“Good Service, Authentic Food and Fair Prices”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

We stayed in town just for one night, as this is our stop over before heading south. We were looking for authentic Mexican, since we had just arrived and it was late. We were very happy to stumble upon La Panza es Primero, as the food was extremely good and the service was excellent!! The usual chips and salsa to start with and then two chicken fajita's plus margaritas did the job.
We will definitely eat there again. Our new best place for Mexican in Puerto Morelos!!

“Great location and food”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

The location and view alone would bring me back, even if the food was just decent, but the food is good. Their cream of lobster soup was to die for, and very filling.

Drinks were really good, nothing was from a pre-mix, and service probably the best in town, our waiter really took care of us.
