WE were there in Jan and Feb. of this year and unfortunatly found El Merkadito late in our trip. Great resturant on the beach with beautiful views. and very good calamari and fresh fish. Wife says the drinks were not bad either. Enjoy

The Best places for Sea Food in Puerto Morelos. Went there twice in one week and the Sea Bass. Best Sea Bass I have ever had. The Dining on the beach with a cool breeze was great.

The view is definitely what makes this place special. It's beautiful. Right on the beach, looking out across the ocean. The food on the other hand is fine, but does not match the view unfortunately. We had an ok meal there, fish was well cooked, if a little tasteless. Perhaps there are better things on the menu than what we had on the day we visited. It's more tourist prices than at the other end of town too. Definitely go for a drink and the view.

We found this place about 4 years ago when we first went to Puerto Morelos. We luckily came in from the beach otherwise we probably would not have entered. This place never disappoints. The food is always excellent. I highly recommend the calamari and nachos. Definitely, need to have a margarita in the tin cup. They stay nice and cold. I would highly recommend this place.

Nothing better then seafood on the beach, and we have great service and food all around, across 9 people.... Lobster was a little pricey at $45 USD, but we were on vacation and were in the mood for it. Great breeze out there along the water and a break from the mosquitoes.... def worth a visit!
