They had almost no vegetarian options. I ended up getting the spaghetti marinara, which was uninspired and tasted canned, and my companion got a filet which was well done though he requested medium. The live music was good but the tvs were distracting.

Terrible experience for first time in Playa del Carmen. Should have got a skinny potato! Family ordered dinner. Service was OK. Quality of food so-so. Me and my son ordered steaks. My wife and daughter ordered pasta dishes. I had to send my steak back twice. After it came out third time I did not want it no longer. I've... More

We took friends out to celebrate their retirement. My "filet mignonette" was actually sirloin wrapped in bacon and not very good. My friends' glass of Cabernet tasted just like my glass of Merlot. Then when we paid the bill with a credit card the waiter asked for my husbands ID. Ok, that happens from time to time. Then he came... More

After having an okay meal at this restaurant, we tried to pay our bill with a credit card. The waiter said cash only because their machine was broken. This was not told to us before we sat down and since I only had about $15 in my wallet, we didn't have enough cash to cover the bill. My husband asked... More

We had dinner here as the menu looked good , it was attractive in appearance and great location on 5th. Bottom line the food was not very good and ditto on the service. Don't waste your time and money!

The restaurant looked appealing, pleasant and clean. It was enjoyable to sit "street side" and people watch. The wait staff was unattentive, troublesome since we were the only ones in the restaurant. The shrimp quessarillas were not bad at all, and the tiramasu was quite nice. However, I was apparently not paying that much attention to prices, and we were... More

Obviously the chef is either english or swede!! The food was not tasteless as IT DIDN'T HAVE TASTE AT ALL!! Appaling food but good service. Quesadillas had just pieces of chicken och some cheese. No spices at all, no taste, the sallad had pieces of toast cheese!!!! DON'T GO TO THIS TRAP!!!

This was our first visit at this restaurant and we ordered fish filet. The fish was not fresh and covered in oil, it was bland and coupled with boring vegetables. Overall we were surprised that this restaurant didn't live up to our standards. Stay away.

Ordered a bottle of wine that is $12 in US, $40 here. Ordered Caesar salad and seafood ravioli. Salad was goopy and over- dressed, the ravioli was heavy, chewy, and utterly tasteless. Don't these chefs ever taste this stuff before they serve it? Nice atmosphere, but that is the only positive thing to say about this place. Go somewhere else.

i come here for breakfast at least twice each visit to playa. although i enjoy their breakfast, comfortable seating and people watching, the waitstaff is either good or poor. perhaps it's just me as a solo traveler and don't have that look of spending money. i now pick my server and sit in his section:-) my very good rating is...
