Some of the best local food and service

This place is wonderful. Great service, great margaritas and mojitos, great food (mole mole mole, muy bien!), and it's affordable. Local feel, attentive and caring. Highly recommended!

This was the first meal we had in Playa del Carmen. They brought out (good) free chips and salsa. They had a special running: 2 fish or chicken tacos + a beer. I can't remember how much we paid, but I think our entire lunch was under $20 USD with tip. It wasn't the best food I've ever had, but... More

Having just arrived in Playa del Carmen we got a great welcome here with some tasty food and excellent friendly service (thank you Erasmo). I got talked into the Tempura prawn special and glad I did as it came with a free beer and was delicious. Highly recommended all times of day.

Food is below average but it is worth mentioning that the juice selection is great and the service is very good it's a shame that you can't say the same about the food.

Went here on my first day in PDC the food was delicious. The service was very prompt and efficient. I got the taco appetizer as my entree (comes with 2 tacos and rice, avacado, your choice of filling) it was delicious! The dessert options looked good but I was too full to try any of them. I had the Gold... More

We ate lunch at the 24/26 avenue location. Carlos was our waiter and he was very friendly and helpful giving us suggestions about what to see in town while on vacation. I had a grilled chicken-avocado sandwich, cooked perfectly and on fresh baked bread. My wife had a quesadilla that was good, but not mind blowing. Still, it was a... More
