Description: In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.

We were taken to this restaurant by a friend and it was absolutely lovely. The food was good and not to expensive. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you. I had surf and turf lobster was delicious and the steak was great too. Highly recommended

Service was below average for Playa standards and they were not busy!!! Lobster linguini not creamy and dry to tasteless, the lobster pieces were slightly salty. The shrimp stuffed avocado would have been delicious except for the fact that I "forgot" that the cocktail sauce here is a mayonnaise based/1,000 Is. Dressing-I forgot!!!! Would not go back-too many other FAB... More

Had the seafood feast for two- good value and enough for 2 ppl, the shrimp is amazing if I were to go back i would only order shrimp. The lobster was good too and the fish lacked some seasoning. Love the frosted beer mugs.

A choice of lobster and how it is served, the lobster itself is lovely but the sides are a bit on the boring side, its our third time here but getting a bit pricey...£60 for 2 smallest lobsters and a bottle of wine

The Blue Lobster did it again, with an amazing experience. My wife and I wanted a buttery wine and a buttery lobster and the meal exceeded all expectations! You get to pick out the exact lobster tail for them and how to cook it. I recommend broiled with butter and veggies. The wine selection is as good as it gets... More

I had a craving for risotto so I went at the Blue Lobster. Lobster risotto was not amazing, I'll say just above average, although the lobster was well grilled. At 300 pesos, you can get a lot better outside considering the size of the portion and the overall satisfaction. I would not recommend.
