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.

“Truly a 5 star experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Both of our meals were fantastic; we had the fresh wahoo and surf & turf. Service was impeccable. This is our favorite place to eat out while in PA. We'll be back next year for sure.

“5 star dining experience”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

This is hands down the high class dining establishment in PA. While it is also the most expensive, the care and service they put into a meal make it well worth it. Huge drink selection, a ridiculous amount of food options, and best of all some meats and fish that is difficult to find elsewhere. The owner has obviously put a lot into the facility as it was really beautiful, especially in the evening. If price isn't a concern, you won't be disappointed. A real treat...

“Best in Puerto Aventuras?”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Based on what my family and I saw, this is arguably the only real fine dining restaurant in Puerto Aventuras. Situated a bit away from the other restaurants in the marina, we found this place almost by accident. It was early in our visit and we hadn’t done any research on the options – we were just walking along the marina and exploring our options. So many of the other places we passed… and passed on, the nearly accosted you when you walked by. So we kept on walking. And pretty much at the end of the marina we found Pelican Point.

It was a bit more upscale that what we had anticipated, but we took a shot. Gustavo was our waiter and he took excellent care of us. The only thing I had that I didn’t like was the drink I ordered. I opted for the Blue Margarita… I’m not sure what made it blue, but from the taste of it, it could have either been anti-freeze or cat urine. Actually, I think I picked up maybe an anise flavor. I really dislike anise/licorice. So moving on.

We got the Ceasar salad for starters. The dressing was prepared from scratch at our table by Gustavo. It was excellent. For the main course, we all ordered fresh fish. I got the wahoo. I’d never had it before and it was AMAZING. They served in as medallions that were seared and coated with sesame seeds (among other things). The texture was almost like scallops. The flavor was excellent. It was served with some green beans that were in a coconut flavored sauce – loved that too. My wife and daughters got the mahi mahi and they were also very happy.

Pelican Point is pricier than the other more touristy fare that you find in the heart of the marina, but it’s certainly worth it. If you’re planning to have at least one night out for something special in Puerto Aventuras, I don’t think you can do any better than Pelican Point.

Great wine list. Delicious fresh grilled fish. The owner personally served us and made sure every diner felt special. Wish we had a restaurant like this back home.
