My family had a wonderful time at Casa Dennis. They quickly set up tables on the sidewalk for a group of eight. In the middle of dinner it started to rain. We were not under the awning, so the waiters picked up the tables and move the entire party inside. The food was wonderful, especially the Mayan Pork. And the... More

Casa Denis is one of my favorite restaurants on Earth. If you like authentic Yucatan style Mexican food as much as I do, this place is Mecca. The Cochinita Pibil is spot-on perfect. So delicious with the contrast between the slightly sweet and savory sauce and the accent of the pickled onion. The other dishes are delicious too and the... More

I was here several years ago and the place was fantastic. Now the food was just average. Service was efficient but the waiter was just too friendly.

We had lunch here while on the island for spring break. Didn't think it was anything all that special. What are we missing?

If you are looking for authentic Yucatán food this is this the place to visit! I mean it's the oldest restaurant on the island, open since 1945.!!! Crazy cool right??!! I'm not sure if the little shop in the back part of the restaurant is also the restaurant or if that's the portion that the owners wife runs, but that's... More

During our stay in Cozumel we went to this restaurant two nights in a row it was so good! They offer your first margarita free (with generous amounts of tequila) and they have great prices on all menu items. The tortilla soup is amazing as well as the chicken fajitas! Also, it is right near the main square so it's... More

I visit Cozumel every year and Casa Denis is always on my list. The restaurant is one of the oldest on the island, still run by the same family. The food is great traditional Mexican, The service is top notch. Balthazar and Martin are awesome, funny and entertaining.

This place is a must in your trip to CoZumel. I recommend ordering sopa de lima( lime soup), tacos de cochinita (pork tacos) and the grilled shrimp. I never had dessert there we go to the ice cream shop across the street is the best! Please order the coconut ice cream! Enjoy!! IMPORTANT: they only accept cash!!
