We had dinner there AGAIN as the food is exceptionally fresh and tasty. We met the owner/chef and she ended up taking us to her Jungle Garden to see all the fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs. She plans to start a "farm to table" experience at the jungle garden in the next few months and we can't wait. Exceptional food quality here and friendly staff. Have dinner here. WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!!

Wow! I flew in late to Cancun & got to PM late...El Pirata was just a 5 minute walk from my place so I had a late supper there. Was craving some fish tacos. Wow! Didn't realize one could experience, "GOD" through fish tacos!!!! Just amazing. Best fish tacos I've ever had, to say the least. Service is superb...very friendly staff, very accommodating. Owner is super nice & walks around to make sure everything is good. We tried several restaurants in PM & they're all good....but we kept going back to El Pirata because it was just the BEST. End of each meal we were served a shot of some 'peanut/sugar cane alcohol' concoction. Sounds questionable BUT....most incredibly delicious 'digestif' EVER! We wanted to buy a whole bottle! But they make it there at the restaurant. LOVE this place & will go back next time we're in PM. Highly recommended.

the place looks not very inviting, we were there for very late lunch and were the only ones in the place so not quite sure how busy it is, fish tacos are pretty good.

Puerto Morelos doesn't seem to do posh! The restaurants are very simple. However don't let that deceive you. This place is amazing. So friendly. Thanks to Thomas and Claire for the great service and being so caring.The food was stunning and the list of wines is fab with french wines-the firt time I have seen these in Mexico.the prawns were super fresh .Loved the music!!
