Nice setting, good place for business meetings.

Puerto Morelos is a nice quiet town and this restaurant has been around for a long time serving up good seafood. The view is very nice and all. Depending on my clients who are looking for a more formal dining I will bring them here though its really not that formal.

We always stop in this restaurant when in Puerto Morales. The food is great, the view is great and the price is right. Love to watch the boats going out with the people going snorkeling.

Called in for a morning coffee. It was truly awful. Bad, stewed taste and served almost cold. We won't be back.

This restaurant which is right on the town square and pier services mostly tourists. The food is standard but the view of the blue waters is excellent. If you are looking for a quick meal on your way south from the airport this will service your need. They can accommodate a large group and the outside seating is a great... More

Pelicanos has great service, good food - especially the grilled whole fish - and the views are great! The woman who runs Pelicanos snorkel shack is a great spirit, full of thoughtful ideas about visiting the area.

The flavor and presentation of the soup was excellent with crabs, clams, shrimp, pulpo, fish, and vegetables. Spent a lovely day enjoying the gente breezes off El Caribe while we ate lunch.

This large establishment on the beach and on the square might strike you as the primary tourist trap. But we were impressed by the good food and friendly service. It's the best location to watch the beach and water activities. The staff does not rush you. We have lingered over coffees in the afternoon and enjoyed people watching. The prices... More
