Stopped in while waiting out the rain one night. Ended up closing the place down while drinking the night away. Had a blast. The service is good and the staff is friendly. They have a DJ that makes sure the music is always playing. Will definitely be returning.

Visited Cozumel and had lunch here yesterday. Beautiful weather and fabulous spot to sit and eat while watching the boats and people moving about. Fajitas were excellent, beer was lovely and cold and the service could not have been better. Free wi-fi was a bonus.

Great Linch spot from the cruise ship pier. We ordered a few beers, fajitas, chicken quesadilla and some tacos. Wait staff was very friendly Cleanest bathroom on the island! Would go back next time in Cozumel

Wonderful view on the water yet not on the street as it is located on the first floor. Had margaritas and a few snacks. The margaritas was fantastic, rather artisan than industrial, meaning it didn't taste/feel like lemonade. Had quesadillas, pico de gallo, and french fries. All of it was very good. You can't go wrong there.

Off the ship for a stop in Cozumel. Kids were hot. And so my teen was craving a wifi hotspot. And I wanted a beer. This place between the cruise pier and the ferry terminal hit the spot. Not cheap. But much cheaper than wifi on the ship.

Cesare is awesome Place is great and the margaritas top shelf. Go upstairs and enjoy the view, no disappointment here. I'd go again for the fajita and pico!

We visited Cozumel last July 2016, we went out one night to this restaurant/bar with some friends. On the weekends they have live music and the band was very good (rock music). We had some food and it was really good, it's Maxican/Texmex food. The place is in front of the ferry and gets busy around 11:30pm so make sure... More
