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

Very bad food, not so nice service. I didn´t get the dish I ordered, I got smothing that wasn`t suitable for my diet. The staff didn´t care about us trying to tell them about it. My Company got a discusting meat dish. We paid (stupid ) and left that Place.

Dining with a party of 6, they were able to seat us quickly. We were on vacation for eight days and this was our best meal of the entire trip. Appetizers and food arrived quickly. Everything was hot and made fresh! My husband had the house soup and it was wonderful!! We will definitely eat here the next time we... More
