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.

Nachos were served to us while we waited. I had seafood mixiote ...yumm. All meals were great ...order seafood. Piña colada was refreshing. Everyone had two drinks and a... More

We ate at El Pesquero last night. The Consierge at the Grand Mayan recommended it as one of the best seafood restaurants in Puerto Morelos. A laid back atmosphere within walking distance from the town square. Plastic tables and chairs, on the sand, under a big palapa. We ate fresh grilled Sea Bass, grilled shrimp, and calamari. Outstanding quality seafood... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant - on the sand, open to the beautiful breezes. Everything seemed very fresh, and was simply prepared. Two standouts were the Mayan Fish and the squid - which was wonderfully tender. Nice staff. The only downgrade is a challenging washroom! Great experience.

We had a Conch dish and a squid ceviche. They both were okay, not particularly inspiring. I don't mind the sand on the floor, it adds to the atmosphere, I guess. Service was wonderful though. Will I go back, probably not. I think I will give somewhere else a try.

What a great find in Puerto Morelos. Our party of 6 went for dinner which began with the Grande Mixed Seafood Civeche. The portion was huge and shared by all. Very Fresh and tasty. I also had the seafood soup. The soup was $8 usd for a large bowl and was fantastic. Very fresh and just the right mix of... More

We had a large group and started with ceviche and calamari - both very good! Most in our group ordered the horseback shrimp or seafood paella. We had friendly and fast service ....and even a serenade on guitar before we left. Nice-Fun would like to go back during the day!
