You walk into the restaurant (coner of 5th ave & 6th st, a block from the museum) and they have a steam table immediately to your left. If you stand there the chef will come out and show you all the specials for the day,...More

We were referred to La Candela by a local gentleman and it definitely didn't disappoint! The chipotle sauce was so good! And the daily specials were delicious! Will definitely make this a stop on every Cozumel trip!

The first meal we ate in Cozumel and they set a high bar. Ask for the daily specials- a local tipped us off on this. They are dishes made each day, often at lower prices. We had the pork and chicken&potatoes. Both were outstanding. We...More

SUPER inexpensive food, with $20 a plate taste. Outdoor seating is wonderful in the morning...covered patio that's pretty cool temperature. $5 is enough to fill you up with very enjoyable food.

This place is a real gem!. The service is excellent and the food is phenomenal. They have the best mango pie. If you are visiting Cozumel, you must stop and have a "plato del dia", you will not be disappointed. They have options for everyone....More
