“A Little Bit Of Argentina In Puerto Morelos”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We, a family of 4 adults passed this restaurant many times during our 2 week stay in PM. It was always packed. We decided to make a reservation & eat our last dinner at La Pirata.

When, we arrived at the reserved time all the table were full. Luckily, a single fellow said we could have his table as he was ready to go.We were seated right beside the parilla. Nice & cosy on a very wet & windy night. We had Spanish red wine to start. 3 New York steaks were ordered, medium rare. They came with salad & baked potatoes. My family loved their dinner. I ordered the garlic shrimp. They were very tasty but a touch over-cooked for my taste. The service was good. I would recommend this restaurant for those that would like a change from Mexican food.

“Great dinner! Great service!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Great dinner at El Pirata! Delicious steak, salad, pasta. Excellent service, along with a very good glass of wine (or two). Really enjoy the little town of Puerto Morelos.

“Average steaks with terrible service!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

They add 10% tips to the bill and it's not noted anywhere. Our total was 355 Pesos (average for what we ate) but we were asked to pay 390 Pesos, inclusive of 10% tips, we then paid with 2 notes of 200Pesos and one of the 2 waiters toke the money and waited for us to leave. As we didn't leave she brought back the change in 1 Peso coins. I would never go back to this place.

It's a pity as the steaks are really not bad and the prices average, additionally the Caballero at the grill is a very nice person.

“Nice place”

Relaxed at the bar one evening and we had mixed drinks and some sangria. Was very good. They played good music as well. Classic hits basically.

“Great little eatery near the beach. Arghh!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Passed this place a three in the afternoon. Ordered squid tacos and shrimp tacos both in garlic. In seconds the place smelled like cooking garlic and the meal was done. It was a perfect light lunch. Great food, great hosts, and a very attractive pirate-style atmosphere. Possibly El Pirata only seats about twenty people which keeps things fun and personal.
