In spending time around Puerto Morelos, my wife and I have noticed Los Gauchos seems to be a lively spot. We finally found the opportunity to have a light meal there. We found it to be comfortable and the food pleasing, however, our waitress was completely inattentive. Our evening moved painfully slow, having to get other staff members to ask... More

We went for an early dinner, nice atmosphere and decor. Very friendly staff and great empanadas and pizza. The steaks were very good and cooked authentically like Argentinian meat should be prepared. I liked the freak tea and hot bread. Must eat here and enjoy all its flavor, tremendous.

We travel almost every summer to Cancun area and when we visit Puerto Morelos, we always have lunch here. Pizza is good, steak cuts are good, and the price of food is even better. Service is very personalised, so you really enjoy having lunch here.

We visited on June 5, 2016. We had a pepperoni pizza and a bacon, prune, & cheese empanada. The food was delicious and great price. We were the only customers there at the time (a little after normal lunch time), so we had a quiet lunch, with great service. Their sangria so good. Definitely stop here if you visit Puerto... More

While visiting Riviera Maya we went into the small town of Puerto Morelos because I felt like a slice of pizza. After asking a couple of people and finding that pizza shop closed we walked up to Los Gauchos Restaurant right across from the church. They typically don't open till 4:00 pm but for take out orders they do takeout... More

We were looking for a light meal so ordered a salad and several empanadas to share and it was all good. We ordered the cheese w/ tomato & basil, beef, chicken and seafood baked empanadas. We could have gotten fried instead but we were happy with the baked. Our favorite was the cheese, tomato, and basil. My husband also liked... More

We ate here a couple of times. Good food and great service. The pizza and salads were good, but my favorite were the empanadas. both times we ate here we were serenaded by a wandering musician with a pan flute, it was a nice experience.

We enjoyed our meal at Los Gauchos and went back to seconds but it was closed :) There is a good menu with a wide selection at fair prices. The service is a bit slow, but that is part of the experience. The food was very well prepared and there was a gentleman that stopped by to play music that... More
