“Like Family”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

A trip to Cozumel requires at least one meal at El Moro. We love that family owned business and they treat us like family. The food is the best on the island!

“Serves frozen fish as fresh”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

If you have ever eaten farm raised fish (catfish or tilapia) there is a muddy taste to it if not marinated correctly. That's what the fish tasted like at this restaurant. Won't go back again.

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

We have been to El Moro many times and love the food and the service. Yes.....it is off the beaten path - but worth a short drive or a taxi ride. The food is abundant, delicious and inexpensive. The service..................outstanding! You need to try this casual local location!
