Concierge.com's insider take:
You don't find a lot of seared ahi on Cozumel menus—or chicken livers, duck pâté, and olive tapenade, for that matter. But such exotic ingredients lure diners with refined palates to this restaurant's new downtown location (the original branch operated for ten years in another nearby building). Chef Margarito Estrella uses his talents much the way the restaurant's namesake firefly flits: a little here, a little there. He serves up good pasta dishes, salads, steaks, seafood—something to suit every craving. The wine list is reasonably priced, and the black-and-white photos from New Orleans, Manhattan, and Cuba on the walls add a sophisticated touch that's rare on the island.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 1 to 11 pm.
