We were walking down 5th avenue while visiting playa and stopped into Las Delicias for dinner. It was a great choice. We had chips and pico that were fresh and delcious and then we both had veggie fajitas that were amazingly good. This place was pretty quiet, but I don't know why - the food was great, the service was... More

Located on the fifth avenue of the Playa Del Carmen, this restaurant may seem like one of the busy touristic restaurants, which one may want to avoid, but it turned out to be a great surprise for us. The staff is friendly, the food was delicious (best mole sauce, and some sort of walnut sauce), and the service was fast.... More

We were lucky enough to run across a dinner special they were having - Rib eye or T bone steak with baked potato, vegetables & a glass of wine for 210 pesos. Up to this point, we had only been eating Mexican food so thought this would be a great break from the traditional and at a great price. The... More

We have been spending every December in Playa Del Carmen for seven years and Las Delicias has been a reliable, consistent 5th Ave option throughout that time. We had lunch there last week and it was slightly better than I remembered (we had Ceviche and Fish Tacos). As always, the food is fresh, the service is attentive, and the people-watching... More

I went with a group of four as the advertised dinner special on the street looked fabulous. A rib eye or T-bone steak with baked potato and vegetables along with a glass of wine for $210 pesos. It was an absolutely delicias meal! One of the best rib eye steaks I have had in a long time and cooked to... More

We were walked here on referral by a local shop keeper for the best fish tacos and were happy he was right. Great spot for people watching on the 5th ave tourist strip. Margaritas and were great; the cook made sure our vegetarian friends requests were met. Service was fast and attentive.

We have been to Las Delicias 6-8 times in the past 5-6 years. We have looked forward to our visits each time. Carmen and others have been our waiter and have represented the restaurant and performed services very well. We have often been favored with a BOGO free drink along with our excellent meal and very good service. Sometimes we... More

We have eaten at many street side restaurants in Playa Del Carmen over the years and Las Delicias provided the best dish of Nachos we have ever had in Playa. The atomosphere is perfect for downtown Playa, the service exceptional and the marguaritas and Nachos were over the top.

Good food, friendly and attentive service. Nice location for people watching. Left with a pint of Tequilla with our photo on it.

I agree with the majority of the reviews previously written. Had I known they were going to charge and arm/leg for drinks, I would have skipped. The food was great, tortilla felt like they have been previously reheated several times. It's empty most of the time, with waiters just hanging out and avoiding request from guest. Enjoy a drink some... More
