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.

Super casual setting, halfway interested wait staff that let you do your own thing, but amazing food. And they even spiced it up quite a bit for us. It's not super cheap, but it's a lot cheaper (and a lot more food) than most of the other restaurants. It's not busier only because people probably... read more

While walking the down the street we were approached by a "local salesperson" trying to sell us something or rather. We told him no thank you we were hungry and just wanted to find a restaurant to eat. He right away suggested El Pesquero and gave us his card. He said make sure you tell them I sent you and... More

While visiting Puerto Morelos, I had dinner one evening in this beachy restaurant with a sand floor just off the village square and one street back from the beach and pier. The menu was extensive and offered something for every taste. Since the restaurant had a full bar, I started with a cocktail while considering my choice of an entree.... More

My wife and I stayed at Puerto Morelos for five days and we had two meals here. We loved it! The seafood mixiote was excellent! And the prices were much cheaper than other places at Puerto Morelos. Definite recommend!

We went there today based on all the positive reviews we had read and we really enjoyed it ! Service was good and friendly. Overall the venue looks nice and all makes you feel like sitting on the beach. We did not order entire fish but we did see clients being shown at their table some amazing fresh looking fish....

This place is really cool. Nice, laid back ambiance, clean bathrooms and delicious food. They even have a nice playground for the kids to play on. We requested a table next to it and the kids played while we waited. I ordered the shrimp with garlic and it was absolutely amazing. Seriously, I would eat that dish daily if I... More

Had lunch here today. It came highly recommended by the locals. Amazing food we had shrimp quesadilla, mixed seafood salad and calami between 2 of us. So much food for under 500 pasos that's like £20. Had several drinks too. Very casual and traditional. They had fresh fish delivered as we were eating. Highly recommended!!!! Defiantly worth a visit

Just got back from the restaurant in Puerto Morelos. As per the other reviewers, this was a good place for good food. Is it top drawer? No, but it is more than satisfactory and the price is very reasonable as well. Had a good waiter, very attentive. Shrimp cocktail (Med) had 25 small to medium size shrimp, served in a... More

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Puerto Morelos. The food and staff are wonderful. I have eaten here many times and am never disappointed. The best fish fillet Mojo de Ajo in Town. Be warned you need to get there early as the kitchen closes at 8pm.
