Great seafood!

Visited friends living in Puerto Morelos and they took us out to eat at Las Palmeras. Greatly enjoyed the garlic and butter fish and you can see the boat that caught your dinner. We always love to visit places the locals love and find the best food. Great meal and the owner was extremely nice... read more

If you eat nothing else while in town, you MUST try the shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon! Simply amazing! Service is average, atmosphere is average. Food was great.

Amazing Mexican owned place , fresh fish good smiley waiter "Abundio" and best prices in town.. a little bit hidden though .. amazing view once inside😉 Look foor it, it's worth it.. between "ElPelicano" restaurant and "LaPanza es Primero" ... It's worth it... Not a Typical Turistic place😁

My wife and I had the fish fillet with butter and garlic which was wonderful. The best fish we have had in Puerto Morelos this trip. The service was attentive and friendly. The wine was a white Mexican (the only one they had) but it was palatable. We had a nice open air view of the fishing boats and beach.

This is a reasonable priced restaurant specializing in fish. We had the Garlic Butter Grouper and it was fabulous. Great service by the owner himself!

Excellent location south of Pelcano's on the same side of the street. Excellent fresh fish, great view, romantic but inexpensive. This is always one of our go to places when we are in P.M.

We just had the best seafood dinner in Puerto Morelos at Las Palmeras. Fresh fish, large servings; the owners, Abundio and Jose, cook and serve the meal with pride and care. The restaurant is hard to find, but well worth searching for. It is right on the water with great views. We have been coming to Puerto Morelos for about... More

We came here on a wim for a late night meal from the Grand Mayan resort to adventure out for the night. Found this place and ordered our food, fresh guacamole which they made in the restaurant for us, and drinks. Ended up buying the workers rounds of tequilla shots and had a great time as we were the only... More

The staff and owners were very nice and worked hard. Their hot sauce is awesome! Seems crazy that the cost is the exact same as what you might pay in the US. Feels like the workers are getting the royal shaft. We went in looking for a Steeler game. They had 2 TV's and 2 stations that played football. My... More
