Myself and my family visited this gorgeous restaurant on a recent holiday to Mexico, and it was amazing! The staff were very friendly, welcoming and attentive, and the atmosphere was nice. The food was absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!!! I have noticed a few reviews moaning about portions, but we thought they were very generous (probably Americans used to their ridiculously greedy portions)... More

We've ate here on our other 3 previous trips and keep coming back for their melted cheese. This year it was not on the menu but they served it to us anyway. We tried different dinner items this year which we weren't as impressed by. I had enchiladas with the trio of sauces which was just ok. I usually get... More

Last year we loved this place and even went twice during our two week visit. But this year we ordered the same fish prepared the same way and it was not good...too fishy. However the fajitas were pretty good as was the Mexican plate. So if you go order Mexican dishes. Guacamole and margaritas also were good.

There are a couple of these in Playa, and they're both very busy. We only had breakfast but the other menus looked good too. I ordered huevos rancheros and they were really good except that the whites were a little runny. This happened a lot at various places. I think it's best to add that you want them turned over,...

Really enjoyed the great food and service here. The chicken fajitas were delicious and the chili was yum! Topped off with mango cocktails and charming service from Fito and August. We'll definitely be back!

A very handy location at the quieter North end of 5th Avenue. Very reliable, with attentive friendly staff. Food was of good quality and reasonably priced. Suitable and very welcoming whether you simply want to relax and have a quiet beer, breakfast, brunch through to evening meals. Happy to accommodate you whether you are on your own, in a couple...

Not a bad place to eat. Nice area for people watching. I had the fried fish but it was a bit small. Not too much meat. My wife got the arrachera tacos. She says they were a bit fatty but good. Good service. I didn't know it had a yelp deal!

Very good food, excellent service and very good value. Have eaten both dinner and breakfast there during this trip and enjoyed them both. Wish we would have gone back a second time for dinner instead of trying Yaz Che Mayan Cusine.

We stayed in Playa del Carmen for 5 days in May. We have a friend that lives in the area and she recommended this place for breakfast. Very glad we listened to recommendation. Food was delicious! Very helpful that the menus were also in English since we were not fluent in Spanish. Service was great and the place is perfect... More
