Three of us went last night and got a table on the third floor overlooking 5th avenue. It is a beautiful spot to eat.. The service was very good except we seemed to have a different waiter each time they served us, I counted 5? I ordered the shrimp stuffed with cheese wrapped in bacon. If you like bacon, as... More

This restaurant was great, food and service was impecable. While shopping in Playa del Carma, there are a lot to see and a lot to take in. There are many stores and restaurants that have reps our front basically cat calling you to come into their place. This one was no different, but the gentleman outside was very good, he... More

Went with family over Christmas vacation. Wonderful service!! The wait staff was attentive, polite, and funny. The seating is open air with a rooftop option which was nice because you felt like you were in Playa but got a respite from the busy street area. The food was the best we had in the 7 days we were in town.... More

This was by far our best meal in Playa del Carmen. When we arrived we were skeptical because there were very few diners in the restaurant. The staff doted over us, made recommendations, and brought us more food than we could eat. Very authentic dining experience. We will definitely eat there again next time we're in Playa del Carmen......

We made great memories here. They set our table out on the patio under the moonlight. Table side guac. 2 for 1 beers. We ordered the Mexican platter for 2 that easily fed 4. Amazing and happy staff. Give this place a chance!

While in Play Del Carmen, we stumbled upon this restaurant. My family and I were tired and hot from walking around various shops, so we decided to stop in and grab a quick bite to eat. We simply ordered some cheese sauce and dunked some authentic Mexican chips into it- it was quite good! I'm giving Los Rancheros 3 stars... More

Went here when we went into town on vacation. Just on a whim. There's a million restaurants on 5th avenue. Dinner was good.

Stopped by this place on our stroll up Quinta Avenida. My wife was craving good Mexican (even in Mexico!), so we decided to give it a go. This place did not disappoint. Food was fresh, hot, and well flavored. If you are tired of the international cuisine at your local all inclusive resort, and just want some good quesadillas or... More

We happened to be walking by and wanted a bite to eat after lunch but before the real dinner hour. What a pleasant surprise. We ordered the margaritas and the mexcian platter for two. There was enough food here for four! We had lunch with the leftovers the next day. Everything was fresh and tasty. It was served on top... More
