Cozumel Trip Report

I did not see much on Cozumel on this board before I left so I thought I'd do a short report on our eats there. We stayed in a condo so only ate out once a day or so. I found drinks to be much more expensive in Cozumel than the rest of Mexico and in general more expensive than what I pay at my local hangout. I'm not sure if this is because of the tourists or because it is an island or both. Our trio decided that in the future that we would stop in a restaurant, have a beer, use the restroom, and look at the menu before we decide if we want to eat there later. In no particular order...

La Mission - Two of us had grouper that was over cooked and dry with cold rice and vegetables. One had a rib eye that was very good, tender, and flavorful.

Kelley's Bar and Grill - Two of us split the daily special. Grouper with peppers, onions, shrimp, and cheese. It was very good and rich. I forget what the third had. Gucamole $6 - one smashed avacado with chips, that's it, no onions, cilantro, jalapeno, tomato, nothing - would not get that again. My guacamole is way better than that was.

Alberto's Beach Bar - Only two went to dinner and we had the seafood platter for two. OMG. Lobster, grouper, shrimp, and conch in garlic butter. I had never eaten conch before except in fritters. What a revelation. So sweet and tender. My new favorite seafood.

Casa Blanca - We ate there twice, dinner first then lunch. The first time it was awesome. Good food and great service. The fish tacos were good and queso con chorizo was a hit. Grouper was also good. Lunch, the food was not as good and neither was the service. Different cook, different waiter, who knows. The bathroom was AWFUL and didn't use it the first time we were there. Dirty, no soap, no paper,etc... If I had used the bathroom at dinner I would not have gone back for lunch.

Abuelo Gerardo - We ate breakfast there. Very good and cheap. The best part, the bathroom was spotless. If I had a few more days in Cozumel I would have gone back there for dinner.

Tako Rock - ROCKED! Four tacos loaded with goodies for $8. So much food I couldn't finish the last one. Would definitely go back there again.
