"El Moro is the sort of eatery that plays to a Rick Steves sort of traveler, the kind who wants to eat like a local and have a conversation with the people behind the food. It’s off the island’s main strip, providing open-air dining in what was once the owner’s home".

The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

Go east on the traversal from the caracol on 65.  Turn left just before the Pemex.  Make the second right and then the first right. It is on the right.  Very orange.....

We always eat there.  I never have seen a man that can smile that wide.  I have a lot pics of him.  GREAT seafood!

How about Ray and the story of the Xtabentun.  The Ray version. 

 

Also a nice place to host a birthday party 

 

That help a little?

I was at El Moro on Saturday night. The guys were over the moon about the article- they are going to enlarge and frame it so it will be on display. I had the fish Vera Cruz and my friend had the shrimp on a wire. Our dinners were definitely prepared with love.

I saw this in the Minneapolis Star Tribune paper, and showed it to my wife.  We will be going there sometime after we arrive Feb 10 and staying for 10 days.  Looking forward to it!

You won't regret it! The fish Vera Cruz is great, but so is everything else I've had there.  Just being in that place relaxes me. ;)

cvchief:  This will be my first time there.  What are the prices like?  I need to know how much money to take for our dinner next Wednesday?

 

And how much do you think for a cab from Ave 30 & Xel-Ha (15) to El Moro?

Hey, Betty,

 

The prices aren't bad.  Probably a little more than your cool seafood place, but very reasonable.

 

I am NO GOOD on taxis.  If I was paying probably 1000 pesos or if the wife handled it we would be walking after the haggling ended....  :)

 

I'd pick you guys up, but I think we are maybe 6 people in the clown car at this point.  That is close to doubling up in every seat.  I might have to stash the missus in the trunk. 

 

And don't worry about the cost and the taxi.  You will be back often after the first trip, to be sure!
