This is a great place to stop for lunch while you are walking around town. The bacon wrapped shrimp was delicious and all the sides were fresh and tasty. Everyone enjoyed! The beer is cold, the price is right, the staff are attentive and friendly. You won't go wrong here.

The food was great here. I had the grilled shrimp and my wife had the fish Mayan style. Both were great and we would recommend it to anyone.

My wife had quesadillas and they where very greasy and the filling was very low quality shrimps , most likely well frozen and defrosted in a hurry.The guacamole was good and so the salsa. Myself had some grilled fish that was bathing in oil, I dont honestly know how... More

We always come back to this place, marvelling at how good the cooking is, especially the shrimp. They do them so many ways - this time we had them in a cilantro sauce - creamy and perfectly prepared. This place serves the greatest salsa and chips, with an assortment of 5 sides, all complimentary. Two people can eat (with their... More

Very welcoming atmosphere ... patient, friendly staff. Sit wherever you want ... some tables outside next to street, some "inside" (open air, but cool thatched roof. Good for large groups ... they'll move tables and chairs around to accommodate you. Floor is sand, so consider this part of the beach vibe. Playset / play area for children. Some of the... More

We had heard great things about El Pesquero so we saved it for our last night in Puerto Morelos. My husband had the lobster tail and I had some giant bacon-wrapped shrimp. The seafood was phenomenal. We both thought the bacon-wrapped shrimp was actually even better than the lobster. The sides were just OK, but we were there for the... More

Great service and the bacon wrapped shrimp will blow your socks off. We had one to share for an appetizer then ordered another to share for a meal. Great service and great food. They close at 8:00 so you have to go early.

We recently visited Puerto Morelos and tried this restaurant for the first time. The service was better than average, and we did not feel rushed even though we arrived not long before they closed for the evening. The restaurant was set up like a beach bar with sand floors and plastic tables and chairs, with a palapa roof covering the... More
