When ever we travel to Playa del Carmen, this is always our first stop. We love Raul and come specifically to see him and grab one of the delicious breakfasts. There are so many to choose from.

I was attempting to stay clear of all the spots on Quinta but I was starving so decided to try it. I was not disappointed. The nachos and shrimp tacos are great. The service was amazing.

This place is on 5th and excellent. The grilled tuna was one of the best tuna steaks I've ever had. Give it a try.
