This was a winner for the four of us, so much so that we went back twice.

The view and location are worth the price in themselves - especially if you head for the top deck. But with them comes Mexican and seafood to delight. And all at with efficient and friendly service and at a price that can make you pinch yourself with delight.

In particular, the shrimp tacos and the shrimp broshetas came as servings that needed to be shared. And the welcome side order of fried plantains topped everything off nicely.

The best margaritas we’ve found in Puerto Morelos! Fresh seafood ... check out the catch of the day. Great chips and array of sauces are complimentary. Terrific service. Super casual atmosphere. Always see locals eating here ( that’s a good sign).

Be sure to ask for your check when you’re ready to leave (they consider it bad manners to bring it without you asking for it).

We had only one night in Puerto Morelos. When we discovered that the seafood restaurant we had originally chosen for dinner was closed we went to plan B: stroll the charming little town til another spot caught our eye. When we reached El Pesquero the plastic chairs in the sand seemed familiar and we realized we had been here before (we were taken to lunch here about 6 years ago by our dive guide who had the mariachis sing to me when he realized it was my birthday. A lovely memory!)

The margaritas were excellent, strong and reasonably priced. Don't let the laid back atmosphere fool you. Our server was an old school professional with a thorough knowledge of the menu and a quiet efficiency. We followed his suggestion to order the smaller sized mixto seafood ceviche and it was more than enough - and delicious!
