Fantastic buffet at a reasonable price, drinks included. I can honestly say that I have never before had such excellent buffet food. Everything I tried was delicious and prepared to perfection. White fish filets, poached to perfection, Slow cooked rib eye steak with delicate mash, creamy paella, sumptuous fish ceviche and last but not least the "death by chocolate" dessert... More

This is a restaurant we always go to for a fantastic meal either with friends or as a couple. For many years, we have had the same waiter! The eggplant appie and the lasagne as amazing and the lobster dinner is the best value in Playa!

This place is all decorated in white, has little tables outside and looks very chic and expensive so we never even stopped to look at the menu in front. When we finally did we realized it was the same price (or cheaper) than other restaurants for tourists that look cheap and have bad food. The service here was excellent, although... More

After having a really bad service experience at one of the other 5th Ave restaurants decided to try something more exclusive and thought it was probably going to be much more expensive. Surprise everything was good, the food, the service, the wine, the atmosphere and the price! We have been traveling to Playa del Carmen every year for almost 20... More

Very innovative cuisine. The sauces for the dishes are some of the most fascinating combination of flavors I have ever had. The Imperial Shrip is just amazing. The citrus sauce is the best I have ever had on shrimp and I don't think it even has any sugar in it. A great place to eat elegantly and be healthy at... More

The Italian chefs here do a great job--even with Mexican dishes like fish fillet Veracruz style, a favorite of mine--and the white table cloths and nice table settings are a cut above the usual in Playa. In the years we've been eating there, we've never been disappointed in service or food or prices. ("Terrible" must've caught this 4 or 5... More

Our server Hugo took such great care to be sure we were well taken care of and we enjoyed the food and wine, we went back a second time during our two day stay. Definitely a place not to miss during a visit to... More

We have been travelling here for many years and have lived here full time for over 4 years and this was the worst most overpriced meal I have had in Playa. Not one of the appetizers or 4 main dishes our group ordered was even average. The service was mediocre and rather uninformed particularly regarding the wine selection. And as... More
