This is a small restaurant in the public square across from the ferry to Playa. Everything I’ve ever had to eat here has been wonderful. Food, drinks for two $28. You will not go wrong here. Hey won’t badger you to look at their menu...More

I'm astonished at the high rating this place gets? First of all the portions are tiny, the food is less than flavorful and it is no value. 3 strikes, you're out. We ordered two appetizers (jalapeno poppers and guacamole), 2 taco dishes (Yucatan style and...More

For authentic Mexican food is Cozumel, try Casa Denis right off the Plaza. Everyone told us about it and it lived up to its reputation. Food was great but service by our waiter Balizar was even better.

Server was personable and clearly authentic Mexican. Chips thick, both hot and "gringo" salsa not hot and I'm a light weight. Cheap, filling, bland. We had the chicken, beef & shrimp fajitas.

We love Cafe Dennis as a place to relax and get a simple meal for a good price. Located right in the middle of the action, you can relax with a plate of tacos and a couple of beers for very little money.

Stopped in for lunch before heading out to snorkel. Chose it because it didn't look as tourist trappy as the other places around the square. It was excellent. The bean enchalidito was memorable. The meat eaters in our group raved about the pork. Service was...More
