Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The dishes are creative and beautifully presented. We enjoyed the charming backyard with lush vegetation, as well as the quieter atmosphere, a welcome respite from some of Cancun’s and Playa’s overwhelming venues.

We ate here the last two nights of our trip and wish we would have found it sooner. The Pulpo de las Brasas with potatoes was absolutely delicious….the best octopus I’ve ever eaten. The decor is beautiful and jungled themed. Would definitely eat here again!

Very wonderful and welcoming staff. Daniel took very goid care of us. The meals are Yucatan, which is special to this area. They also have pasta and other items for people who don't want to venture out of what they know. The ambiance and decorations...are beautiful and relaxing. You can do tequila tasting in the tequila room if you like.More

We were in PUERTO Morelos for the first time at advice of friends. It’s s wonderful, quiet, and family oriented alternative to Cancun and other busier choices. We recommend the Amar Inn for this experience with great breakfasts based on local cuisine and a wonderful...beach steps from your room. We ate out at different locally owned restaurants every night to enjoy the local food scene. Nearly all were excellent and fun. Many included live music regardless of the night. But the only restaurant we chose to return to was Restaurante Matea and their great server Einar. All dishes were excellent but their coconut milk, fish and shrimp Ceviche were to die for, as was Einar’s superb gentle and quality advice. We expected to pay much more for this experience, but actually found that their prices were well aligned with other establishments. Find Matea and ask for Einar when you visit PUERTO Morelos, you won’t be disappointed!More

This restaurant was so good we had to go twice! My husbands salmon presented in banana leaves with an orange sauce was perfect as was my grilled mahi mahi. Its in the back corner of the plaza but definitely worth finding.
