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 stayed at an all inclusive hotel where the food was great but decided to try the Blue Lobster as it has had many good write ups. What can I say the food was great and far exceeded expectations. The starters are a main meal in themselves !! Service was great as was the atmosphere. Thanks for a great meal... More

We ate here again this year for our anniversary dinner. They've added some delicious vegetarian starters! I highly recommend the hummus and couscous with pita (hummus on the pita 1st with a scoop of couscous on top, perfection!) Lobster is always a must, grilled is my preference but thermidor is also a tasty treat.

if you eat at any of the town restaurants instead of having them push you for a street view ... consider eating in the back with the ocean view ... much more quiet and romantic....

On our last night in Play Del Carmen my husband and I came here. The food is amazing, the service is impeccable and the drinks are strong. What more could you possibly want?

This is the place to dine if you want excellent seafood. The lobster tails were not cheap at 600 pesos but each is more than enough for two. And a bargain compared to New York prices, especially given the excellent quality. And they split the tails into separate plates with separate servings of rice and trimmings. The grilled shrimps were... More

It was my first time here and the service was sub-par. I would return to see if it was just that one time. Walked in and got a seat for my family of 4. They were not busy since there are just so many other choices on 5th. Seated upstairs where it's non-smoking. Was pretty hot and needed to redirect... More

We had desert and coffee there. Make sure you try the Spanish coffee. It's fun to watch them make it at your table. The chocolate cake is a must have.

There were 7 of us in our group. The service was adequate..nothing special.. The salads were not very fresh ( we were there about 8PM); For example, the Greek Salad had virtually NO lettuce. The beef in the Fajitas were kinda tough, and not too tasty. The menu was the size of a door that they sat on a chair... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. The mixed tempura and lobster tails [best I have ever eaten] were outstanding. Special thank to Marina our waitress who was most pleasant.

Fresh lobster tail, you get to pick the one you want. $107 for dinner for 2 and drinks. Well worth it.
