Amazing Mac and Cheese!

We had he BEST service at John Gray's! My husband had the pork and I had mac and cheese because my stomach had been a bit upset with me due to the Mexican dinner the night before (which was delicious, just tough on this American tummy!). I not only was able to eat the macaroni and cheese, it was... read more

We've been to John's Ray's numerous times. Always great food and terrific service! Great ambiance, with the choice to be seated indoors, or in the courtyard outside.

I didn't get the full experience as I only waited to receive the food to go. I had a steak, which was rare. Food was delicious, but I didn't get to choose how I wanted my steak. Must be a one time mistake, but upper class and good food. Overall good experience.

Most of the tortillas at other places were corn but here they... More

John Gray's is a terrific restaurant in the heart of Puerto Morelos. The service and food is really great and the staff was very professional and attentive. If you are staying in the Puerto Morelos area, a trip to John Gray's is a must.
