The food was well prepared, the service was excellent, view magnificent. I had the garlic butter fish (grouper). The marguerita was not too sweet. Great experience.

We were recently on a cruise and our shopping expert, Amber recommended we eat here. We were skeptical because we figured she got a kick back and perhaps the food wasn't as great as she said, but it lived up to her raves. We ordered different things and while the food wasn't exotic or crazy fancy, it was very well... More

Late lunch, on sparling blue day and had quick, kind service. The grilled grouper with garlic was fine, if bland, not much garlic. Same for the grilled shrimp. The guacamole was fresh and tasty and glad that salt was there to add to our differnet tastes. The waiter was very helpful and quick to respond to our requests. Nice place.

On the way back home we decided to stop for dessert, I had the lemon pie and my sister had the 3 milk cake. Both were very good and tasty.

We had one meal here at dinner time. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere. We sat right near the sidewalk and it had an open air type of feel to it. Good view of the water and ferries going in and out. Food was good and everyone liked their meals and there was eight of us. Drinks were good as well.... More

This place has a great patio on the ocean but I doubt it will win any culinary awards, even though the fresh grilled fish in garlic butter was quite tasty, the octopus ceviche was like rubber. There are other good choices in the area for food, but it's hard to beat the view.

We first visited Puerto Morelos a few years ago and at the suggestion of a friend, we tried Las Palmeras. It is located right on the beach with a beautiful view of the gulf and small fishing boats. You have to walk past a few local colorful storefronts, then through a small entryway to get there. Looking from the outside... More

The very first time we came to Cozumel in 1993 we were only over for a day trip. We had lunch at Las Palmeras because it was such an easy location right by the ferry peer. Over the years we have been back to Cozumel many times and we make a point of going to this restaurant on every visit.... More
