Rey treated us like family! The food was fantastic, so we all (9) came back the next day. I especially liked the Zocarias, and the Coconut ice cream.

El Moro is one of our go to places in Cozumel. The food is excellent and plentiful, the staff are friendly and very attentive. All of the ingridents are high quality and you can tell the food is prepared lovingly. We have never had a bad dish there and the biggest problem is decision which delicious dish to order. The...

We went to this casual busy restaurant twice. The service is friendly and attentive, although on our second visit they were short staffed, especially for a Friday night. The Sunday night special was pork-- roasted to an incredible stage of tenderness. Friday night the shrimp were enormous. I ordered them grilled and got six huge succulent butterflied shrimp.

My family of three and our friends' family of four recently enjoyed a delicious dinner at El Moro. We were staying at an all-inclusive resort, but the food was lacking so we were anxious to get some good Mexican food. El Moro was all we could have asked for and more! It was New Year's Eve and we were a... More

We visited twice last week - although they were very busy the service was outstanding both times. If you want an experience and outstanding food served by wonderful people this place cant be beat, if you are in a hurry to eat - suggest coming early or later in the evening. You will need to take a Cab - too... More

Our party of 16 was treated like royalty, the food and drinks were outstanding and the total bill was extremely reasonable. I highly recommend El Moro and we will return.

After much hype, we were slightly disappointed. Slow service - the staff seemed overwhelmed by the arrival of a couple of large groups - and the food was OK but not super awesome.

We tried to go here for lunch during a Port stop on a cruise. First, in December, Trip Advisor said El Moro is open at 12:30. It doesn't open until 1:00 and is closed Thursdays. We arrived at 12:30 to find the correct hours. It is in the middle of nowhere in a residential area that is very run down.... More

I've been visiting Cozumel every two or three years for about fifteen years running. Each time, I visit El Moro. And each time, it's the best meal of the trip. The staff is welcoming, friendly, and fun. The food is fantastic. I recommend getting the mixed seafood plate and the fajitas to share for the table. It's off the beaten... More
