Tostadas de aguachido the best

When going to Playa del Carmen, I highly recommend you to have lunch at Los Aguachiles, it is a place where food is really good, I do like to have a "chelada" with XX Beer and 3 tostadas de aguachido. The restaurant sets a selection of different dressing, try the one based on coriander, it is not... read more

Started in playa by ferry terminal. Got info from tripadvisor site, tacos I got were fish and camarones. Very good. Best presentation for a taco at 26 pesos. Good cold beer. Bathroom could use a little help.

I went there based on the great reviews and I am glad that I did. I ordered the mixed seafood cocktail and it was so refreshing after walking in the sun all day. It was served with 9 different sauces, tostadas, and water crackers. The margarita was just OK.

Also got the scallops tostada. Very good too. Try all the different sauces. Delicious. Didn't liked that they did not give us the table that we wanted... More

My husband and I found this little restaurant a couple of blocks away from our hotel. The ceviche is the best I have ever tasted with an arrangement of homemade sauces to put on your fresh tostadas. We walked extra blocks to come to this restaurant over other restaurants that were much closer because you can not beat the taste... More

Both food and staff is super nice! Ceviche is the best we've ever had. Fish tacos are perfect. Everything is fresh and tasty. Located in a nice spot. We loved it and went there almost daily.

Great spot for evenings, try the ceviche and a couple tacos, you cant go wrong. Margaritas were bad but the dos equis ambers were A ok. Dinner for two is like $22 with beers.
