The food is great, prices reasonable, nice ambience & nice people.
Location: 65 between 15 & 17 on the west side. It's just south of a total white bldg. at teh corner of 15th. There's a green awning/terracota roof supported by black wrought iron, white rope lights, plaid tableclothes & red chairs. There's both indoor & outdoor seating.

This is going to be a bad, sad low season, I'm afraid.
Anyone who cares about Cozumel and is coming down, please do try to eat out as much as your pocketbook allows. Check this forum plus the static restaurant page for places we'd especially hate to see go under.
Owning a restaurant is a risky business in any economy as I understand it. But this huge recession following on the heels of the swine flu scare is making life economically precarious for many right now. Your help is needed if you are able to give it.
Eat Out! NOT at your all inclusive. In fact, if you possibly can, don't stay at an all inclusive. You don't need to here. No need to isolate yourself because of danger. This is an incredibly safe and friendly island and you are really missing out not getting out and about, smiling and rubbing shoulders with a lot of very sweet and hard-working local folks most of whom, by the way, speak at least a little English.
If you're coming on a cruise, consider lunch or dinner in town for a great cultural experience in a much different atmosphere than you'll get on your ship where you're already eating so much you're prolly getting a little tired of it by that stage.
It's also VERY safe here at night. And there are taxis literally everywhere in the cruise pier and tourist area. Very feasible to have lunch OR dinner in town. Treat yourself and help some real nice local folks keep their heads above water at the same time.

On our last trip in March, we tried to get into Kinta for our last night and my birthday dinner, but they were booked solid. So we did what will become a tradition for us: a Progressive Dinner. We went with a friend to as many of the restaurants we could that we hadn't had time to go to earlier, and had empanadas at one place, split a taco platter at another, an appetizer, sashimi, dessert - all at different places, with drinks. I think we hit up six different places or more and had a blast! We walked to all of them, and I didn't feel we over-ate. It was fun to try new places and it didn't cost a lot. Everything was delicious, and we found some new favorites!
We will definitely add Fratellis to our must try list! We will have to start increasing the length of our stays in order to get in all of our favorite restaurants!

The Progressive Dinner might be a nice idea for a big group, for cruisers, or for anyone who has limited time on the island. We will definitely do it again!

I would rather go to Rolandis the food is better and priced decently for the servings.
Danial has been here for 9 years and he was also less than impressed. Again, it was not bad, but certainly nothing to write home about.

However, you must take into account that the venue is simply gorgeous--clean, beautiful, fully functioning AC. They have two young Italian chefs running the kitchen at this point. The food was excellent. My friend had the mushroom rissoto which we could see him stirring up out in the kitchen while we ate our big, delicious salads.Rissoto got a 10 from my Swiss friend who knows her Italian food. I had the gnocchi's in gorgonzola and they were rich and excellent. Tiramisu would have been good if they had kirsh and coffee liquor to soak it with but you can't buy that on the island so it was as good as you can get without those essential ingredients.
This is going on the restaurant page in the expensive category. Same price or possibly cheaper than Guidos. Food just as good if not better. Really beautiful place inside. I'd put this on the special occasions list for locals rec. list and for visitors who are ac customed to dropping $100 bucks for dinner without blinking an eye, this place should be on your list to try.
Is Fratelli's open for lunch?

How about the resturant called Fritz? It is on 10, near the Catholic church in town.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

That's funny...we did the same thing. It was the last night all of our friends were going to be there and we couldn't decide where to have dinner so we hit several of our favorites. Del Sur's empanadas was also one that we hit as well as Camillo's across the street for shrimp tacos, Wet Wendy's for a margarita and not sure from there. Not because of the margarita (: but because that was last December. It's also a good way to say farewell to all of the wonderful people that we have met working at these restaurants.
