So many things right about our experience here. It was the last night of our stay and we were wanting something a little bit special. We had been to another popular place and, after appetizers, discovered they had run out of chicken (!). We paid our tab and walked across to square to Los Gauchos, where a real thing Latin... More

We went here last year and returned again this year. This is truly a great place for meat lovers. They serve an incredible amount of meats and it is all very tasty and delicious. I enjoyed a fabulous glass of wine which was quite a big pour. Their empanadas are also fantastic. We shared a Caesar salad that was also... More

We ate here our first night in Puerto Morelos and were impressed. We had sautéed grouper, a steak and a pasta dish. The fish and pasta were very good, however the steak was tough and small. Service was on "Mexico time", but was redeemed by the atmosphere.

This is really a little gem in Puerto Morelos. The food was very good: we got empanadas and other appetizers, a sandwich, pasta... We tried a bit of everything and it was great. A filling and satisfying lunch and fairly priced! We loved it!

Good pizza & cesaer salad - the salad was not the normal cesaer, but it was good all the same. Friendly service and was open on a Monday (most aren't!)

Los Gauchos is right by the church and since we ate there on a Sunday evening, there was constant bell ringing as they called people to the evening service. We sat at one of the sidewalk tables and were immediately brought menus but it took a while for our waiter to return to take our order. We ordered a caprese... More

Just returned from Pto. Our group had dinner here and everyone came away impressed. Two of us had steak arrachera and loved it. The empanadas went over well too.
