We discovered this place our first time in Cozumel and have never forgotten. The lobster is delicious as are the fresh vegetables and rice. You must try it.

The lobster was really great, although I would recommend picking smaller sized ones for a more tender bite! I was disappointed that we didn't get the potatoes and carrots like last year, but the rice was pretty good.

This place continues to serve excellent Lobster along with drinks and sides. Recently refurbished with new tables and bar. Staff is always friendly. Should be a must visit for every trip to Cozumel.

To celebrate our anniversary while in Cozumel on vacation we decided on a lobster dinner. The Lobster House had great reviews and so we decided to come here. Great decision!! It's located in Playa Azul a short taxi ride from downtown San Miguel. Now be careful here because a relative of the "original" Lobster House opened next door with the... More

We had a great experience while dining here. Candlelit dinner, food (lobster) was great plus they had live music. The singer was awesome, singing some classic rock songs and a few Mexican songs. Really enjoyed ourselves. Will be back for sure.

This place is way to expensive for lobster that we found for 1/4 the price at local markets and grocery stores. One lobster tail was $48....Other restaurants offer great lobster for a lot less as well. Try La Perlita. We got twice the lobster for around $25 than we did at this place

My husband and I ate here Dec/16. The restaurant is quite quaint and quirky. A few tables are outside in lush vegetation setting and some tables are covered with a roof. They take you to a large container fillled with lobster and you pick out which one's you want cooked. It's then sold by weight and your told the price.... More
