Friends drove us here and we had a great experience. The owner greated us with hugs and the ladies a kiss like we were long lost friends. I had grouper and veggies and liked it very much. One lady got shrimp on a wire and it looked amazing. Another had shrimp in a not too spicey red sauce. Prices are... More

After a day on the water fishing we had caught a very nice Mahi Mahi. We agreed that El Moro would be a good place to have cook it. We had enough to have it done two ways and it was the best Mahi I have ever had. friendly service, strong margaritas and good honest food, what more could you... More

We have been to El Moro several times and have never been disappointed. You are greeted by Ray and quickly become family. Service and food is excellent. Even though we stay at an all inclusive we come to El Moro for our evening meals.

If you're on a cruise boat, don't bother because you'll just whine about how hard it is to find. If you have a real sense of adventure and want a killer meal from a family owned restaurant, this place is for you. We're always greeted with a big hug from the owner. The mole is killer and it's a fun... More

A large group of us went there for dinner after a long day diving. We loved the fajitas, lobster, and drinks. We were so impressed that we went back for our last night to celebrate.

Not sure what the disconnect is, but our experience was not so great. The drinks were large but not tasty, and they were overpriced. 2 of our meals were average-to-good, and 2 were plain boring and overcooked. The fellow who waited on us was nice and attentive, but clearly overworked and trying to keep his smile plastered on -- poor... More

Some others in our dive boat mentioned this restaurant, as did our dive master, so we thought we'd try it. Best meal of the week so far! Excellent grouper and shrimp with peppers and onions in a light sauce in foil. The salsa is all hot with habaneros, but when I asked if there was any less hot or waiter... More

We love Cozumel! And a big part of the reason is El Moro. We have been coming to this out-of-the-way restaurant for 20 years. Each time we have been greeted by the owner as if we were daily customers. The authentic food is carefully prepared by the friendly staff. Their personal service beats any other place in Cozumel. The food... More

Everything is wonderful, but I know I'm going to order the Beef Cubano. There's nothing like it. On our last trip, they kindly permitted us to watch them prepare the plantanas. Highlight of our visit!
