Every four years, I bring about 30 Boy Scouts to Cozumel for diving. In July, we will be down for a week of island fun. This forum has always had great suggestions for restaurants for our group. We need places that will accommodate this size of group and be reasonable cost. We look for a different place each night. Thanks in advance for any ideas for feeding a hungry group of teenage divers!

I'd recommend that you connect with the restaurants before showing up for your meal.  Here are some ideas....

 

El Coctelito - on Melgar south end of town

La Choza - on 10 between 3rd and Salas 

La Mission - on 55 (or 55 bis) between Juarez and Calle 1

Las Deliciass - on 30 between Calle 2 and 4

 

You could call Room Service and have them deliver a bunch of pastor pizzas from Los Seras (I don't know that they could accomodate a group of 30 at their location....but the pizzas are great)

Hamburguesas Tio Memo (less for burgers than for tacos)

El Moro

La Conchita del Caribe

La Perlita

Taqueria los Chilangos (which doesn't actually have tacos, but does have huaraches and quesadillas)

 

El Coctelito used to be on 20 Avenida Sur, but it's now on Melgar at the NORTH end of the downtown area, near the airport road.

 

*La* Mission is in the central downtown area on Rosado Salas between 5 Avenida and Melgar, and is probably too small for that group. *Casa* Mission occupies the block between Juarez and Calle 1 Sur and 50 and 55 Avenidas (55 bis would cut right through it), and would accommodate that group. There's also *Parilla* Mission, which is now in the back of the mothership. It usually closes at the end of the afternoon, but would have been a great option in their former location on 30 Avenida and might possibly be available by reservation for a large group. It's less expensive and more casual than Casa Mission.

Finding restaurants that can accomodate that big a group could be tough. Two that spring to mind are Casa Mission, a large old traditional Mexican Hacienda, with lots of space for big groups (though with 30, you might be splint into two or three tables), and El Moro. El Moro can handle quite a large group, though again, you might be split between two or three big tables. Casa Mission is a bit more formal, and a bit pricier. El Moro is very casual, very reasonable, and has a very extensive menu. Send a message to Ray, El Moro's owner, on the Facebook page for El Moro, Ray is very friendly and will work hard to make you happy. You might also try Rolandi's, an italian place on the waterfront - I think they can handle a big group, though 30 is quite a crowd. Rolandi's also has some very good wood fire pizzas, which the boys might really like, plus the traditional Italian fare. Go to the Rolandi's web page and you can print a coupon for a discount.

You might also look into Del Sur Argentine Empanadas, although a group of 30 might take up the whole restaurant. I love Del Sur, and make a meal of several empanadas, both savory and sweet. Three or four Empanadas can make a meal, and they are very reasonable - 19-23 Pesos each, which is less than $1.50 each at current exchange rates. The Del Sur empanada is excellent.

Las Delicias that Pecas mentioned went in where *Parilla* Mission was on 30 btwn 2&4. So far getting good reviews. They could handle 30, I'm sure. But yes, with that big of a group - let those restaurants know you are coming!

Otates might have room for your crowd. Also Los Chilangos on 30th. Both have great prices and good grub.

Catrina on 11 between Ave 20 y 25 is another idea.  Good food and very reasonable prices.

I've been liking La Catrina. Unusually for the island, they have breakfast, lunch, and supper.

 

Just down the road, La Antojeria is good and not expensive for lunch and supper. Their day and night menus are completely different.
