Fodor's Expert Review Pancho's Backyard
Marimbas play beside a bubbling fountain in the charming courtyard behind one of Cozumel's best folk-art shops. Though Pancho's is always busy, the waitstaff is patient and helpful. Cruise-ship passengers seeking a taste of Mexico pack the place at lunch; dinner is a bit more serene. The American-style, English menu is geared toward tourists, but regional ingredients like smoky chipotle chile make even the standard steak stand out. Other stars include the cilantro cream soup and shrimp flambéed with tequila.
