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.

My husband and I were excited to try this place in light of the reviews....the staff was great but the food was very disappointing... He got the surf and turf and I got the risotto...we found our dishes to be bland and boring...we won't be returning here and wish we had tried something different that night

This was the best restaurant we have been to in Mexico: fantastic food, very nice restaurant. We had tuna tartare with avogado and fried calamari: really nice. Then we had lobster and grilled fish. The argentinian white wine was really good. Service was excellent and the prices were adequate (not different than in Europe)

A very classy restaurant with great see food. For a tourist from Europe a great place to try a lobster and not ruin your bugdet. A lobster tail for about 1000 MXN can easily be shared between two people. The atmosphere of the restaraunt is ruined a little by a loud dance music from places just across the street.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and each time the quality of the food and service are outstanding.

If you are looking for a big caribbean lobster tail, look no further. The lobster risotto was also one of our favorites. Quite a good place and would return again.

Some of the best lobster I ever had. Very convenient that they bring you a selection of uncooked lobster tails with their various costs to select from. The rest of the food was good as well. Great location along 5th avenue. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Will seek out this place again next time we are down there.

If you are looking for good service and good food (lobster), this is the place. I ordered a Lobster at la plancha while my wife got a seared tuna. Both very good. Good value for the money.
