Great little place. BBQ outside and specials on the board. As a party of 5 they were great and accommodating. We had the arrachera which was cooked fresh in front of us, delicious. It comes with guacamole and there is a selection of salad and salsas to add to your plate. Staff were super friendly and even let us move... More

What can I say? Charming service, food that could command 10x the price and exactly where you want to be. Pescado al ajo was delicious as well as everything else. Instead of rushing him away, the man working the grill even took a little something to a cute stray dog that was hanging-out. Nice place, 100%. Would return in a... More

I've been coming here often. This place has delicious beef tacos and they open late. Can you ask for more?

Some dishes may not be truly authentic but everything I ate here on my snorkelling trips up at Puerto Morellos was FIRST CLASS. Service was excellent and the fabulous food very well priced. I thought it was going to be very average ...a sort of cheap and cheerful place...well it was, but the quality of the food was better than... More

I had a yummy breakfast of Heuvos Rancheros, delicious coffee and fresh squeezed OJ. It's a little off the beaten path, but worth going out of your way for. It's also got some great art on the walls.

I am from southern California and I know what to expect from Mexican food. This place is not authentic or at least the dishes that my wife and I got weren't. Wifey and I got the chilaquiles in red sauce. I got to say I was very disappointed with the plate. Chilaquiles are typically fresh cut up tortillas that are... More

This was a real find. We had read about this place, and it was on our tripadvisor to-do list, and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. For only 105 pesos on Sunday, they serve an all you care to eat small buffet with fresh juice. It was the best deal of our vacation. They had several... More
