I can't say enough about this restaurant - the ceviche was so fresh and like nothing I've ever tasted - the local beers were ice cold and the prices were reasonable - we sat on the beach and had one of the best meals I've ever had. Highly Recommend!

This restaurant was recommended by a local gentleman who took our photos and he promised this was not like the other restaurants in town. Right on the beach with a great ocean view, this was indeed a place to capture the local flavor. We had fish tacos, a shrimp quesadilla and the guacamole with chips. The food was very good... More

Stopped in based on the recommendation of a local tour guide we used in Puerto Morelos. Food was much more reasonably priced compared to the resort where we were staying but prices were probably comparable to any other local restaurant. We ordered the largest ceviche and chicken quesadillas and it was too much food. Food was delicious as well. The... More

Beer, seafood, beachfront...how can you go wrong? You cannot go wrong. It's impossible to go wrong. Now, I wasn't there during a busy time (before the tourist season began), but even so, the attentiveness of the staff is worth noting. There is live music, too; the guy who sang/played guitar while I was there sang in both Mexican and English... More

I ordered the fish with garlic aielo, and it was heavenly. More than one person should eat at a time, for sure- plan to share, and order something else light to go with it. Digging your feet in the sand while dining al fresco is blissful- and watching the waves roll in adds much to the experience.

Our tour guide Luz suggested we try this place and it was a great suggestion, some of the best seafood at the best prices we found across town.... not the best view, but you are there to eat right... when we got the check we were pleasantly surprised!

We took the Bus there and grabbed a cab from the main highway into Puerto Morelos. It was a leisurely stroll to the beach and restaurant. The owner of La Brocherie recommended this restaurant because he said they make the "best Fish". Boy, he was right! We ordered "Boquineta Fish" and enjoyed the great taste and relaxed atmosphere of the... More

If you want to be ignored blatantly by waiters who seem to take your order but never bring it, you came at the right place. Food... average or below. Worst service in Puerto Morelos. Street musicians playing pooly around the place and messing around with an already messy experience. The only reason for me to give 2 circles instead of... More

Love this place!! Went twice over our holiday and we were never disappointed!! The lobster was delicious and large, 1 peso per gram. The shrimp cocktail was excellent - so fresh. The fresh fish fillet with garlic was also excellent. Don 't miss checking La Playita you won't be disappointed.

Went for lunch today per a few recommendations from locals. Great location and breeze but that is about on the positive side. We asked if the shrimp were large in the quesadilla and we were told yes - " the big ones." The quesadilla arrived and the cheese was horrible and the shrimp tiny. It was inedtable. Maragarita was just... More
