Ix-Kool is a hidden gem in the touristy cruise ship area of San Miguel, serving amazingly delicious Mayan cuisine in a lovely setting. Juan is an attentive and knowledgeable server who steered us toward good menu choices not once but twice. He also treated us...to a special anniversary toast after the meal. The cocktails are also creative and beautiful. A lovely, memorable experience!More

11/10 I would come back to Cozumel just to eat here. Everyone is SO nice and it's some of the best food I've ever had. Highly recommend the mushroom pibil.

The Mayan cooking class was an amazing experience. You get to learn about the traditional techniques and recipes that were performed during that time and the many unique flavors that came from their culture. Definitely should try.

We had the pleasure of enjoying the food and Juan’s service at ix~Kool last night. We were very excited based on the menu and they did not disappoint. The menu is small but exceptional in its quality and taste. This is one of those foody...experiences that should not be missed because you learn about the food and preparation during the meal - both from the server and the big screen TV’s that demonstrate the Mayan history of the food. The cochinita pibil is incredibly tasty (even though underground cooking isn’t practical) and the pipian pork was like nothing we had ever had. You take the meat and make small tacos and then eat the rest as a delicious soup. The prices are very reasonable ($10 per main) and the portions are large. Juan was great - he let us take our time, was attentive, and gave us an education along the way. This place should not be missed.More

The restaurant is amazing! A true Mexican meal. Our server Tiffany was extremely helpful with explaining the menu and picking delicious items. Make sure not to miss the Cochinita Phil Panuchos.

Friendly mention, this restaurant is not authentic and not worth it. Though understood if you prefer to try yourself. But, if you have limited days in town, in my humble opinion, better to try elsewhere.
