Best Empanadas and parilla but poor service

We ate at this restaurant twice because the empanadas and parilla were fantastic. The price was excellent. People were waiting for an hour to get a table so make sure you get a reservation. The staff was running around like crazy. You have to be patient but the food makes up for the poor service.

You can smell meat cooking on the wood fired grill from the plaza down town. Amazing meats and pizzas. The pizzas were generous and all ingredients very fresh, locally sourced. The meats were cooked to perfection. Interesting sauces for dipping. One drawback is the restaurant is quite small and some of the outdoor tables are actually in the street. Traffic... More

This restaurant is among my favorites in Puerto Morelos - although certainly not the least expensive You can count on a very nice and consistent meal here I had a New York Steak and my companion another steak dish Both were very nice if not exceptional As said consistency in a restaurant is among a very important consideration Service is...

Our family of four had a delicious meal here. This may sound funny, but we really loved the bread they served before the meal and the sauces that came with it were very tasty! My son ordered the flank steak, and not only was it cooked perfectly (medium well), but it was one of the largest steaks I have ever... More

The food was very good and it's one of the more "upscale" places in this small town. My only complaint is that they treated us like gringos, which we are, but I hate that I have to expect to be scammed. All the restaurants here use purified water, but they brought me bottled water which of course they charged me... More

We ate here 2 years ago and loved the pizza and empanadas. We returned on this trip for our daughters pizza fix. Mi esposa enjoyed spinach and beef empanadas and a salad. I satisfied my steak mood with a mouth watering New York strip steak. The meal was finished off with the teens splitting a Nutella crepe and for the... More

After reading TA reviews one would be unwise not to try it. We did and found the steaks wonderful. Good quality cuts cooked to our orders. Given the generous portions the prices were good value. Bit of class about this place

Fantastic food! We went twice and tried our best to work our way through the entire menu. We had empanadas (delicious), steak (juicy, tender, and cooked on a wood grill just like in Uruguay and Argentina), lasagne (good but extremely heavy) and salad, since we're health nuts. Atmosphere is terrific. lots of outdoor seating, and on weekends live music right... More
