Our stop at El Nicho was okay but not what I was expecting based on the reviews. Service was very slow and found the prices we very high for the food that we got. Not saying it was terrible but I don’t think I would...More

Ate breakfast twice and were extremely pleased. Great food, especially the waffles! Service and attention by Laura was first class. Very clear why it is the number 1 restaurant in Puerto Morales!!!

We ate here twice for breakfast and both times loved our food. Especially the huevos rancheros. Try the jaimaica juice, it was to die for and refreshing and comes with a spoon to get at the berries! Thier coffees are very good here also.

Right on the square. Great little spot squeezed in between two similar-looking restaurants. Small, less than a dozen tables. Nice menu, good service. Not particularly cheap, but very good food. I believe they serve breakfast all the time, even after noon.

We ordered a fruit salad, coffee, and chilaquiles. There was nothing remarkable, though the presentation for all three were nice. The fruit salad was small and the chilaquiles acceptable. The service was friendly and attentive. Cash only.

This is a great breakfast place. La Sirena is better for a bar/dinner scene. It is located across the square from El Nicho.

el Nicho is a beautiful place to spend a leasurely brunch. It is across from the park and has a peak-a-boo view of the ocean. The room is full of lovely sites and sounds from beautifully presented food, to great music. The walls feature artwork from local artists and the service is top notch. As of December 1, 2017,we are excited to be serving dinner featuring a delicious Caribbean influenced cuisine. We look forward to seeing you in this piece of paradise.
