We went in the evening specifically because we heard they had live music on a Wednesday night. The band started sharply at 8:00 pm playing mostly classic rock. We ordered a big nacho plate to share but the cheese was not fully melted - it was OK. A good place if you like to drink and be around other people... More

Great pizza, good Mexican food. We find this place quite consistent. They always find you a table even if it is on the street, great fun.

This place is like a Puerto Morelos version of Cheers. the staff are great. Many regular patrons share stories, gossip, help strangers get situated. Expats stop by and chat for a few minutes and greet newcomers. My service dog was welcomed with joy by staff and clients which is not true in most of Mexico

We enjoyed a live classic rock band and very cheap drinks! Friendly casual atmosphere. Did not try the food.

The 2 for 1 margaritas and mojitos between noon and six is a plus. The food was good, and the pancakes at breakfast were top-notch. Enjoyed the ambience and the service.

My husband and I ate here several times during our trip to Puerto Morelos. There are great happy hour specials every day. The best margaritas we had were at this restaurant. The food is also good. Often they have bands playing at night. Fun atmosphere, friendly people, great drinks, and good food.

We spent one week in Puerto Morelos this December. Our first night in town we were looking for a restaurant and stopped in... the fish tacos were fantastic! The following afternoon we were walking through town and saw the two-for-one mojitos & margaritas sign (and thought hey why not stop?!) we are so glad we did. Absolutely fantastic margaritas!! They... More

When we were in PM three years ago, we ate here a number of times and enjoyed the drinks, food and atmosphere. We stopped for dinner tonight and yikes what a nosedive. I honestly could not taste the tequila in the watered down margarita and had to have our waiter bring over the bottle to add an additional shot. We... More
