Best 'Just off 5th Avenue' Restaurant. Terrific food.

Loved everything about the Mayan Bistro. The chef is very talented and prices are reasonable. We stayed the the Aventura Mexicana with a VIP all inclusive pass to this restaurant, but we would have certainly paid on our own for the wonderful service, great food and quiet and relaxing atmosphere... read more

I booked a New Year eve dinner with my family, paid in advance USD 91 each for a 6 course dinner and was completely substandard. To begin with the table did not have a tablecloth, not even place mats. Since it was mostly seafood my wife and I ordered white wine, so we were brought a glass each of a... More

What an amazing restaurant! The ambience was wonderful as well as the service. I had the mango/ chili sea bass that was melt-in-your-mouth fabulous. I highly encourage anyone visiting Playa del Carmen not to miss out on Mayan Bistro! You will be thrilled by some of the best food in the area.

A couple near the door told us we would miss the best place in Playa if we kept walking. Were they EVER right! Fantastic food and excellent ambiance. Not a big shiny place mind you but, you got a real glass of decent wine and bottled water only $40 pesos. Meal was reasonably priced but not cheap. Again, food was... More

We had a mostly quiet, tasty dinner here. The service was good, the dining area was open and airy without being outside. There were a few tables on the sidewalk too. The one draw back was hotel guests traipsing through the dining room. If not for that, we might consider returning for another dinner.

Read reviews and headed over a couple of nights ago. Charming and laid back setting. Food was great, my GF had a spicy chicken dish wrapped in banana leaf, mine was the chicken mole. Being from Tucson maybe I should have stayed away from a dish that is prepared so well back home. Food was really good and would recommend... More

The food at this restaurant was not only delicious but very reasonably priced. We ate their daily for at least one meal during our 10 days staying here. Great service and some of the best food. Even a hamburger is better than 99.9% I have ever eaten!
