Restaurants with best Steaks in Isla

Last year was my first time in Isla. We all fell in love with her. Food was incredible but none of us ordered a steak to my memory. Been to Cozumel over 20 times and can't say I ever had a great (or decent for that matter) steak there. Any recommendations on Isla?

Los Fueguitos is number 1 IMO with the arrachera at Freddy's a close second.

Los Fueguitos' food porn looks outstanding. Looks like it's on the eastern side of the island from one pick.

Rick - I definitely am planning on eating at Freddy's. The problem is that I know the restaurant is known for their pork chop, but you also recommended the arrachera steak. Which do you recommend?

dcikon2,

Pork chops are their signature dish, but IMO it shold be replaced by the arrachera. Absolutely melt in your mouth tasty.

HTownMan,

Los Fueguitos is right on the Malecom. If you know where Rocamar hotel is, Los Fueguitos is just down the street. Great selection of cuts and the Chimmichurri sauce they serve with the meal is out of this world. You could spread that stuff on an old wet newspaper and it would be the best meal you have all day. (yeah it's that good)

I have to agree with Rick, Los Fueguitos is fabulous.

Los Fueguitos! Yum! Had an amazing meal there not too long ago. If you like your steak rare or medium rare, just STRESS that point with your waiter and they will do it perfectly. Learned my lesson the first time when I wasn't clear but this time it was a perfect medium rare. And the side salad is the best I have ever had on the island!

My local buddies on the island tell me that Los F has the best steak, we were going to get there last week but ran out of time.

I also had a terrific ribeye steak at Basto's Grill in La Gloria. My guess is that Brisas Grill on Medina would have a good steak, although I usually order lobster there. Fredy may have a good steak but I spend 51 weeks of the year waiting for my Fredy's pork chop:

I won't be returning to Fredy's but I have a question about this pork chop. Is this specific type of pork chop rare for people? I've seen photos and it's just thick cut bone in. I don't understand the fascination with this as we eat this all the time but prepared different ways. ?
