Great staff & good food. Wonderful spot to watch people. Sax player in evening . Remember this isn’t an aged American beef. But good for Mexico

Top quality fillet mignon cooked to perfection for a third of the price back home in Canada. Friendly staff and quaint Mexican atmosphere with live music. Don’t forget to ring the bell on the way out.

We have been coming to Mexico for 20 plus years and I've never ordered a steak. We both ordered bacon wrapped fillets and could not have been more please. Cooked perfectly and taste was great Place was packed and everyone there seemed to be loving...their food and enjoying the environment. Will definitely be back.More

I ordered a t-bone steak and it was undercooked and like rubber with a ton of fat and bone. I could barely chew it. When they took my plate away he asked how it was and I told him. No one came to my table...to talk to me about it. When I got my bill I spoke to my waiter and asked if they were going to do anything about it he said no, I should have sent it back. Fair enough but I am one of those people who doesn't send their food back. The dinner experience has been lost if I have to wait for another meal. And no one apologized and all I got was dirty looks. I won't go back.More

The best value for money restaurant in PM where great staff, good ingredients and a proper BBQ provided for an excellent meal on both our visits. Their offer included a good range of large succulent beef steaks and salmon all cooked over real charcoal. The...prices, for the quality of food, are very good and we have already booked our next visit. The large bell (hanging from the tower) is regularly rung as departing customers show their appreciation of the meal. Saul and his team strike a perfect balance between friendliness and professionalism.More

This place never disappoints!! We went twice. Empanadas, steak and pasta to die for. Love the “Alfredo” pasta as well as the filet. Tried the tampiquena too. Good wine. Good music. Don’t miss out

Second time here, and service and food are consistently amazing!! Best meal we've had while at Puerto Morelos- bottle of wine, Ceasars salad, pasta and steak. My husband and I split everything and it couldn't have been a better evening. Thank you to all the...staff for their hard work!! Including the saxophone player - such a smooth sound! We will be back!More

This is the second time I have eaten at El Campanario. The steaks are always fabulous and the service is second to none. Be sure to ring the bell before you leave to tell others how great the experience was. Can’t wait to return.

We were here earlier this year and was so disappointed our favorite PM restaurant was closed. Thrilled to find them in their new location in the heart of “restaurant row”. The grilled ribs are a favorite and it was a pleasure to ring the bell...again. Planning to have dinner again before we leave.More

Had a great meal here and was recommended the rib eye by another diner. They were totally right and it was one of the best I've ever had. Lovely service and the owner was so friendly. We even liked the sax player playing some well...known songs as an accompaniment to dinner. Very well priced and close to the main square in Puerto Morelos.More

Excellent steak at very reasonable prices and great service. The empanadas were really good too. What a find! We both had the filete - one with peppercorn sauce and one with blue cheese. I would have been happy if I’d been served it at a...high end NYC steak joint and it was only MX$300 (about US$15)! If you’re a meat eater I would highly recommend a visit.More
