanish, this family was happy to help. Rather than brushing me off, and chatting at me in... More

Had the whole fish special boquinette wtih garlic. Wife had coconut shrimp. Kids had garlic shrimp and quesadillas. All good, nice relaxed upper level setting. Enjoyed watching the lobster try to escape from the tank. Owner chef came over to ask our experience, totally great we said. And the price was very modest making this a very good overall experience.... More

If you want an evening walk away from the usual tourist restaurants, then I highly recommend heading to Albinos. It is a cute little restaurant serving the usual Mexican food. The waiters speak Spanish, but the cook speaks English and can help you with any dietary requirements you might have. The food is local pricing, and while we were there... More

We enjoyed a quiet lunch in this family owned restaurant off the beaten path. We shared the mixed ceviche which was fresh, delicious and more than enough for two. I had the shrimp wrapped with bacon in cheese and it was fabulous. My other half had the seafood stuffed squid and it was very tasty too. What do they do... More

The fresh whole fried fish is awesome and the huge shrimp wrapped in bacon with queso is to die far. Great atmosphere too. We took a taxi there and walked back to main strip to get taxi back to cruise ship. (About 3 blocks) Hope to go again next week!
