We were told to come here and we were not disappointed. We both had the chicken burritos. What a treat.

We were looking for a place for seafood and pick this one because there were a number of locals already seated. The next day, our relative who resides in Puerto Morelos took us there again because she thinks it's the best in town.

Very good,unpretentious restaurant serving only the freshest fish and first-class lobster. Great service, good margaritas and, at lunchtime, obviously where the serious local eaters go.(and, yes, they have T shirts for sale which is one step up from the Hard Rock Cafe !)

Its about 5 kilometers taking the shortest route by road, which kind of winds along the ocean. Taxis are pretty cheap and its in the heart of the city. Its worth the trip into town to see everything and eat local.
