The food was good, drinks were amazing. I really enjoyed my time. The only thing that ruined my experience was at the end after I paid, the gentleman came back and said tips are optional, but then suggested I leave more of a tip than...what I did. It just really rubbed me the wrong way. I do recommend the food if you are a seafood fanatic though.More

We love this place. Great food and atmosphere. Dinner w a beer in your hand and toes in the sand. We all had the lobster dinners and we had a ceviche appetizer. The sunset is beautiful here and the band is excellent. I’m not sure...if there’s music everyday but we had a great time enjoying the band. Check it out.More

This bar/restaurant is fantastic!! I can’t say enough good things about it. My whole wedding party went there for supper one night during our trip. It was extremely easy to get to as we were staying at Iberostar which is a resort located right next...door. The night was filled with laughter and a lot of joy from all of us, but the best part is the band LSD that plays there. They are amazing at what they do and they are all really nice guys!! I actually ended up playing a few songs on stage with them which was so much fun!! Oh and let’s not forget the amazing food that they serve. When they say “best tail in town” they mean it. Me and my wife had the seafood special which included the best lobster tail I ever had!! A memorable experience I’ll never forget. I’ll definitely be going back on my next visit!! Thank you for a great experience Alberto’s we will definitely be back! 🦞😋More

The waiter (Edson) stole additional tip from us by adding a 5% tip to the credit card charge when we specifically said we were leaving a tip in pesos on the table and did so (16% tip left on 1513 pesos). With the handheld credit...card machine he entered the total on the check (I saw this) and then must have added an additional tip when I wasn't looking. Didn't notice until I was looking at receipt later. So tired of the cheating and stealing in Mexico. This is still common place. The only way to stop this is to write reviews to let others know and hopefully the owners and other staff that are not stealing from customers will stop this common practice.More

Really good food. Great burrito. Shrimp was tasty. We were on a resort all week so this was refreshing. The tacos were tasty as was the food.

We had dinner at Alberto's on our last night of our Cozumel vacation. It was the perfect ending to the week. The area was gorgeous, music was fun, and food and drinks were delicious. I would recommend this restaurant.

Nice seating inside or outside. We got a huge plate of nachos for 12 dollars. Attentive service and clean bathroom. DJ inside due to high winds.

We had to wait a long time for drinks and queso/guacamole. Drinks were not what we ordered, chips stale and queso was a hard ball of don’t know what kind of cheese. They would not take anything off our ticket until I refused to pay....Took off queso and that was it. Had some guy doing jump rope and gymnastics in restaurant and then haggling customers with a tip jar. RebaMore

We are a family of 4, 2 teenage boys, and had a great time! Right on the beach, the food was good, nice big drinks and super friendly staff. We went on a night w live music, and the rock band was awesome! We stayed...so long there were no more taxis and the Manager drove us back to our hotel! They genuinely wanted us to have a great time!

The food was good and the location is nice…but…they changed how much they charged my credit card a day later. My wife and I travel a lot and reserve ourselves to the fact that a night out will usually cost at or more than $100....When I paid at the restaurant my original bill was for $96. Later I checked my credit card statement and an additional $20 was tacked on somehow. No tip on the card, that was handled in cash. I had heard from some other friends to watch closely and should have dealt in cash only. I hope this helps future patrons to use cash. This is a shady business.More
