we had a couple of cocktails and 1/2 k shrimp. Didn't care for the shrimp but the chips and salsa were good. Good prices. Lovely location on the water with a nice vibe

Pelicano's is just off the town square facing the beach and the dock. Reasonable prices for food & drinks. Their seafood ceviche is fantastic - loaded with octopus, shrimps, other seafood. Best part is sitting on the patio watching the pelicans around the wharf.

Stopped here for a cold Corona and appetizers during a day trip to Puerto Morelos. Very professional and attentive. Food was good and we were serenaded by a couple of gentleman with a harp and guitar. Good prices, food, and entertainment! And the view, well, that speaks for itself.

This restaurant has the best view in town!! Wide open outdoor seating and a nice view of the square, the ocean and the pier. The food was pretty ordinary and honestly not very good. The margarita was substantial but very watered down. Great location to just chill on a beer or two at sunset.

The view from this place over the beach is beautiful! The shrimp and fish fresh and delicious! I kept thinking that the scene was like a movie set, but it was real!

This is one of our favorite places but our food yesterday was mediocre . We both had fried shrimp. They were hard & greasy. Please take your standards back to what everyone expects. We eat here 2 to 3 times a yr

Anytime a restaurant in Mexico can't get it together to serve a decent plate of nachos, beware. How well do you think they'll do with other dishes? This is a great location to have a drink on a lovely large verandah that's right on the beach. But I'd stop at the drink. This place screams tourist trap. I was tempted... More

Had a nice but short stop there. Enjoyed a local band. Getting a table overlooking the water is a must!

Honestly, we only stopped in for a snack. A couple of huge margaritas, nicely decorated, chicken fingers and a large order of french fries ran about $25. The chicken fingers were cooked in a batter that was a bit foreign to an American kid's taste buds. The 'ritas were decent and there was a nice view--not much else to say... More
