We are a tipical local seafood restaurant, worried about our friends satisfaction, thats why we only use the best quality products and ingredients. We offer a good variety of food: guacamole, shrimp quesadillas, fish fillet, ceviches and coctails, shrimps, lobster, conch and some house specialities. We also offer some drinks and coctails like margaritas, pina colada, daiquiris, cazuela with tequila, margachela (margarita with a beer), beers, sodas, fresh waters and some spirits and liquors.

Nice place to spend an evening

Met some friends for dinner here and enjoyed staying for several hours enjoying the company and the setting. Food was great and so was the service. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food.

I'm finding it even hard to give 1 star. Before coming to this restaurant I read the reviews on TA and was looking forward to a really tasty fish meal. We arrived around 7.00pm and were welcomed to take a table by the waiter. We ordered the Mexican Shrimp/Prawn soup. I was really looking forward to this. Well it had... More

It was our first stop after getting off the plain, and we were not amazed. The beer was cold and it seemed like a good start, the staff was friendly but went we got our food I can only say it was OKAY.

We were referred to this restaurant by our taxi driver (We tipped him tremendously and he even tried to give some back, saying that was too much). He talked with us a while to give us the "low down" on Puerto Morelos. He highly recommended El Pesquero and he was right on the money! We were greeted immediately and had... More

My wife and I enjoyed the smallish outdoor cafe on a slow Friday evening. Delicious fish tacos started the evening as our appetizer. The dish included some of the best pico and hot sauce. They were out of guacamole so we tried the tacos. Good luck for us. I had the Chilpachole soup as my meal and it was loaded... More

I heard from friends that this was the best restaurant in Puerto and I think is very good but not the best. I haven't tried El Nicho yet but La Loteria so far ranks # 1 for my group of 10. El pesquero offers a variety of seafood dishes. My husband and I tried the fried fish and pescadillas. The... More

My second time to this restaurant and it was again my favorite meal. My kids had arrachera and grilled chicken both ate their entire meal and they're only 3 and 6. I ate a shrimp burrito and my husband horse back shrimp. Both were delicious! And of course the playground for my kids made this trip even better. I tried... More
