Find out what Spanish restaurants to try in Puerto Morelos. Puerto Morelos, a peaceful village on the Mayan Riviera, is a place to experience the genuine Yucatan. Puerto Morelos makes an excellent base if you’re looking for someplace quieter than glitzy hotspots like Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Government eco-reserve designations protect the reef and mangroves—and the village itself—from development. Outdoor options range from thrilling jungle and diving adventures to serene bike rides or moped explorations.
Things to do in Puerto Morelos
This was our third stay at El Dorado Royale Spa Resort in the past five years, and our fifth time to eat at Fuentes. Each year, there have been different chefs and different themes, and they've all been very good. However, this year was exceptionally outstanding! Chef Oscar Trejo presented a menu called "Mexican Trendy." Since this is culinary theatre, it is like watching a cooking show on television. He explained each course and demonstrated how it is made (obviously using short cuts as the beef dish had marinated 12 hours and cooked for 8 hours), but he has the TV version down pat. The presentation was interesting, and the food was scrumptious! The five-course dinner began with Grilled Shrimp Aguachile, followed by Corn Soup with Scallops, then Deconstructed Pozole (my personal favorite!), then Short Rib in Mexican Beer. Dessert was a chocolate biscuit with Mole ganache (ganage in Spanish), sour caramel, hibiscus, and orange and mezcal coulis. Each course was paired impeccably with a different French, New Zealand, or Italian wine, and was followed with a tequila liqueur for the dessert pairing. Sommelier Pete did a superb job with the pairings and the explanations of each. Table settings were elegant and service was professional, efficient, and attentive. Kudos to our server Jairo! The restaurant serves three different set menus on different nights of the week, and I only wish we had reserved for all three of them! We can't wait to do it again! (This is a restaurant at an all-inclusive resort, and is not open to the public.) Oh, and the music by guitarist and vocalist Pablo Larrazabal was beautiful!

This is a beautiful little restaurant in the courtyard of the Casa del Cultura which is a small community centerThey teach dance , exercise etc and have concerts at various timesThe restaurant is in a palapa hut -its neat and clean and you eat at tables in the courtyard or i guess take outExcellent food - more than pleasant serviceThe casa del cultura is just past the OXO convenience store - by the road to the highway - on the far side further away from the sea
Traditional Mexican food restaurant with vegetarian options. At "El Monchis" you could eat peacefully in a fresh and relaxed environment with good music and an exquisite coffee. We offer you an open space terrace so you can enjoy your meal outdoors.
Met the owners one night at a local burger place and decided to try out their place the next day. Best enchiladas with green sauce ever! Wanted to lick the plate. Ask for a spoon. Wife had the Chilaquilas which were awesome as well. Canât wait to return in January.

When Coco owned this it was so fabulous....great flavors and sweet atmosphere...Now with the new owner , it is pretty flavorless, no mushroom delights like Coco made, the portions are smaller, and more reliance on soy meat analogs. The tortillas are not even as good as they used to be. We specifically chose to come back to Puerto Morelos because of this place and the change is disappointing ......we have had fabulous vegan food in other towns, but not here this time. We miss Cocos great food. This is really bland. I wish I didn't have to write this, because we want people to choose vegan food. We came back two times this week hoping it was just an off day ...but it was equally boring and not worth a return.

I really wanted to taste their fish tacos, recommended by my daughter. The place was quiet and the tacos delicious with their side dishes of pico de gallo, guacamole and refried beans.

A group of 24 (9 children included) of us ate here and were all very happy with the food and drink which was excellent. One of us try to pay for food all in one but had 2 separate cards rejected twice meaning a trip to the ATM and an unexpected 10% Mexican surcharge on the transaction.When we were about to leave there were just 2 left behind and were surrounded by about 5 staff who demanded an extra 50 dollars as we hadn't left enough tip, unbeknown to us and not advised, we got told we must leave a 10% tip. We worked it out and we were only short by 10 dollars, we gave that and left, it was a really disappointing and intimidating end to the night. We feel a tip should be indicated or given if we feel like giving.Don't hesitate to go here for food but please ensure you keep at least 10% back for a tip.Hi Jamwal 1974. As the operations manager I was there for your table and we thought you had a very nice evening as well thank you for that. I don't remember anybody 'demanding' a tip. We also only had 2 waiters and myself (Raul) working so I'm not sure who the other people who surrounded you were. I'm very sorry the Credit Card machine was malfunctioning that day it was a regional outage and we spent hours on the phone with the bank in the afternoon trying to fix it before dinner service.Of course we would ask you for full payment if you didn't pay us enough to cover the check, as would any business I know of. The check was approximately (more or less) $300 Euros and if you felt any dissapointment from the server staff for not receiving any tip for serving 24 people (including 9 children), I take full responsibility and will review your comments tonight with them.We would never DEMAND a tip. If we demanded tips and acted like that, we wouldn't have the extensive clientele we value so much. It is customary as servers often work as a second job to make money to provide for their family and/ or expenses. In Europe the server staff often makes as much as 5x the salary as they do in the Americas, but the service staff on this side of the Atlantic make their money with tips. 15%-20% is the most common range for good to great service, but 10% is not unheard of. Thank you for your comments and I will follow up with you in a private message.
