Difficult to find. But worth the effort. We were looking for a casual local Restraunt with good food. They did not disappoint. Will definitely go back on next visit.

Absolutely great food, amazing service, can't wait to go again! I read a lot and heard a lot about this restaurant and I wasn't let down. The food was very fresh, expertly prepared, and is some of the best I've had in Mexico. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone. We walked to location and had quite an adventure...

We went to El Moro twice on our two week trip. Normally we don't return to a restaurant, because we like to experience as many places as possible, but we had to make an exception for El Moro. The food was very good, but it was truly the service that was the star. Our waiter, Ray, just emanated love for... More

This has got to be one of the best places on the island to eat. We had a great meal and customer service above and beyond expectations. We have eaten there every time we've been on the island and thinking that we'll eat there again before we leave.

My friend and I have eaten at this restaurant about five times. This is our favorite restaurant in Cozumel, by far. Generally we get one of the assorted seafood platters. The waiters at the restaurant are so nice they feel like family. I would highly, highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Cozumel.

We looked at trip advisor and went for El Moro. It was so worth the visit. Nice to escape the touristy area downtown for an authentic meal at this place. Prices were ok to. Go there!

Very much worth the trip from the main drag. The chicken mole was incredible. And the family that owns the restaurant immediately treats you like one of their own.

This place is not to miss! Their food is authentic and delicious! We had a large group ranging from 9 -70 years old and everyone enjoyed their meal! The service was quick and accommodating for such a large group and so friendly! Definitely one of my top 3 favorite places to eat on the island!

Had been meaning to try this place for years & wish we'd tried it sooner. Great food here. Can't remember the name of the big seafood platter for 2 but it was good, especially the garlic shrimp! Great margaritas. Make sure you get the coconut ice cream for dessert - it's to die for! Can't remember our waiter's name but... More
