Puerto Juarez is the fishermen's neighborhood of Cancun, the authentic strip of the sea of ​​the town. Here one of the fish and seafood restaurants that the people of Cancun like most has been installed. You will repeat

Area Puerto Juarez, where the Mar Bella restaurant, is known mainly for the ferries to Isla Mujeres. Puerto Juárez lives facing the sea, it is the fishing district of the city of Cancun.

Here you will find many local fish and seafood restaurants, which are often crowded with residents on weekends. The bad news is that most of the restaurants in Puerto Juárez offer the same menu, the same flavors… and they are somewhat tacky for some tastes.

With one other exception, the Green Kiosk restaurant, the others are very far from the Mar Bella restaurant.

The proposal of the Mar Bella

The proposal of Mar Bella restaurant It was born from two Mexican partners who run one of the cooperatives in this fishing district. Adrián, one of the partners, explained to me that they sold fish and other products on the beach, always with that desire to offer the best to friends. When you listen to his story you know that his restaurant is synonymous with success.

So nobody better than Adrián and Jorge to know the products offered by this wonderful sea and to get the best of it and other seas to your table. So the idea was born, living facing the sea, and offering the most outstanding of it.

Mar Bella Restaurant

And so the Mar Bella restaurant, a place of initiative and superior flavors, of higher quality cuisine, of pampering at work, something that was needed for lovers of good food. This breath of fresh air is located above one of the cooperatives of fishmongers in Puerto Juarez. On the second floor of the building, entering through the Mar Bella grocery store, you reach a pleasant terrace without great pretensions, where the flavor of the dish is what matters, always in front of a wonderful view of the sea.

Product and price written on the blackboard and different proposals to taste them, varied and tasty. What you are going to consume you see it as if you were buying in the fish market, you choose it yourself if you want it.
