My wife and I spent the last week diving in Cozumel. Costa Brava became our favorite place for dinner in the city. The restaurant is owned and operated by two sisters, Alma and Rosanna. They treat every customer like family. But that's just the icing on the cake. The food, the atmosphere and the prices are superb. If you order... More

Cozumel was the last stop on our recent cruise. Having been there many times before we were content to wander around downtown. We went to Costa Brava for lunch at the recommendation of a shop owner and are so glad we took his advice! Great service, fun and authentic atmosphere, delicious mango margaritas and some of the best Mexican food... More

What a hidden gem a few paces off the main street. The waitress suggested the mexican plate for two. We also ordered the seafood platter for two. There were four of us & we had plenty of leftovers. This could've easily fed 6-7 people. The food was awesome & the service was, too. Definitely on our favorites list.

We stayed at casa mexicana and this place is right behind it. The food was really good and inexpensive. Try the combo if you have 3 or 4 people.

Looking for quality breakfast at a very reasonable price with great coffee? Checkmark. There are 3 specials before 9:30 a.m. Good choice for singles, couples, groups and especially families. Easy walkability, located just to the south of the plaza.

I have never been inspired to eat somewhere before just because the Tripadvisor reviews were so insanely polarized but I did with this place. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was good and they had some hot salsas that were a good kick in the pants. My one objection was that they drop the chips and salsa at... More
