Amazing! The food is exquisite. You could tell that the management handpicked all items that were displayed on the menu with care and refined palate. The best food we had on vacation. And the service is quick, courteous and fast. Must eat place!

Tamarind margueritas are the best that i had in years. Good selection of Mexican food. Excellent service. Enjoyable live Mexican music. Average price in comparison to similar restaurant in the area.

Just what we wanted our first night back in Cancun. Good, fresh, standard Mexican fare with a large strong marguerita!

Best restaurant for authentic, perfectly prepared food. Brunch is amazing and only on Sunday. Worth the visit. Dinner is always an event. Staff is helpful and attentive and makes us feel we are the most important family in Cancun.

Wow... waiters suggestions were delicious. Service and ambiance amazing. Mexican caballeros singing and playing music while roaming around the restaurant. Usually not my thing, but very charming and talented and therefore enjoyable. The only disappointment was desserts, they were cold... creme brulée, crepes - usually not cold. My son had chocolate mousse, was almost frozen. Cappucinos were delish!! I would... More

The place to go if you want to try a Mexican experience! Mariachis playing tradicional music while you taste the lovely (and hearty) food is fun for the whole family! Went, liked and came back!

The food was great. Entertainment was also very enjoyable. We had fajitas. Chips and guacamole. Ribeye and baked potatoe. And cheese enchiladas. Overall the atmosphere was great. Also a magician entertaining for the teenagers.

Our first night in Cancun, we ate the "Chinese" buffet in our all inclusive hotel. It sucked. She wanted real Mexican food tonight, and El Mortero delivered. Tortilla soup was our only starter. It was served hot and perfect. I had a filet perfect rare as ordered. The sauce served on the steak was outstanding, a Demi glaze I believe.... More

This restaurant had everything you'd expect in tourist Mexican restaurant. Mariachi band? Check! (but they were actually really good). Margaritas as big as your head? Check! Standard Mexican fare with nothing too creative or spicy? Check! Not cheese laden like the typical TexMex, and you can ask for some spicy sauce too kick up the spice, but do not judge... More
