“Amazing authentic cuisine”
Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

A little off the beaten path in a true neighborhood in Cozumel. Unbelievable food with a very welcoming atmosphere. The proprietor spent time with us explaining the legend behind the drink at the end of the meal. Appetizers and main course were perfect. I would say best meal we have had in Cozumel and worth a second trip. May be a short taxi ride from wherever you are (a long walk from hotels on the main strip). But don't let this deter you. Worth the time.

“Love the servers (and the food)”
Reviewed August 15, 2014

The food as always was very well done, but I think the best part of El Moro for me is the staff. The waiter has been there for years and he treats us like part of the family.

It's always a good time!

“One of my favorite places”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

It is not a fancy place, it is located in a neighborhood. Take taxi otherwise it will be a mighty long walk.The service and food was outstanding. The owner told us the history about the restaurant. He puts his heart and soul into El Moro. We left with more friends,full bellies and hugs. Can't wait to return again.
