A must for everyone

Having been to Los Gauchos at least once in my last 5 trips to Puerto Morelos, I cannot say enough good about it. Whether you want a nice dinner out or just a quick lunch, Los Gauchos has it. Everything is perfectly priced

I've been a repeat customer for the past 6 years of spending the holidays in PM. I always enjoy my visits to Gauchos. The staff is always excellent; whoever does the staffing does an excellent job! The food is delicious; my favorites are the salads, empanadas and pizzas - fantastic! I would definitely try them out if you haven't been.

Very quaint albeit small restaurant right across from church in business district. Attentive staff in this open air dinning establishment. Good food and good prices.

A terrific steak followed by a great performance by a local flamenco group, free to the public with neighbors stopping by to enjoy from the sidewalk. Check the calendar to see what's happening. My wife is a vegetarian and she found good things to eat.

Well , 2 years has past and we sat in the restaurant last night and ordered again.Wow. It was every bit as good as I remembered.Only trouble is it will... More

Will definitely skip this place next year. Food & service were mediocre. Took over an hour for our dinners, which had to be sent back because meat was too rare. Too many other places with better food & service. Wish we had stayed at Pirata...

Their fresh pasta is what I like the most about Los Gauchos. Great food, iced tea and even better performances every other night with live music. Excellent option.

Every night this place was busy so we were excited to try it. The service was friendly but the food was just average.
