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.

We always stop by this restaurant when visiting Puerto Morales. The view can't be matched, the food is great and the price is right.

Fun atmosphere -- plastic tables on sand but still well done and good atmosphere. We had 3 ceviches and all were wonderful. The mediums are bigger than large in other places and were enough for our family of 4. The garlic grilled fish was too much (we were already full) but good. Lovely place to try. And it had a...

Don't get turned off by the plastic tables and chairs and the dirt floor, this place knows about fish and service. From the moment my husband and I sat down we were treated to good food and service. We had a large delicious fish ceviche to start. It turned out to be enough for the next day's lunch too. Then... More

We went a couple of times for appetizers - shrimp ceviche and calamari - and they were huge and delicious. We finally came for dinner and it was outstanding! Their "spicy" seafood soup was delicious and the whole fried grouper and was quite a meal. Javier and Antonio took great care of us. Highly recommend!

This is a pretty classic place with sand floors, waiters that their seafood and where freshness and tastiness are all one. The conch meat we had as a starter was absolutely excellent in that it was super soft and tasty. And their Margaritas are made with fresh lime juice instead of the sugar water. In Puerto Morelos this is a... More

This place is great, kids love it and parents love it more. There's sand as a floor, the winds runs great and that's all you need for amenties. The rest is all food, fresh fish just catched, awsome shrimp, nothing have been frozen, love the lobster, you name it. If you are looking for great food locals love, this is... More
