Great food, fresh ingredients, friendly service. This restaurant was our first destination after we arrived in town and settled in. We also appreciate our server helping us with our Spanish!

Small place on a side street off the square, across from the church. Had a most enjoyable and relaxing dinner; excellent steak and the cannelloni with mushrooms was incredibly tasty. A rich Malbec completed the feast. Highly recommend.

This place, food, staff, ownership.. not to discount the patrons, is the place to be seen in Puerto Morelos, MX (Quintana Roo ). Location, did I fail to mention the GREAT location? There are several local/tourist friendly places in this village.. seems that most of the owners eat here, too. N'uf said..... A must stop kinda location...

The service at Los Gauchos was the best part. We had a friendly server who was very warm and helpful to making our choices from the menu. The food was decent, but nothing to get excited about. The empanadas were dry, the steak was without any seasoning, and their chimichurri sauce was lacking flavor.

If you're in Puerto Morelos and need a change from tacos and mariscos, try Los Gauchos for some excellent Argentinian-style food. The pasta is home-made and very good. And they make excellent espresso. Alicia was very helpful and friendly as our server. Thank you!
