We stayed at the adjacent Aventura Mexicana Hotel in early April and dined at the Mayan Bistro on several occasions. Really good food, an unexpected surprise and great attentive service! Loved the veg, their Tequila Shrimp are outstanding and loved the outdoor eating area in the lush hotel gardens. My only gripe: really annoying "thump thump thump" music coming through... More

This is one of our go to places in Playa del Carmen. We ate there twice on this last trip. Nice ambiance by the pool and very good food. The fish prepared a la Talla is absolutely delicious.

We stayed at the Aventura Mexicana and ate here a few times having a different meal each time. The staff in the evenings are professional, friendly and helpful. The food from the menu was always fresh and delicious. Give this place a try!

I've travelled a lot in Mexico and so the prices of hotels and food in this extremely touristy area make we wince sometimes. For that reason, it's rather pleasant when the food turns out to be worth the money you pay. My husband and I came here for breakfast three times and we found the prices reasonable and the quality...

Our waiter Nicolas remembered us the 2nd night and greeted us like friends. I had the tequila shrimp and it was delicious; my daughter had... More

We stayed at the Aventura Mexicana and ate here a few times as well as at a number of places on 5th Avenida. This was better than most of those with a nice quiet atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was excellent and they really worked to make sure what you had was exactly what you wanted.

My family and I had dinner here one evening. I ordered grilled squid and I must say it was heavenly. My daughters ordered pasta dishes and they thoroughly enjoyed their meals.
