“Fun”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Went for a graduation party. The food was great, the mariachi band was hilarious (got the crowd going) their margaritas were good and food was delicious. Best for families or older crowds.

“Mayan Vacation”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

We found this place my chance. We were looking for another restaurant that we could not find and saw this place so we took a chance. They had 2 large groups dinning but it did not slow down our service. The food was fantastic, fresh seafood. Live music was happening with a great singer and back up band. Would definitely go back again next time in Cancun.

“Decent food, better prices”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We went to El Mortero without having a reservation, due to the changed dinner plans. The restaurant is located right in the midst of the night-club district by Coco Bongo and Palazzo. The dining area is spacious offering a typical Mexican decor, quite reminiscent to On The Border, Chilli's and other US chain restaurants of the TexMex variety. Depending on one's taste, the Mariachi band can be a tad too annoying, but we were lucky to avoid the at-your-table serenades. The service is, however, pleasant and efficient. The food is good too, with the prices surprisingly lower than the other comparable establishments in the Zona Hoteleira. The Mixed Grille for Two was really good and comes highly recommended. One bit of advise: get the food from the grille pot to your plates ASAP, for the banana leaves get burned rather quickly and your food might end up falling in between the grille openings, straight on the charcoals.

“Great experience. Good food and service.”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This was included in our all inclusive. You must make reservations the day of your visit before 3pm. One night we ate at 6pm and the last night our reservation was for 8:15pm

“Loco Mariachi (song)”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

Return to this restaurant every year we go to Cancun. Food and drinks are good, Mariachi band is very good. Have them play 'Loco Mariachi'!
