We ate here twice during our stay in PM and both times it was good. My wife didn't enjoy the breaded chicken because it had a fishy taste -- I assume it was the same oil they cook the fish in. I had seafood both times and found it to be excellent. Service was also excellent -- our server Phillipe... More

We travel up from Playa del Carmen for the small town and lunch. Yes there are good places in Playa.. but this is the best Beach Front restaurant for the low prices of a small town. We have been there many times, and with friends in playa we travel 30 minutes up to here.

Thinly sliced raw grouper, lightly marinated, topped with slices of jalapeños and olives and fresh limes. Served with the best margarita I've ever had. On the veranda by the beach with the pelicans and a warm light breeze that smells like the sea.

The place is great when you sit outside. You're right by the ocean. You can be people watching for hours. I had a ceviche and it was great. My husband had a fish fillet with butter and the flavor was excellent. Well Worth the visit. Local Musicians walk in to play guitars or harp. As long as they're not playing... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Puerto Morelos. Sitting outside listening to the waves crash into the beach makes a meal taste better. A good selection of well-prepared food for all meals.

Perfect relaxation stop for a snack, cool off, catch a Caribbean breeze and some tasty beverages while our daughters got their hair braided. Tourist prices but high quality to back it up. The shrimp were as good as they can get! The picture is of a kilo of shrimp. Our server, Natalio was very attentive. Our table was well perfect!... More

We enjoyed a late afternoon at Pelicanos for appetizers, several drinks, and a relaxing atmosphere. Our children played and swam in the sea as we sipped cocktails in the shade and watched. Food was fine (we just had appetizers) but the coconut shrimp was fantastic. Service was excellent. We will definitely visit again on our future vacations.

Had the coconut shrimp which were massive and coated in freshly grated coconut. Guacamole and salsa was fresh and fantastic.
