We go to the Mayan Bistro every time we are in Playa del Carmen. The menu varies for dinner depending on the fresh finds of the day. Always a pleasant surprise. Great international food.

We had such a lovely family evening with our 3 daughters at the Mayan bistro. We were immediately welcomed by Nicholas, the waiter, who made our children feel like princesses all night, & helped them to practice their Spanish. Our food was perfect too - our first venture into Mayan cuisine. The girls were brought complementary ice creams at the... More

My wife and I have been staying at the hotel across the street from Mayan Bistro for 4 days now and it did not even cross our minds to eat there because we wanted to walk around the other streets trying to find a good place to eat. On our last day here at Playa del Carmen I suggested we... More

We Stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant by chance. As we walked in we were greeted by a smiling waitress named Gabby. Our dining began outside but as the rain rolled in we were quickly moved into the intimate indoors. Our food consisted of Steaks and homemade french fries which my girlfriend and her 12 year old son found the food... More

We stopped to eat here when we saw the travelwise award sign, on our last night in Playa del Carmen and also our 29th wedding anniversary. Nicolas was our server, and he was so helpful in making our experience special. The food was absolutely top notch, as if we were eating in a fine restaurant in the states. My husband... More

Many of the items are inexpensive and good. Unfortunately 5th ave is plagued by restaurants with super high prices, but offer low quality dishes. LoL most places are like eating mcdonalds with 4 season prices. This place isn't like that. It's ran by Americans who understand the price-quality dynamics that Mexicans are still grappling with. Most Mexicans assume that Americans... More
