Reviewed July 11, 2013

we have been here for three different trips. its perfect. Dont go to cozumel without eating here. The service is a big part of what makes it so special. you will see the same people working there every time you go. They show you they really appreciate you coming by.
the food is wonderful and made to order. sit up front near the street .

“Consistently great, very reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

A group of us had dinner and we ordered a variety of different things. Everyone was very happy with what we ate, what we drank and also happy with the bill when it came. This can be difficult to find as it's not on a main street but kind of hidden in a residential area. If you don't know Cozumel well, take a taxi the first time. They are open from 1pm to 11pm daily except they are closed on Thursday. If you know Cozumel, go out Juarez past Ave 65 and turn left just before the Pemex gas station. Go 2 blocks and turn right (you will see a little white sign that says "El Moro"), go one block and turn right again. El Moro is down the block, on the right side of the street. The restaurant has been around for years and years. The address is actually Ave. 75 Bis north between 2 and 4.

“Cockroach in pineapple drink”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We went to this restaurant with my family, because it is highly recommended. However, the experience was terrible. There was a big Cockroach in the drink, which is nasty. I know the place is cheap to eat, but just think twice if you care about cleanliness. Also, how careless to not to see that a cockroach went into the drink. Worst service ever.

“Great Food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

The food is great. The fish is always fresh. The owner greeted us and made us feel more than welcome. This place is hard to find, but worth the effort. No doubt a few other tourists may greet you as well.
