First time in cozumel
Posted 01 August 2011 - 03:40 PM
I am going to Cozumel for one day on a Carnival cruise on August 27th. I am professional chef and I am looking forward to exposing my family to new cuisines in Cozumel....However, my brother is a very picky eater (pretty much meat, cheese, and bread)-- Is there anywhere that we can get Yucatecan and he can maybe just get like carne asada plain or something...? I speak a fair amount of Spanish, so I'm sure I can navigate.....
I'm also wondering if anyone knows about where the Carnival ships dock in Cozumel....I'd like to plan a day using all the tips on this site, but I'll need to know where I am starting from....
Is there somewhere I can print a map?

Most restaurants I've been to will prepare whatever you want, so that your brother could order whatever meat he'd like. I agree that many of the best places are only open at night. The one place I can think of that is open breakfast through dinner is La Cocay on Calle 8 between Avenida 10 and 15. Another would be Casa Mission at the corner of Benito Juarez (the cross-island, transversal road that starts behind the downtown plaza) and about Avenida 50 or 55.
Enjoy your day on the island and come back when you can stay for a few days!

Take a look at their menu, I think you will find your brothers some happiness.
Also, a new favorite of mine is Danube Restaurant. http://danubecoz.com/en/index.php
They are directly across the road from the cruise ship pier.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

If you are going to head for the beach instead of town, Alberto's Beach Bar has great seafood. (West side)
Chen Rio (East side) has good food and a great seafood platter.
You won't find any locals at Wet Wendy's (off the Square), but the food and drinks are good. Your brother should find something to like there.
Here's a map of San Miguel that covers most of the town...
Have a great time.

Is there one within walking distance? (since we will need cash to take a cab)

The Sonora grill isn't bad either and Casa Denis serves good authentic Yucatan food at lunchtime as well.

(Sorry, it sounds like my sister talking about me!)
