We came here because some of our group wanted Mexican food and some didn't. Not sure how Mayan it is compared to the excellent Yaxche for example but the food quality was good. The kids both had pasta (huge servings, USA-style) and adults had fish, lobster and beef burritos. Really accommodating and friendly service! The Hotel Aventuras it's part of... More

Ate here twice while staying at the Aventura Mexicana. The food is good, and the staff attentive and efficient. Both times it was quiet and the food arrived quickly.

I and my wife have traveled for 30 years. Because of our love for great food and drink every trip for us must include these two components; we have planned whole trips to try out a new restaurant half way around CANADA or an 8hrs.flight to another country. Soo, Playa Del Carmen Mexico, I will not lie when I say... More

Chris, the Food and Beverage Manager of the hotel---runs the restaurant and does an amazing job! The night we got there our hotel failed to inform us our reservation was cancelled due to a private party.Luckily Chris took pity on us and it was pretty early so we had a quick dinner before the party got started. The food is... More

Loved the guacamole! Chris is amazing and we adored the set-up, we were able to eat poolside, in the garden area or in the Hut style formal area!

This quaint bistro is in an amazing location just off 5th Avenue away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to all of the action that you should walk there and enjoy the scenery. The setting is lovely, overlooking a garden courtyard, and has a terrific local menu of seafood as well as steak and plenty of Mexican flare... More

The food is amazing to include the tequila shrimp. Restaurant is small with great service and ambiance to include the thatched roof. All dishes have exquisite flavor with reasonable prices. The Parmesan rice is out of this world and the bananas foster is excellent. Get off the beaten path and try this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.
