“3 for 3- Great food, prices and portions!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is a newer addition in Puerto Morelos, and we tried it out twice. The menu is not exactly the regional Yucatan food, but a mix of other Mexican dishes found elsewhere. It was very busy both times we went, but still we got our meals in a reasonable amount of time. The decor is traditional and very colorful and fun. It is a large restaurant so can accomodate larger groups together. They have a front, sidewalk area, an inside area, bar, and a large outdoor patio in the back. Very good price point, very large portions, and both times are meals were really good. I had the dish with a mole sauce that had chicken in the corn tortillas (can't remember the name) One of the best Mole's on the Yucatan yet. Second meal, I had the Pulpo Anejo, It was MARVELOUS! Best octopus I can ever remember having, and such a huge plate of it, I could hardly eat it all. We were there for live blues with Cooker John from Minnesota, had soooo much fun.

“Not recommended.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

We went on a Monday night when a lot of other places are closed. They had a nice set up and lots of room. However, they didn't have any seafood but didn't tell us until we ordered three different types. The service was extremely slow but our waiter was nice and sympathetic. It seemed like the kitchen was the main problem. The food was mediocre. Chips and pico were good. Enchiladas were not so good. Fajitas were alright. Just nothing special.

“Not worth another visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

We had the oregano chicken. It was average. It came with a small salad and it was far too salty for our taste. Not worth another visit.

“Good food, Good fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

The patio at El Sabor was lots of fun on this Saturday night. Fun entertainment, everybody dancing and having a great ol' time! The crowd seemed to have the Canadian provinces covered and all just happy not to be knee deep in snow.

The menu is very authentic and has a lot of tasty Oaxacan dishes. We discovered it on our last night which was a shame but we are leaving on a high! I
