We visited here on our first morning here for breakfast. The service was fast and friendly, the food was very very flavourful and the portions large. The price might have been a bit higher than other places but still well below North American rates. We would definitely go back.

Never had a bad meal in Peurto Morelos...some better than others naturally, but nothing like this awful place. Both our meals were basically inedible and unfortunately the very nice and efficient server had to bear the brunt of our dissatisfaction . Avoid this place as there are so many other very good places deserving of the business. Also I am... More

We had a late dinner at Dona Triny's. I ordered the garlic fish filet. It wasn't a large meal but certainly adequate. (Always a treat to have fresh fish!) Taco chips were complimentary..and I had a large lemonade. Service was fast and friendly..very good selection and prices.

We were hoping for some real authentic food ,while it was good we found the food seemed more like touristy food. Given the location across from the central plaza we weren't surprised. The restaurant is really cute and clean, and the staff wonderful. I ordered chicken mole, the mole was just poured on top when it is far better tasting... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and each time, the food was delicious and authentic. Don't expect fancy, but expect fresh. The service was good - and - yes - as reported, there is no A/C. So, eat on the sidewalk, catch a breeze and watch the scenery.

We weren't really feeling seafood, which as you would expect is mostly what is found around the main square. I'd done quite a bit of research on trip advisor and have stuck to the higher rated restaurants so really had not looked at this one. I would say the reviews are spot on. We ordered chimichangas, quesadillas and chile rellenos.... More

All the service is really good, this guys are so friendly and the food is so typical, Mexican scramble eggs or divorced eggs, the orange juice is so fresh and the little place is so lovely.
