The food we ordered wasn't very good. I ordered fish tacos and they tasted like frozen fish steaks stuffed in the tortilla. The house wine was good and the prices were cheap. This place seems like more of a drinking bar with expats who live in Morelos stopping in for a nightly drink or 10. If you decide to eat... More

While driving to our hotel south of Puerto Morelos we stopped in town to hit an ATM. Since it was lunchtime we decided to find a local restaurant. Cantina Habenero looked welcoming and we couldn't pass up 3 fish tacos for $60 ($3 U.S.). The tacos were amazing. We ended up coming back a few days later for more tacos... More

My favorite drink....Mojitos. Its a Cuban drink with lots of mint, lime and rum. Very refreshing and not sweet. During our 10 day stay in Mexico it was our go to place for Mojitos. Besides Mojitos their fish tacos are fresh, savory and delicious! We drank and ate here several times and were never disappointed.

This place seems to cater to Americans and Canadians. They have a big menu, in English and Spanish. The food is good, with large portions. The staff is very friendly. They usually are playing American Classic Rock. We try and go here to eat every time we are in Puerto Moreles.

The resturant is located near the Plaza square. First the exchange rate for peso to dollars in the resturant is much different than the bank, 3 points less!, beware, pay in pesos. We are waiting for food.

Great staff, party vibe, lots of dancing. You will enjoy this place if you like to have a few drinks and dance and watch people. Some of the regulars are real "characters" One of the few places that regularly has live music. Good Fun !!

Well, I would've given this place a better review, but for the horrible service we received tonight. We ate here 3 times during our visit to Puerto Morelos, and I can't fault the food. It is decent Tex-Mex and the chicken enchiladas are good. However the service on our last visit was so bad I must mention it in hopes... More

This place has a good variety of food. The main attraction here is the community atmosphere of the bar, and the live music that draws you in. I have enjoyed many nights here, soaking up the local flavor. I love the hot wings. I have never had a bad meal, and others that have visited with me were always satisfied.... More
