Great Time at ‘Ohana!

This place was a total surprise! We were actually at another place on the edge of the island when Willie the bartender suggested we visit Ohana’s in the city. This was a great recommendation!. Off the beaten path in Cozumel, we were greeted with a warm welcome from the owner Angie (Willie’s sister) and Matt! The served up a wonderful jungle juice, great music, clean... Read More

Best Coconut Shrimp on the Island

As repeaters to Cozumel we are always keen to check out new places and ‘Ohana didn’t disappoint. Great hosts, great food, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The bar is great if you just want to hang out for a few beers or sitting in the garden listening to a good band and we really enjoyed the drum and dance group in the street in the run up to the Carnival.

Don’t Miss It!

Fabulous coconut shrimp and the sauce was to die for! Very clean and well decorated place with room at the bar or tables, inside and out. Friendly staff (bartender can’t be beat!) Great underwater videos and stories of Cozumel history from Matt, the bartender. It’s right downtown and you shouldn’t miss it. We want to go again on a night when they have live music... Read More

Excellent Coconut Shrimp with Entertainment

Off the beaten path of Rafael Melgar but well worth the effort to find it. Great location under theopen air. The specialty of the house is coconut shrimp and the large portion will melt in your mouth. We were there on a Saturday night about 9:00pm and they had a guitarist and singer who were very entertaining, ended up staying way past dinner. The guitarist billed himself as the... Read More

A New Culinary Gem in Cozumel

Two thumbs up for the food and the great laid back atmosphere! nice cool jazzy live... Read More

Great Restaurant Now On My List of Favorites

Matteo runs a fantastic restaurant. Always visiting the customers to make sure everything is perfect. Always willing to share a good dive story. The food was excellent. Had lobster there twice in a weeks time. Very romantic and intimate setting. They have live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Even the musicians come down to talk to you at your tables. Will definitely be back when... Read More

Fantastic New Restaurant in Cozumel

First visit to O’hana Cafe, fantastic place and a must visit for everyone. The ambiance is quaint, the food wonderful, and the staff extremely friendly. We went fishing that day, where we landed a large tuna. We were able to take the filets to the chef at ‘Ohana, where they were professionally and perfectly prepared for a very reasonable price. Each was served with sides... Read More

My New Very Favorite Place to Eat

Who’d a thunk it? This was a world class eating experience. I had the hot wings appetizer, and my wife had chicken nachos. Superior rating on both – the hot wing sauce was to kill for, and Matteo knows it. He wouldn’r divulge the recipe despite my intense pleading. Than came the tuna. I wept. Emotionally good food prepared by a chef, not a cook. Never had any better... Read More

Absolute MUST!

‘Ohana is a wonderful place for a small quiet dinner or a larger group meal. The owners and staff are very personable……they make you feel as if you are creating a memory for them, you are not just another customer. The chef cooked fresh tuna that our group caught that day and brought in to the restaurant. He cooked it in two different ways, added some rice and... Read More
