Amazing restaurant we came across by chance! We were bored with the food in the hotel so decided to venture out and so glad we did! Punta Corcho is a roof top restaurant over looking the town square and the sea so while eating or...meal we were able to watch the street entertainers and after walk around the street markets - just wonderful!More

Beautiful readers: +5 The kitchen service was fast and the flavor it is great. Keep in mind that we were a group of 13. The food it was 5/5 and Drinks were amazing too. -1 The service from our waiters, never knew my waiter name,...no tag name either. I had to ask 3 times for my beer, and my friend next to me had to ask twice for her white wine glass... I suggest to take notes in a digital ipad or a piece of paper in order not to forget about drinks. I might return for a second chance.🥳More

Nice location in the heart of town but not worth the effort of walking up their stairs. Planned on having drinks, apps and entrees. But after the ceviche we found better service, food and atmosphere elsewhere. After sitting down it took awhile for our drink...orders to be taken so we ordered ceviche at the same time. The flavor of the ceviche was fine but I had to cut up the fish to not be chewy (I shouldn’t have to cut my own fish). While there were plenty of staff we didn’t have good service. Asked for more chips to eat our appetizer- never saw that person again. We were asked about entrees and thankfully cut our losses and went elsewhere (close by and fabulous food and service)More

Punta Corcho is on the top of our list whenever we visit PM. The service, food, and experience are always top notch. Our recent visit did not disappoint. Everyone in the family always opts for the coconut stuffed with seafood, as it is insanely good....My wife held true to that conviction, and it was just that, insanely good. I ventured out into the unknown, and went with the fettuccini alfredo with shrimp and clams, and holy crap. Honestly the best pasta dish I have EVER had! We did a rare 2nd visit on our trip (my wife likes to visit as many new ones as possible), and we each had the same dishes, and both licked the dishes clean. Do yourself a favor and try each of these dishes, or at least visit Punto Corcho, as you won't be disappointed in the food, drinks, or service.More

We regularly have very good food in Mexico, but out of 10 visits, this was the worst meal we have had. We waited 25 minutes for a table, which is usually a good sign the restaurant is well liked. I asked to get a Rojito...made with tequila instead of mescal (I don't like mescal), he asked if I was sure because it is not sweet. I did not want sweet. They didn't have any margaritas with tequila accept a sweet pineapple one. It was okay, but you could not taste any tequila. For a much more flavorful similar drink go to El Socio Naiz for a Jamaica Margarita. My husband got a smokey pineapple mescal margarita. It was very sweet, but you could not taste any mescal. They brought out 2 small fried blue corn tortillas and 2 small bread rolls with 3 sauces. These items were delicious, but the only good tasting items of the evening. We ordered a ceviche de pescado en molcajete caliente, an arugula salad, the seafood risotto, and a filet de pescado con esquites. The arugula salad was soupy with dressing and was mixed greens, not arugula, and heavy with thick chunks of beets. The ceviche is serviced in a molcajete so it gets warm. It was 3/4 other ingredients (1/2 mango) and at most, 1/4 fish. It was very sweet because of the mango. A place that is pricey by local standards and specializing in seafood, should perfectly cook seafood. The fish was horribly overcooked and tasted and smelled spoiled. The corn was a loose sauce, but portions of the kernals remained hard. It had a flavor I could not place. It tasted how a cloying perfume smells. It was not the epazote; we love epazote. The risotto was decent, but a bit undercooked. The fish in the risotto was much less overcooked. The other seafood in it was good except the mussels tasted bad. We had asked about the lava cake when we ordered originally. The waiter said it would take about 15 minutes to make. We decided not to order it because we were afraid it would not be good. We watched for our waiter for 20 minutes after our meal and never saw him--so ordering the lava cake would have meant waiting a really long time. We finally had to ask another wait staff for our check. We paid about $85 USA dollars for the meal after tip.More

Our evening started out a bit awkward because we arrived at a very busy time. When the manager noticed things weren't quite right he came to our table and went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of...very impressive to see...an establishment run by such a professional! The food and drink were very good and we proceeded to have a lovely evening. Thanks Alex...we highly recommend Punta Corcho for a top notch dining experience in Puerto Morelos!More

Excellent second floor location with good views of the central park/plaza and toward the beach, covered open air seating, and a cozy space... Not too big, not too small. Good and attentive service. Ceviche was fresh and tasty (thai inspired), and the fish tacos were...a 10/10. Paired with cold beer and good company, it was a perfect memorable meal. Then we added coffees and their strawberry crisp. Another 10/10! Delicious end to delicious food. After looking at a few other places, finding this place was a wonderful surprise for just the kind of meal we'll talk about in the future.More

We walked in twice. Though popular - other places were very quiet as it was low season, I would book if not in low season.
