The food is great. Regular Coz visitors always visit this place. Expats eat here. Locals eat here. Thank God it's out there on 75th or it would be packed by tourists and the food would cost twice as much. :) The menu is fairly extensive and you have to ask what some of the styles mean, but it's worth the...

We had the fish and shrimp special, the Cuban steak and both were excellent. Our daughter thought the chicken fingers were delicious and it was a very generous portion .Great service by a wonderful waiter (Ray?). We will return!

My wife and I have been coming to Cozumel for years, and our first restaurant visit is always El Moro. This family restaurant serves delicious seafood and Mexican dishes, but is made memorable by the amazingly friendly, warm welcome by Ray Chacon, whose family runs this delightful establishment. The food is tasty and reasonably priced... Make sure you try Papa... More

Recommended by a friend who has visited Cozumel a lot. Truly a great experience, wonderful staff and good, tasty food and strong cocktails. The clear garlic soup is a great starter and coconut ice cream to finish.
