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

Very good seafood overlooking the marina. Las Palmeras is not obvious from the street entry, so you will have to look for it. From the water side of the plaza go to the right past Pelicanos and the various gift shops. Las Palmeras is in the same entryway as a dive center and some small shops. You can sit under... More

The restaurent has a nice atomosphere with an AMAZING view and a lot of seating. They have a nice little aquarium in the front as you arrive with conchs living in it which seemed to amuse the children of the restaurant. The food was alright. The breaded shrimp were just that - bread and shrimp. They were split down the... More

Yes right on the beach, good food and friendly staff. The Mexican food is really good but maybe skip it and go straight to the fresh seafood. Great guac too.

Wonderful restaurant in great location, just across from the ferry dock and steps away from our hotel. The service was excellent and the beer, ice cold! Try the ceviche with fish, shrimp and conch! To die for...and so much, we ended up taking it back with us to the hotel. We also had the rolled tacos and grilled shrimp. Delicious!!... More

We had tried one busy restaurant a couple of times before that was over crowded, over priced and over run with strolling musicians that we decided to look for another place. We found this gem with a view of the water, much more peaceful, well prepared food, better service, and priced very reasonably. The wait staff was very friendly and... More

We really enjoyed the food here. The locals seem to like this place, so we had to try it. We had guacamole that was great and the grilled shrimp was fabulous. The Tikinchic fish filet was different than I have ever had, but it was still good. We are going back with friends next week. The restrooms are not nice.... More
