This place was a fun and unique place to eat. Right in the middle of Playa del Carmen so it is convenient. We got the meat platter for 2 and the 4 of us could not even finish it all! Great food, great prices, and great service.

Prices to high to level of service and food quality. Besides that, the bill came with additional 10% charge to fund dish washers tip, what is not common in the area. What is common is to pay between 10% and 15% to the waitress. Will never go back there.

We wanted to go to 5th avenue for dinner and asked around for recommendations. The doorman gave us a name of place to get good seafood so we compared it with Los Rancheros which fellow travelers recommended. The doorman's restaurant seemed to be priced less so we negotiated at Los Rancheros to get 2 for 1 drinks and 3 lobsters... More

Nice, quiet, authentic place to eat without the blasting music and drinking games. Restaurant is on the 2nd floor and offers a view of the activity on the street level. Mariachi or marimba band plays live music.

The food was excellent and authentic Mexican but had a bit of the touristy feel - both their dishes and their prices. The meal ended up being very expensive for the area but what do you expect when you are in the downtown tourist area. They had a nice band playing on the mid-level but we missed out on that... More

We have visited this restaurant several times over the years and the food is always wonderful. You can sit outside looking over the street leading to the ferry terminal. We had great lobster, red snapper and king prawns and HUGE cocktails. It can be as expensive or as cheap as you like. Great staff and a lovely hostess MiMi. Will... More
