Tried their mixed ceviche, and even the small size was a meal. Well done, but I prefer my ceviche without jalapenos - the menu did not mention that it would be spicy. My friend had the grouper, but it turned out the waiter was mistaken...More

We were looking for a place for seafood and pick this one because there were a number of locals already seated. The next day, our relative who resides in Puerto Morelos took us there again because she thinks it's the best in town.

Everything was reasonable. Lobsters were not in season. We had a beautiful lunch and plenty of 2/1 drinks and our bill for both including tip was less than $50.

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
