“One of our favorites!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Our daughter and her family live in Puerto Morelos, so we are lucky to go there several times a year. We are frequent visitors to El Nicho when we are in Puerto Morelos. Our last visit was several times from Jan 21 to Feb. 13. We have never been disappointed here. They try out recipes, such as the waffles, until they are perfected, and their menu reflects this. Everything from the waffles to the Huevos Mexicana are excellent! Always made from fresh ingredients, and served hot.
Their reputation is well-known, so if you don't go early, you may have to wait for a table.
We also ate lunch here several times. I had salads, which were served freshly made and my husband had a fish dish that he loved.
They certainly know how to create great food, and a good dining experience!

“Delicious way to start your day!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

El Nicho serves delicious breakfast fare with warm, friendly smiles. We had huevos rancheros with fried eggs, one member of our party preferred scrambled which was accommodated without any question at all. A filling, freshly prepared and more than tasty meal with which to start our day. Our beverages were equally as enjoyable - the lemonade with blueberries, fresh orange juice and cold tea rojo (hibiscus flowers, cranberry and strawberry) perfectly complemented our meal. We enjoyed it so much that we went back on our final day for another meal. The staff is warm and friendly, chatty if you are interested in engaging them. The location is perfect for people watching on the square as you finish the final sips of your healthful beverage.
