“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

My friend and I visited Cozumel in March 2014. We stayed at an Inn around the corner from El Coctelito and frequented this restaurant on several occasions throughout our stay.
The atmosphere is very airy, casual and inviting - to both locals and tourists. The menu items are fresh, appetizing and very filling. Drinks are also delicious and prepared-to-order.
The staff took the time to get to know us and greeted us as if we were family even on our second visit.
We stopped in for dinner, drinks and sometimes as a refreshing end to a wonderful day in Cozumel. We were never disappointed.
Don't be a stranger to El Coctelito but get there early, as they close around 7:30 p.m. Enjoy!!!

“Seafood Heaven!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

This is a very good restaurant in Corpus Christy. The food is fresh and the service is outstanding. You will most likely find locals enjoying the food here. The seafood soup is outstanding and if you have a large group, do not hesitate to order the large family platter. I know the food is fresh because I saw a friend's cousin come in with the catch of the day..... I keep returning to this great place!

“So Good!”
Reviewed 5 February 2014

I concur with the other comments... tucked away gem, the Real Mexico.

This was a challenge to find. Locals were there too, which is a good sign.

They had this seafood soup which is their specialty. I think I talked about that soup for hours, no days. It was so delicious! It had seafood "parts" in it, a crab leg, an octopus part and shrimp. The menu said it also had jam but figured out they meant ham.

I had ceviche which was also good but not as fabulous as this soup.

They have this cute little play area for the little ones that the local ninos seemed to love and it was fun to be part of the neighborhood.

“Locals recommend but not so good”
Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

We don't like fried food and I think this is what they specialize in. Our grilled fresh fish had a weird taste. Maybe it was the oil they used, but it definitely detracted from the fish. For $42 we had two fish entrees, guac, and a few drinks. You can get the same food at the best places here for 10 more.

“tucked-away gem”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Here's a restaurant tucked away on the south side of the city. A member of our Playa Azul Hotel wait-staff recommended it to us. It's open 12-8 daily and serves mainly sea food. The drinks, especially the hand-shaken margarita's were excellent, as were our entree's. We highly recommend this spot.
