Lite meal, delicious snd fresh. We had issues with communication and an incorrect tab. Not sure we'd eat there again based on the bill issues and inability to communicate effectively.

I was a bit disappointed was expecting a lot more for what I got. I got a fish ceviche for 190 pesos and it was a small portion wit lots of tomatoes and not much fish. Also tried the tostadas which where very taste but again not so big.

The only day we didn't have lunch at the beach we walked around the corner from our hotel and had a great lunch here. The aguachiles are definitely not overhyped - lots of shrimp in a really delicious sauce. Service was wonderful and all in all, it was a perfect lunch on a hot day in Playa

Felt like we were going to an authentic Mexican place. The tacos and tostadas are delicious - so many varieties it was hard to choose. My favourite was steamed fish with Cilantro sauce. And the 9 different salsas (sauces) that they put on the table in front of you! overwhelmed by choice. Loved the spicy sauces. My husband's favourite dish... More

This is my favorite restaurant in all Playa del Carmen! Every time I'm in town I have to stop and eat there at least once (but most times I'll go more than once)! Their ceviche is delicious, I don't like onion and tomato, and this is the only place where they will give me my ceviche just how I like... More

It was open! After last night’s failed attempt to eat here, glad it was open! Open air, super casual (plastic tables & chairs). We ordered tempura rock shrimp (not great, not bad, a bit soggy) and guacamole (super fresh, clean, great). Each of ordered 2 or 3 tostadas or tacos. I ordered the fish ceviche, shrimp aguachile and the octopus... More

If you're looking for fresh seafood, this is the place. They have tostadas, tacos, figurines, crunch tacos, everything you could want. I always get the figurines atun fresco, it is a lettuce wrap with fresh sashimi tuna, onion straws and a nice chipotle sauce. They also offer rock shrimp (similar to bang bang shrimp from Bonefish grill) and real great... More
