“Great place!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

A large group of us from Nova Scotia ate here for lunch while visiting Puerto Morelos in April 2013. It was so nice to eat together while enjoying the beautiful ocean breeze and the view of the ocean. The food was great, the beer was cold and the prices were great as well. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend that you stop here if you're in the area.

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Stayed in Hotel Ocean Turquesa for first 2 weeks of June 13. Wanted to find local Mexican restaurant in Puerto Morelos and after trying a few this met the standard. Food and Service was outstanding very friendly staff including the Manager and Owner couldn't have made us more welcome. So good went 4 times to escape all inclusive! Great spot on beach with a chill out atmosphere. Loved all the food Tacos were superb!
Not to be missed!

“Not budget worthy”
Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

Here on June 5 2013. Great view of the ocean but not worth the bill we were handed. 80 pesos for a pina colada is ridiculous. If it was a good drink I'd be happy to pay for it and not complain. Wont be back.

“The perfect culmination of food, atmosphere and friendly people!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We came here on our second night and we were hooked! Incredible beach side view, delicious chips and homemade sauces unlike anywhere else in town! Helpful smiling staff willing to assist clueless gringos like us! Highly recommended, walk home on the beach! Try the carpaccio!
