I'm getting hungry just thinking about Mi Cocina. This restaurant in Puerto Morelos is a gem and you'd be missing out if you didn't stop there for breakfast or lunch at least once. The food is fresh and delicious. I ate there multiple times during my trip and every dish I tried I loved. Good vegan options too. The owner,... More

We just returned from 2 weeks vacation and ate many times at Mi Cocina. We had tried it in January and just had to go back. Breakfast is amazing along with all the wonderful fresh juices. We also ordered the ribs, rice, and cole slaw to go and that is a must to try. Very, very good. Can't wait to... More

Came for breakfast based on reviews. Good selection on the menu plus daily specials. I enjoyed the vegetarian "Salbutes". It was excellent. Owner very friendly. I too recommend you give it a try. Open 8-4 for breakfast then lunch. Then open 6-11 for dinner specializing in traditional Mexican dishes.

If you haven't been to Mi Cocina for dinner, do yourself a favor and go! The regular menu is delicious, but the daily specials are amazing! Chef Sebastian will always adjust his specials to meet your needs. My wife and I are vegetarians and he makes us something extraordinary each time such as stuffed squash in red mole sauce, spinach...

We had lunch here on a recent visit to Puerto Morelos and were very happy with all aspects of our meal. The smoothies were fantastic, very refreshing on a warm day. The food was fresh and tasty, the service was friendly, and the atmosphere relaxed. If we lived closer we would be regulars!

We've enjoyed Richard's restaurant in the daytime, and this year, we were very happy to learn that Mi Cocina would be open in the evening. Sebastian, the evening chef, is passionate about cooking, and we have enjoyed several of his delicious and flavourful creations-- burritos, chiles rellenos (the best I've had, and I've made a point of tasting many), pozole,...

Was very happy to see they are now open for dinner. Had dinner there Thursday night. The chicken burrito bowl was delish. We ran out of time this year to get a whole chicken like last year. That is also a great option.
