Posada el Moro, which previously provided breakfast only for guests, expanded service in 2014 to a full restaurant open to the public for breakfast and dinner. The wide-ranging menu includes grilled seafood, meats and vegetables, as well as pastas and antojitos (snacks). The specialty is a mocaljete (mixed grill in a traditional stone bowl with baked potato, grilled nopal cactus and vegetables) for two. Chile rellenos, my benchmark for Mexican food, are exceptional here, with batter that stays crispy and a chunky, mildly spicy tomato sauce. Service is outstanding; if you’ve scored on a fishing trip, the restaurant will prepare your catch any way you like, and you can even ask them to whip up regional dishes that aren’t on the menu. Indoor seating is quite pleasant, but the shaded outdoor tables, on a patio that removes you from sidewalk traffic, is the best of all possible worlds.
