The view is worth a lot here, overlooking the beach. And La Panza is off the beaten path, so a bit quieter. The salad of romaine, pears, blue cheese and mango dressing was excellent. Guacamole okay, but pre-made so too cold. The fish taquitos (3) were fine, nice sauce. Sol was cold and quick.

I ate here three times in a week. The food is excellent, with large portions. The place is right on the water with a beautiful view and the service is excellent.

Visited early on a dreary morning, my spirits were lifted immediately with great Mexican Food and the most serene view. Wait staff was excellent and decent prices. Visited in 2011.

We walked to Puerto Morales from our resort and stumbled upon this restaurant - this was by far the best meal we had this week! We ordered the queso fundido and the tocho morocho (basically fajitas - beef, chicken, chorizo, peppers and onions, yum!) Cute décor, right on the beach, great service. Must try it!

This restaurant was recommended by a travel guide at the Cancun airport as a nice pit stop for a meal on our way to Playa del Carmen. The food is delicious and the view hard to beat. It's right on the beach. We also had great service.

My family and I live in Puerto Morelos, so we're pretty familiar with all the restaurants. The truth is that we love just about all of them, and La Panza es Primero is no exception - good food, excellent prices, friendly staff, and really fun decor.

Loved the food here! I had the Pastor burrito that had tomatillo salsa on half & red sauce on half. It was very good. My fiance had the salmon, she said it was fantastic! Two other couples in our groups ordered the molcajete. It looked amazing!

We stopped here while wandering down the beach after doing some shopping in downtown PM. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The margaritas were great and well priced. We will be back here! :)
