“Very nice surpise, very fresh seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

We went snorkeling off the pier and then walked around Puerto Morelos to do a little shopping. The vendors all sort of pushed us to go here, and we were standing there reluctantly staring at the place when another group of gringos walked out and raved about it.

We were absolutely not disappointed. The fish was fresh. I had a fresh caught grouper filet, the rest of our group had different seafood burritos. The guacamole was fresh, the drinks were fruity and tasted good. The view was spectacular. Everything was clean and it was a great experience.

“Post snorkel terrific lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Funky spot tied into snorkel trip to reef. Service with a smile. We had freshest grouper sautéed with garlic and Mexican peppers which were sweet. All in all a nice surprise in a little place we might have walked on by.
Wrestling theme made it all the more interesting for us. We loved it and we tend to be food snobs.

“Breakfast with a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

What a great view to enjoy your breakfast! I had an omelet that was tasty but the fruit smoothie was the best! They have a list of interesting combinations of fruit for their smoothies.

Service was excellent!

“You can do better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

This place is part of a chain that started in Madrid in 2000 and one can tell. Bland so called Mexican food that you could eat anywhere. I would suggest spending your money on an authentic experience.

“Pleasent Suprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We asked a local vendor for a good restaurant and he walked us to La Panza es Primero! We sat right by the window looking out at the water! Very peaceful and beautiful. The restaurant itself is very spacious so you could bring a big group there! I loved the decor of wrestler posters all over the walls! The key point to the whole trip is the food!!! We ordered a bowl for two full of Chicken, Steak, and Chorizo. We still had leftovers to take home and the food was absolutely mouth watering good! We still have some time left on our trip and want to go back for a similar bowl full of seafood. Would recommend popping in for a bite to eat. VERY reasonable prices as well!!!!!
