We were on the search for lion fish and found DK Puerto Morales. The lion fish is excellent. The shrimp also excellent. The owner is charming and the service is excellent. This is a must when in Puerto Morales!

We went here 2 times during our stay in Puerto Morelos. Loved the shrimp tostados! White wine not the best. In an old shipping container, fun, creative. Not fancy but good food, good prices.

DK is a MUST stop during your visit to Puerto Morelos. Their food is fantastic! The shrimp tostados are piled high with large shrimp. Also the pulled pork and fish tacos can’t be beat. You will not be disappointed.

Ok. Price. Great. Service. Stupendous. The Chef's Rice Game....Holy. Cow. So much flavor it could be it's own meal. Love this place and can't wait to go back. Also they were playing some extra dope music. Don't walk..run to this spot.

DK does take credit cards, but will pass back to you the 3%-of-cost payment that credit card companies take from the business. His prices are low and you can imagine that 3% off every meal would add up fast. Pay cash and... More
