Never disappoints. Come here every trip to Cozumel. Ray must be the hardest working human I’ve ever seen but always makes you seem like you’re the most important customer there. Everyone loves Ray. No one leaves without a hug. Can’t recommend any selection over another....More

Best margarita I had in Cozumel and the grilled shrimp were delicious and huge. Terrific service and the local ambience is what we were looking for in Cozumel instead of the "tourist" joints. A bit out of the way, but worth it.

Words cannot describe how wonderful El Moro is. Not only is the food fantastic, Ray is one of my favorite people. The conch ceviche is the best on the island. We talk about El Moro and Ray all year and can't wait to get back.

Usually, I wouldn't go to a place that caters to the American crowd ... but given the reviews, we gave it a try. And it did not disappoint! They have an expansive menu that covers everything from what the kids would recognize/eat to what adults...More

Sorry, we ahve never run into that problem. Since restaurant is in an out of the way location it is a good idea to call and check hours. Sorry for inconvenience.
