This restaurant is over 30 years old and it is shameful how bad the food is. We were expecting great food given how many years this place has been opened. We noticed a lot of customers with wristbands, this place with magnificent ambiance has been turn into a il cheapo tourist dive. I ordered cazuela de Mariscos (seafood casserole), the... More

Straight and to the point, this place was great. Great food, great drinks, with a live band. Simply beautiful large dining room with a great Mexican history pictured on the walls.

This place has a nice atmosphere, not crowded but popular. The food was, in my opinion, good to very good. The service was very good and the Mariachi's made for a festive mood. This place serves both all-inclusive and pay as you go guests. Be sure to make a reservation through your hotel. We got in once without one but... More

We wanted to try a restaurant away from the resort for that Mexican food experience. This restaurant was beyond our expectations. The food and service staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The only negative - the waiter tried to get us to order some special for two people with a price of $72.00 - we told him... More

The Hyatt Ziva recommended this place. We had 19 including 10 kids (ages 6-14) They got us in same day and we have an awesome Dinner. Excellent service is an insult to what the manager a wait staff delivered. Mariachi saranades and margarita delivered the quintessential Mexican experience which is exactly what we were looking for. I can't say for... More

You can spend a nice dinner there. Live mariachi music at a Mexican Hacienda style restaurant combined with a great waiters attitude and excellent food. 100% recommended!

My wife and I really enjoyed eating at this restaurant. It's a great "hacienda" environment. The decor and attention is very good. Everything is cooked on the spot and fresh. It's a bit on the expensive side, but it's worth it. The live Mariachis add to the good ambiance. The only down side is... $30 for a song request! What... More

Each year we dine at El Mortero and it never disappoints us. The food, staff and entertain be are outstanding. Do not fail to enjoy the Sunday brunch. There are more selections to choose from than you can count. My son and his family which includes two teenage girls look forward to this and thoroughly enjoy themselves. Sylvester is the... More
