We have been coming down to PM for many years and always eat dinner more than once at El Pesquero. The owner always remembers us and is very welcoming as is his entire staff. The Ceviche, different preparations of the fish fillet (coriander, mayan, etc.), Fried Calamari, and the drinks are always very delicious and consistent. We never had a... More

We ordered fish tacos expecting fresh fish, but instead were served something that seemed to be like tuna fish. TERRIBLE!!

We were staying at an all-inclusive, but a couple of us went into town for an afternoon. The service and food were so good, we canceled our reservation at the resort the next night and the whole family went back for my son's 13 birthday. The food is great the service fantastic!

I love this authentic Mayan/Mexican seafood restaurant in Puerto Morales. It is less than a block off of the main square. Ate there is twice during out week in Puerto Morales. Had the fish of the day warped in a banana leaf and cooked to perfection is great. Also had the seafood mixote which was equally great.

I asked about conch and was told that they have it so I ordered it and they served my calamari so we did not return. I think that they also charged me for conch. Not funny to me. We plan future trips to Puerto Morelos but I will not return to this place. They seem to think that making fun... More

We stopped in one late afternoon last week for a quick snack and we were pleasantly surprised with some amazing food! By far the best ceviche I've ever eaten and I try it almost everywhere I go, plus the large size was approx $10 USD - great bargain. The calamari rings (fried) were also great and the order was generous.... More
