We stopped in here for some beers and shots while walking around the town. Some street musicians came in and serenaded us at our table while we were here. Was very nice!

We were in Puerto Morelos and a local recomended this restaurant so we gave it a try. It sits right on the beach and we chose to sit out in the open air part. The service was good. I had the fried grouper and it was very good as well. Best of all, the beer was cold.

The restaurant was located right off the town market and directly on the beachfront. There was a fishing pier that was readily accessible after we enjoyed our meal so that we could mingle with the charming residents of this area. The service was exceptional and the food hit the spot after a day of sailing. Cold cerveza, awesome food, gorgeous... More

Although I'm writing now, aren't I? Fajitas were pretty good, the quesadilla's, not so much. Sickening amount of cheese, so much that you can't finish them. It is on the beach which should be good except the beach isn't overly attractive. I couldn't find a way to review the town, so I will briefly here. Disappointing. The beach was covered... More

My husband always says - be suspicious of a restaurant with a great view. We should have only ordered drinks here. We decided on food as drinks looked ridiculous with USA and Mexico flags stuck on it. Don't know why my husband bothered with a cubano as its not a real cubano anyways. Hello guys- cubano at least is pickles,... More

We stopped here afterl a long day in the sun. It was so relaxing...Beautiful scenery, calm, quiet except for the sound of the water! We joted that it was a place where you could actually carry on a conversation without having to scream over the noise. We went back the next night as well for dinner, drinks and fun with... More

Stopped in puerto morales and found this little gem on the beach. 4 people had drinks and apps and only cost $22. Couldn't be the value or the view. Worth leaving the resort for a visit to the town. Same souvenir shops as playa without the hassle. Much smaller and more nicer to walk around.

We visit the Riviera Maya every year for 3 weeks. On our drive south we stop in Puerto Morelos and have lunch at Pelicano's. We had the Lion fish Veracruzana on our drive to Playa del Carmen. Two weeks later on our drive from Puerto Aventuras to Cancun we had Grouper Veracruzana going north. This restaurant never disappoints us. The... More
