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 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

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 don't walk off the square... 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!
