Such great food and the margaritas are yum. Great for families as well as adults out on the town. Casual and inexpensive.

Sounds odd, but after a couple weeks in Mexico I need variety, and the "aligator" diner here reminded me (in a good way) of the cheese steaks I grew up with. Everything we tried was very good, and the new location (last month) is pleasant for this small family spot. My friends have been several times, and I know I will return.

The new location is great. The food is fantastic. Definitely a must when I'm on the island. I would recommend this to anyone looking to experience a true local meal workout the tourist trap feel.

I went to el foco when they were in their old location when it was a little difficult to find.

We found out about this "hole in the wall" through locals on the island.

We walked in and didn't really know what to expect. With graffiti and signatures covering every inch of the walls and being on a back street we were a bit sceptic.

After the tremendous service from the staff and the most amazing Mexican cuisine I have ever had, we went back every single night!!

This was definitely a highlight of our trip!

Martin,.......... Maria and Matteo from Canada just came home from a 3 week holiday in Cozumel and were disappointed to see you closed after heading to your old location for our favorite meal. We asked and everyone said you were going to re-open at some time. Your restaurant is our favorite. Remember Martin,..........you fixed Maria's broken sandal last March? You hung the Canadian flag for us. We will be back again and you will be definitely our first stop. Doesn't get any better. Food, price, and the best friendly service. Martin, hang a sign on your old location telling people to go two blocks south to your new location.
