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.

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.

Several recommendations brought us here. Casual, beachy vibe, friendly service. Shrimp cocktail (medium!) was enormous! Good guacamole, skip the margaritas and stick with beer. Horseback Shrimp (wrapped in bacon, topped with cheese, skewered and grilled) was outstanding, and we enjoyed the conch in garlic. However skirt steak was just eh and the burger - don't do it. (They removed it... More

We have been coming back year after year to this restaurant for its food, drinks and now manager Felipe. The setting is simple: a very large palapa, the floor is pure Caribbean sand, tables and chair:plastic. We keep coming back ( almost every week) for its delicious and generous shrimps, whole fresh fish, ceviches etc Muchas gracias Felipe

Don't miss this experience and meal! My husband has thought of this place since we were there several years ago. Our second experience did not disappoint! Local flavor, great food (he had the fried fish and I had ceviche) and lots of people watching. We went on a Sunday afternoon and the place was packed, but the service was still... More

What a hoot this place is. We got drinks, waiter bought out a couple of fresh whole fish filets, snapper and pargo. We also had shrimp and a burger. Very inexpensive and laid back atmosphere with many locals.
