“Terrible Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

My wife and I had gone with Cozumel Charters for a fishing trip, great charter service, we caught a bunch of fish and the mate suggested "The Money Bar" for a restaurant to cook the fish we had caught. We got dropped off there, they took the fish to cook and we sat down. We had to wait almost 10 minutes just to get water. We noticed that the other customers in the place were ordering alcohol and getting service, both of us don't drink alcohol. Finally we were able to get a waiter to get us water. After being on the boat for 7 hours we were thirsty. We needed refills and that was again over 10 minutes, with 5 waiters sitting right there at the bar, unbelievable. When the food finally did arrive it was excellent. They cooked our fish perfect. We paid, received change and left the place. I did not leave a tip due to the terrible service. We were across the street and the same waiter who served us came running across the street yelling, "Sir you left me no tip." I told him we had to repeatedly wait for water and that if anyone deserved a tip it was the cook and not you. He then stated that " water was free". I said, "so was the service"....incredible the nerve of this guy. Do yourself a favor and don't go to this place.

“Great location. Terrible food.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

We ordered burritos and a burger. The burritos we presented quite nicely but inside was some concoction of frozen dark meat chicken. One group member ate the "car food" burrito as he dubbed it and got sick. The burger we order was a thawed out frozen pattie that you could buy in the grocery store. Needless to say it was also disgusting.

We talked to the manager about the food and be accused us of lying about it. Overall we were very disappointed we spent so much money here for such terrible food.

“great bar & dining - snorkel tips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

The beer was cold, service ok, fish sand good & view/atmosphere was awesome! They have nice bano's & outdoor rinse off showers. Saw a big halibut-type fish near steps to get in water that dodged feet & changed spot colors, & a baby barracuda on the othe side. We snorkeled as far as could against current, then went out deep & rode current back - man-made fish houses wizzed by. We took out the ChocChoc 3 stop snorkel trip (booked the tour next to the awesome bar with the swings) at The Money Bar. The gal at counter spoke English well, and she was super nice/accomodating. I liked that I didn't have to wear blow up life vest if didn't want it.(could dive down closer). The 1st stop is 15 min so they (&you) can ck equip & see how comfy you are in h2o. 2nd stop is the best for snorkelers, shallow and lower current - you can actually see things. 3rd stop imo should be for divers. You can see corals below (if sunny) and some fish, & we saw a turtle - but they were all WAY too deep and the current was so FAST you couldn't focus on much except for divers bubbles coming up frm bottom. Same out front of bar - Audubon fast type of current and deep, unless you snorkel near shore. If possible, request more time at 2nd stop on trip if really want to see closer coral/fish (still 8-10'). A photographer was part of our crew & he took amazing photos of us in water. It was my b-day and they "christened" me with a sm bottle of beer, sang & joked a lot, I had a blast with the crew!

“We love the Money Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

This is the fourth time we have visited the Money bar, we love it here. This time we brought several friends with us from our Carnival cruise and everyone had a great time. We have also sent others on vacation to visit the money bar and none have been disappointed. This is a great place to relax without being hounded for money.....great food, service and fun!
