Loved the fish sticks... so fresh! The chips and sauces/dips served with them were delicious too. Fun playground area for kids to play. Phillipe and the other servers that helped us were great and the service was the biggest reason we came back before we left.

We have been there for dinner. Mosquitos had dinner too, but the waiters provide us with repellent. Guacamole, a must for us, fried octopus ceviche, a new entry, XX beer, sparkling water and a daiquiri lemon. We spent 470 pesos, a little bit more than what we are used to. The food was on average (guacamole was good) and the... More

Not only is the food fresh daily but the atmosphere, the service is top notch. You will not spend one minute waiting for someone to attend to you. The fish is always fresh, they show you the catch so you can choose your own. Shrimp prepared any way you wish. Outstanding service.

We had the shrimp ceviche and some guacamole to start with and they were both delicious and mouth watering... More

This restaurant was just 10 minutes from our hotel. We just happened to be shopping in PoMo and a local suggested this restaurant. As we arrived it seemed friendly and inviting.

I just moved to Puerto Morelos and live a block away and it has been really hard to go out and try other restaurants. They serve a fish filet any way you want with cole slaw, rice beans and mashed potatoes for no more than 110 pesos if my memory serves correctly. It's more of a daytime place so don't... More

The fish and sea food couldn't be any fresher. Boyfriend ordered the fried fish and i had the "langosta". Everything was great and service was very good. Its a nice, friendly resto.
