We were staying in a resort down the road and took a walk down the marina when we saw this place. It’s right by the water and is really pretty. The owner (im so sorry I can’t remember his name!) saw how hot my partner...was and straight away went to get us a fan which he appreciated a lot!! We ordered a Caesar salad to start with and the waiter came and made the dressing from scratch in front of our table and it tasted so good! We had the cowboy and ribeye for mains both of which were lovely as well. The pina colada was also huge btw if you love a cocktail. Would definitely recommend this place, worth a walk down the marina to find it!More

We were staying in a nearby all inclusive. We decided to try this beautiful restaurant because we were celebrating an anniversary and 2 high school graduates. So happy we did! The ambiance, staff and food were amazing! They went above and beyond and we will...definitely be back next time we are in the area.More

We were staying at all inclusive resort but as this restaurant was Quay side and I'm a fish fan thought we would get the freshest sea food in the area We were not disappointed My wife had the scallops for starter and she raved about...them I had the shrimp cocktail which was fantastic Mains were sea and earth steak was cooked to perfection and fish was delicious. My wife had chicken which he thoroughly enjoyed Guiermo advised he would.make me the best mayan coffee and boy did he deliver. The restaurant is lovely inside surprisingly spacious with an air conditioned area should you choose We were made to feel very welcome and really enjoyed our evening Will definitely be back when we returnMore

5 years ago we stayed in an all inclusive so didn’t use this restaurant but saw it was always busy and seemed like a special night out destination so had high hopes The first impression was good with welcome nibbles of the most delicious warm...fresh mini dough balls and dips!!! We chose steak because it was special night Tough, overcooked meat, cold accompaniment of potato. The potato was sliced in small portion with sauce over Heads up for some the soup starters are sweet but that is a bit of a theme for area A drink was included in special and that was all we had because we weren’t offered anything else It took a long time to pay and we were put down by a waitress who was assisting serving a tossed salad when we asked for bill,check... She said not now even though we’d asked previously No idea why 2 people need to do a salad at table She was rude What appeared to be the owner/cook came around tables and he was charming but if his specialty is front of house then he needs to employ a chef and manager for the staff I’m not sure this place will exist when we visit next They shouldn’t rely on tourists who don’t return and expect a new batch to not care about standards They have a residential area which they should be able to entice regulars from!More

Guiermo was an amazing host. The food was a 10, the ambiance was a 10. Yes, a little pricey but worth it. I would highly recommend

We were staying at the Dreams hotel and the restaurant was a 5 minute walk from the hotel. We saw the place in the daytime and it didn’t look much but night time it is a different place! The atmosphere was chilled, relaxed and it...was a lovely place to have an evening meal. We went on a Wednesday, steak night special, 35 US dollars for a drink, starter and steak. Great value for money, the owner came out and talked to us and was mingling with other customers. Definitely recommend a visit!More

Whilst spending 8 days in Puerto Aventuras we tried many of the best restaurants. There are many good options but, standing out far and above the rest, was Pelican Point. After being warmly welcomed by Guillermo, the host and owner, he brought refreshments and proceeded...to explain the fresh fare and preparation. He is extremely knowledgeable and entertaining and left us, mouths watering, wanting one of everything. We started with the delicious Caesar Salad for two, made tableside. Next we had two of the three fresh catch entrees, Wahoo and Grouper. These dishes, prepared as recommended by Guillermo, were exceptional. There were also excellent shellfish and meat / poultry choices on his extensive menu. Excellent bar with a great wine and cocktail selection. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting. Great ambience with marina views. Highly recommend Pelican Point as one of your finest dinner choices in PA!More

Wonderful, tasteful, and romatic ambience with a beautiful bar, indoor, and outdoor dining spaces. The food was all fresh and delicious! We had Lobster and seared ahi tuna which were both very fresh and deliciously prepared. The wines were also very good. My wife had...Pinot Noir and I had Montepulciano. Guillermo, the chef and owner was delightful, very charming, and made us feel special and comfortable.More

Pelican Point was a great restaurant and experience.The food was excellent especially the seafood soup (My husband drank the broth from the bowl it was so good). The service was also excellent. I highly recommend that you check it out when visiting Puerto Aventuras or...the Playa de Carmen area.More

We recently stayed in Puerto Aventuras, and were invited by “Guillermo” to join them for a “fresh caught special of Wahoo, or prawns,” which he was holding a bucket of, as we walked by the restaurant......we read the reviews, and decided to have dinner there....The same man welcomed us in, and spent about 10 mins reciting the entire menu, assuring us that fish was all fresh.......he never provided a menu, or wine menu, insisting to tell us all about the selections, which should have been a sign.....the Caesar salad was tasty, but over dressed......we ordered the snapper, and it was far from being fresh!!!! Very fishy, covered in a literal blob of some kind of cheese, that did nothing to disguise the terrible flavor. The servers did an excellent job, and were polite and accommodating. They also DO NOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS, which is ridiculous for a well established restaurant. To say the least, we do not recommend this place to anyone.....if you want a really fresh, fantastic, casual meal, save yourself the walk, and stop in at The Nauti Burro, for excellent tacos & burritos, and fresh margaritas! They accept cash or credit card as well.More

We were told that the snapper was fresh and it clearly was not. Very fishy tasting and obviously not fresh.

I am pretty sure they could accommodate you, especially during the shoulder season. The owner speaks fairly good English as well. Congrats!
