Went here June 4 2013. 2for1 beer was 35 peso very reasonable. Ceviche was good. Very personable waiter's more than willing to provide you with information about the area.

“One of our favorites...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This place is a hidden gem! It could only be better if it were right on the beach. We have been coming to Pto Morelos since 2006 and eat here (multiple times) every time we come back! Try the garlic fish, to die for!

“We Kept Coming Back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is an old-style fish restaurant, tables set in the sand, with wonderfully fresh fish. We were addicted to the delicious shrimp cocktails with plump camarones, flavorful sauce, and a generous amount of avocado. There are two sizes; I recommend the smaller unless you really like huge portions..

“Great food and friendly people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The food was awesome!! We were originally headed to Pelicanos because of all the good reviews. When we got there, it looked like a tourist trap, so we asked one of the locals where they would eat and was directed to El Pesquero. We had three dishes, a fried grouper fillet, stirfried oysters with tortillas, and a sardine dish of some sort with rice and beans. I thoroughly enjoyed all three dishes but my wife didn't care much for the sardines. Definitely would come back to this place if we come through here again.
