Description: Dockside alongside the local fishing boats we are fortunate to get first pickings of the best catches of each and every day. Outside Deck Terrace seating as well as inside. Open from 5pm. Open MONDAY through Saturday. Enchanting nautical theme. Good spot for any occasion. Fully stocked bar where you can stop by and have a drink (Martini, Manhatten, Margarita, Daquiris, Mai Tai, Pina Coladas, Beer, Smoothies or a variety of wines by the glass or bottle etc), and also enjoy the view!. A good choice when its hot, there is an air conditioned area. A good choice if its cold, there is heating to make it cozy and warm, a good choice if its raining as it is under a roof. For lovers of good food, a nice attention and romantic evenings, find Pelican Point next to Aventuras Club, Puerto Aventuras Marina. Closed SUNDAYS and for the months of September and october.

“DELIGHTFUL EXPERIENCE!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This restaurant is a MUST when visiting not only Puerto Aventuras but Playa del Carmen as is only 15 minutes south. From the minute you walk in, you get welcomed by a romantic, fine dining ambiance & friendly staff. In addition, the passion for service from the staff and Mr. Guillermo (the owner) is outstanding! We tried the avocado with shrimp, fish sashimi which I highly recommend and for main course you MUST try the rabbit (Im mouthwatering just remembering it!). We also tried the chicken with pistachios, amazing! To finish, key orange pie.. yes.. orange! (a must too). The wine selection is also pretty spectacular and what we loved is that you wont find the wines in a shop... very unique! I recommend the Rosso de Montalcino but there's an option for everyone. This has been one of the BEST culinary experiences ever! Thank you and we are looking forward to repeat this delightful experience. Luis & Blanca :)

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The atmosphere was lovely; the food and service exceptional. The owner was a delightful host who clearly takes pride in his new establishment. We accepted his recommendations for everything from appetizer to desserts and were not dissapointed. Pricier than other restaurants in PA but well worth it. I highly recommend this restaurant!

“May be the best food in Puerto Aventuras”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

This restaurant is a lovely palapa on the marina a little further north than most of the other restaurants in Puerto. Guillermo (Memo), the owner, used to operate close to the highway at Mi Parador and has now moved to this much better location. The feeling is more upscale as are many of the dishes. Memo is an attentive host and will reel off a huge variety of specials from memory, each one sounding better than the last! The food is fresh, nicely presented and Memo's obvious passion for food shines through loud and clear. And if you want something not on the menu, 9 times out of 10 Memo will accommodate your request.
Has been very good to see this restaurant busy throughout the winter season and that is just another sign that this is a great place to dine in Puerto and indeed in the Riviera Maya.

“The best we have at puerto Aventuras”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Am a 25 year part time resident here at puerto Aventuras. We finally have a special place to dine. The overall food quality at the resort is vastly improved, but nothing comes close to the dining experience at Guillermo's new establishment. The atmosphere, furnishings, and level of service are only surpassed by the quality of the meals. It's the place for that special night out or when you just want a really excellent meal.

“ALWAYS OUR RESTAURANT OF CHOICE IN PA!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

We had the wonderful opportunity to enjoy 7 dinners at Pelican Point during our last visit to Puerto Aventuras!
It is always our restaurant of choice in the PA marina!
Guillermo and staff welcome us with open arms and provide friendly, professional and excellent service!
The cuisine is always delicious and beautifully prepared and presented!
We love the setting! Lovely breezes and numerous pelicans perched nearby among the fishing boats!
On one occasion, we were celebrating a birthday! Guillermo had decorated our table to acknowledge the occasion!
We will be returning soon!
