This was our ninth visit to the island and we FINALLY stopped at Casa Denis....again and again and again. Why didn't we stop here before this trip??? The atmosphere is homey and rustic, the service was impeccable, the food is authentic and delicious, and the margaritas are STRONG...hence we came back over five times during our eight day visit this...

Second time to Cozumel, second visit. We walked 3 miles from the cruise port to town to eat there again. Very good, very authentic (as far as I can guess). They do not take credit cards, which might be part of the reason they don't have as much business as some of their nearby competition, and they also don't have... More

Whole table was served except one person, 25 minutes later and after asking repeatedly, the final meal was served. No apologies were given. It took several times asking to get the check as well. Food was only mediocre, there is much better in town, and the mixed drinks are slim on variety and alcohol. Go somewhere else.

If you are looking for an authentic Mexican experience with great food and great service, visit Casa Denis. Sit outside and observe the Cozumeleños as they go to and from work or be serenaded by a maricache band. Martin and Balthazar are 2 of my favorite waiters (they are all wonderful). They greet you like you are family and you... More

Casa Denis Oldest Restaurant in Cozumel. Attention Cruisers! I heard that Cruise Ship operators tell passenger not to leave the main street of Cozumel? Get out and walk the streets of Cozumel. Casa Denis is a small restaurant close to the main square, good food and not expensive. You can sit outside have lunch and people watch. Very relaxing, entertaining,... More

I have eaten here many times while in Cozumel. Casa Denis is a well established restaurant on the square. They have great Mexican food at affordable prices. The service is also excellent.
