And the fish was fantastic! Now they only had snapper snapper or snapper but I must say the snapper was good. I got the breaded with aurora sauce and ate all of it. Not greasy, lightly breaded. Great way to top off our trip. Only negative is there is not a great breeze so it was a little warm even... More

We had the most tender octopus in the ceviche. It was so fresh and delicious. The waiter even set us up with a snorkeling trip. He actually had someone come to the restaurant and talk to us about it. He also squeezes fresh limes for the margaritas.

Had a little walk around Puerto Morelos before deciding on this place. We were looking for ceviche and were told it would be super fresh here. When we arrived there were no spaces near the balcony but the lovely server let us move once some people left - he was super friendly about it. I had the breaded grouper and... More

My wife and I plus another couple dined here earlier this month. We had been exploring the area and came upon Puerto Morelos, and La Casa del Pescadoro was the first seafood restaurant we came upon. It is in the town square and about 100 meters from the ocean. The restaurant is small and located on the second floor overlooking... More

Upstairs, over the fish market. Not fancy, but very good. Drinks more reasonable than almost anywhere else. Good portions. Nice to look out over the square as you sip a margarita and enjoy the fish of the day. Pleasant service.

We have been coming to Playa for many years and we always ensure we eat at La Casa Del Pescador at least a couple of times. Their seafood is as fresh as it can get with Port Morales at its footsteps with local fisherman selling daily catch. Love their ceviche, garlic shrimp and whole fish! Highly recommend!

We eat here every year and it never disappoints. This time husband had the hogfish jail love, and I had beef fajitas. We were both very happy with our meals, but he was ecstatic!! And the margaritas are fabulous......

Four of us enjoyed dinner here one night after they had newly reopened. All four meals were great and the margaritas were the best we had in the entire month we stayed in Puerto Morelos. The margaritas were so good that we accidentally over paid our bill by 1000 pesos. Mistaking the $ sign for a one we put 1750... More

We ordered the lime soup for an appetizer and grilled hogfish filet for dinner. (hogfish needs a more glamorous name) .We asked to share because we are seniors and... Oh...my...two generous bowls of delicious lime soup and two beautiful plates of rice, vegetables and perfectly grilled fish ! Very attentive water . Reasonable price. Will go back again. Bueno.
