We read the TA reviews and they were spot on. We ate here twice. We had fish and prawns both times. The food is amazingly fresh and the service is excellent. Felipe looked after us and his recommendations were perfect. We were the only tourists there, the other diners were locals- always a good sign. Would definitely recommend. Loved it.

Excellent service and great seafood, we had the lobster tails and they were excellent. The wait staff always attentive and making sure you don't run out of anything. The free notches with different salsas was an excellent starter, and did I mention it was FREE! great place. Just a side note, they had a play area for children to keep... More

We met some friends here for dinner - I had looked at previous reviews but not read them carefully. This is a great place for people with small kids. There's a small playground behind the dining area. The food was pretty good but the menu was limited. Not trying to scare anyone off...it just wasn't what we were looking for... More

What complaints? Service, Atmosphere, Food, Local Clientele, we were absolutely delighted. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was a mix of upscale casual (in outdoor eating) and local hangout. Everything we had from the complimentary nachos (with all the fixings), to the side guacamole to the lobster tail dinner was amazingly delicious. Prices were... More

We visited this restaurant due to the great reviews on tripadvisor and so glad we did! The margaritas, quacamole, ceviche and fresh seafood were all outstanding. Fun atmosphere, cool t-shirts, definitely our favorite meal on our vacation. Would recommend to anyone visiting puerto Morelos!

Javier greets you at the entrance. Great person to make you feel comfortable. The menu has a variety of fish dishes, I especially enjoy the grilled fish with rice and coleslaw. Have never been disappointed with the food or the FAST service. Guaranteed to be good. Recommend to anyone that asks about a restaurant that serves good fish. Try it... More

We visited on a sunny evening, the restaurant was very busy with a mix of couples, friend groups and family groups. There is a wonderful safe play- area for children allowing parents to relax and enjoy the wonderful food. We ordered shrimps and fish fillet. Both dishes were lovely and very reasonably priced at just over 300 pesos for both... More

We walked to Puerto Morelos from our resort, which was about a 45 minute walk on the beach from our resort. Great margaritas!!! We had the Mayan fish, which was unbelievable!! We went back for seconds two days later. The fried fish, seafood mixiote soup, calamari, and guacamole were also fabulous. So fresh and flavorful. Great staff and atmosphere. One... More

About $10 for pescado entero or cocktele mixto. Really enjoyed this large spread out restaurant with a big menu and quite a selection of beers. Spirits and wine available also. I always go to Mexican seafood places twice--once for fish and once for shrimp-or-octopus-or-conch-or mixed ceviche or cocktail. The fish is better here but the mixed seafood cocktail is better...
