we alsways loved the fish and shrimp tacos but this last time it seemed like more breaking than shrimp or fish. Also tried the empanadas mixto this time and the crab and marlin were not to our taste at all. One of us had the shrimp kabobs which were ok but all three sauces were sweet. Needed something spicy. Cold... More

when you want to know the best places -- ask someone who lives where your at-- often the taxi drivers are most informed- I ask until I hear the same placed recommended twice-- then it's on- Oasis was one of these -- incredible staff and food- was off the tourist track-- which was great -- this is a place locals...

Excellent seafood! I ordered the "filete relleno de mariscos" and it's delicious. The attention, the ambience all was great. I will return in my next trip to Playa del Carmen.

Our experience was so good that we went back two days later. El Oasis serves fresh seafood cooked in a traditional mexican style. The place is very simple open air but the service is fantastic, quick, helpful, efficient and always with a smile. The decor is somewhat kitsch but adds flavor to the place. Out of all the things we... More

It is located on the other side of the highway so if going by foot from the sea-side you basically need to cross the highway at the level of calle 12 which magically becomes calle 22 on the other side. Don't ask me why. Look to your left for the pink roof. ;-) The food was not cheap but delicious.... More

Did I go on a bad day ? Possibly, but this is my experience. The ambience of the venue is lovely, breezy, extremely clean. Waiters friendly, helpful and warm. However, it is a restaurant... And the food was terrible. I ordered a rice and fish dish... When it arrived it looked wonderful, smelled wonderful... But when I tasted it it... More

Our family of 8 recently went for dinner here after the recommendation of our local friends after many visits to Playa del Carmen. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent as was the service. We did not speak much Spanish and were presented with Spanish menus. We asked the waiter if they had English menus and within minutes, someone... More

This place deserves to be in the top 50. It s good and strong value for fresh seafood. I thought service was good with smiling staff and happy music. Nice to get off 5th sometimes to get back to reality.

We stopped here for a late lunch after leaving Playa. Excellent service...our waiter was delightful. Fresh, tasty food. Clean; nice atmosphere considering it's right next to the highway. Our mixed ceviche platter was delicious. Enjoyed my first horchata beverage (made from rice)...yum! The clientele looked like mostly locals and some businessmen, so not a touristy crowd.

Yesterday afternoon a few friends and I went for shrimp tacos at El Oasis! It has been one of my favorite lunch spots in Playa del Carmen for the last 10 years! The breezy palapa-style layout is inviting, the service is fantastic, and the food is well-priced & delicious! Though the main course dishes are substantial & scrumptious, we typically... More
