Simply one of the best restaurants and locations to enjoy both the food and ambiance in the Caribbean, Cozumel.

Took the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel and back just to eat at Bucannos. Well worth the trip!

Buccanos at Night is beautiful. For those you haven't been lately, they added an addition and the restaurant is now upstairs. They did a beautiful job and it has a beautiful view. The food was good, but not outstanding (as compared to restaurants you might eat at in large U.S. cities, but it was one of the better restaurants we ate at in Cozumel). The waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and the owner and her son are on site to make sure things go smoothly. If you go, I think you will enjoy your visit!

A very nice setting and the food was excellent.
The littlle fires at the beach wall was a nice touch ro thw scenic ambience but tou did smell of wood smoke afterwards.
One complaint is that the wines are overpriced, mark up is srandard but this I find is a little to much.
On the whole we would return.

We spent a week in Cozumel on a family vacation with 4 adult children and one grand child. Our dinner here was, without hesitation, the best meal we had. It was not only the food - which was totally picture posting worthy - but also, the people and the setting... It was so great, we all talked about it over and over. Thanks for a wonderful night!!!

¡Magnífica cocina y atención del Hostes!. El servicio no muy atento y es de pésima imágen y cortesía iniciar el levantamiento de cubiertos y mobiliario de mesas desocupadas antes de la hora del cierre del lugar sólo porque éramos los últimos comensales en la terraza. Ojalá cuiden esos detalles y amplíen su menú que lo siento saturado de Langosta.

Buccanos at Night is a special treat anytime you have the opportunity to dine there. The ambience is incredible as is the food! It’s a must-go whenever we are in Cozumel. The family that owns and runs it are so personable and kind. They pay a lot of attention to making sure your dining experience is a great one. The staff there are very good as well.

We went to Buccanos at Night for the first time to celebrate my 61st birthday. We've eaten outside before but this was the first time at the newly-opened indoor restaurant. We started out with two appetizers. The sashimi was absolutely wonderful and fish panucho was fantastic! We decided to share the snapper entree and were not disappointed. It was plenty for the two of us. We splurged since it was my birthday and had the cinnamon ice cream with cookie crumbles for dessert. The service was wonderful and the food even better. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We had an AMAZING meal at Buccanos. The food was fantastic. Everything was fresh, well seasoned, well portioned and super tasty. The drink specials were creative as was the appetizer special of Guacamole with Mango and adobo crusted fish.

Service was spot on as well. Attentive but not overbearing, they effortlessly took what needed to go and brought what was next/needed without muss or fuss. Very comfortable and fluid dining experience. The owner visited our table at least twice and was invested in our experience. We also saw her in the kitchen actively working with chef and servers to review meals leaving the kitchen.

I had the seafood pasta with tomato cream sauce and my wife had the lobster tacos. Both were superb. The housemade pasta was wonderful as was the homemade bread.

The views are almost unreal they are so picturesque.

The only drawback was that we were too full to try a desert. Good enough reason for us to go back!

Incredible location, very classy place, GREAT Food. An absolute fantastic value for what you get. We had two margaritas, a bottle of nice Rose', 3 appetizers, a main dish and a dessert for $123. The owner/chef is hands on and she is very friendly. You have to see this place to appreciate all the different areas that are decorated beautifully. Our favorite food were the Lobster Pops. The Queen snapper was awesome too. Only complaint was that a few of the grilled octopus tentacles were tough but the rest were awesome. (she didn't charge us for them because of this). She is a perfectionist.

Buccanos is reliably great food. They moved upstairs and you can at inside or on the outside patio. Love their speciality cocktails they are creative and tasty. Service is friendly. Food is outstanding. Great choices of appetizers have almost tried them all. Local catch of the day special is always a great choice.

First time visit for us. We could not have been happier with the experience. We were greeted in the parking lot and escorted upstairs to the dinning area. We chose to eat outdoors and were rewarded with a stellar sunset! Our service was impeccable and the owner described and explained the specials for the evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the pre-dinner Mojito and my wife loved the green apple sangria. My wife ordered the "catch of the day" special and I had the lobster hamburger. We shared and can tell you both "were to die for" quality. Liked it so much that we made another reservation to return a few days later. There are many choices on the island and this in our opinion was worth another visit in our 7 night stay. Excellent!!!
