Good eats Great view

Have eaten here a couple times before . the pico and chips are great but the hot sauce is HOT, so use sparingly. Right on the beach at the pier.

Hit this place after a $375 peso for two snorkel on the reef. Great fajitas and pico with chips. Would eat there again for sure. Great view as well. Like the fact you can look into the kitchen. Seemed like a great place to come and chill after a snorkel or fishing charter.

Been here several times over the past 10 years. Love the laid back porch dining and the food is perfect Mexican local flavors. My favorite is the sautéed lion fish with garlic. MMMMMM!

PM has lots of street restaurants, restaurants where the tables are actually in the street! Pelicano's has traditional fare, as well as good seafood, and one of the nicest locations, and views in PM.

Right on the beach with a clean sandy waterfront, this restaurant was the first one we visited and found ourselves going back again & again! Great service, good prices and a Cuban Sandwich to die for!

Right on the beach! You can sit on the patio and watch all the boats and fishermen come in. Watch kids play on the beach. So refreshing and relaxing. We had dinner and breakfast there. Our party got mostly seafood -- very good, fresh. Very good guacamole. Service is good but not stellar. One drawback is they allow the beach... More

Conveniately located off the town square in Puerto Morales, Pelicano's offers a lovely outdoor terrace with sea views and more importantly sea breezes. A casual, local eatery offers an array of well prepared fresh seafood dishes along with traditional Mexican fare at reasonable prices. The service is prompt and efficient and any requests are met with a smile. We were... More

Stopped here for dinner on our way down the coast to our lodging after arriving at Cancun International. Not too far of a drive, low key town center, beachfront, good food.

Everything we got was really good here and the view was wonderful as they are right on the beach with their own pier. Whereas some other restaurants had more intensive and varieties of flavors, this restaurant tends to be centered on the tourists with the limited/"typical" flavors. That said, it's still good and we ate here three times! Waiters speak... More

Upon arrival in Puerto Morelos, for my first dinner I chose to go to this restaurant mainly because a woman at the Cancun Airport recommended this establishment. I should have consulted Trip Advisor but I was tired and just wanted a nice dinner in the only restaurant overlooking the beach in Puerto Morelos. While the service was satisfactory, the menu...
