Best coffee in Playa del Carmen

We stopped in here for breakfast. There was just two young men working and they were great. The breakfast included fresh squeezed orange juice and the best coffee we experienced in Mexico. Breakfast was about 10.00 for two people and was very good.

We were on a trip to several cities in Yucatan, and we came about this restaurant on our way to Cozumel. I typically don't write negative reviews, but this restaurant had several areas for improvement: - The food was not good at all :-( Six of us ordered a variety of dishes: We had an early lunch...our pozole never made...

Our taxi driver talked us into this place and he was obviously paid by the place because what a total disappointment! This was actually the worst food I have ever ate in my life. Although the food was horrible the waiter was excellent and very attentive.

This restaurant has good value, especially for the price. Their food is always good. We go there often for a reliable, delicious meal. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good meal. You also feel at home eating here. We normally have fish or beef with ham, pepper, and onion.

El Sazon de Mexico was recommended to us by a local. It’s not a ”touristy” place at all. We stayed in Playa del Carmen for 5 weeks, and this restaurant has become one of our favourite spots. Their food is always fresh, simple (in a good way!) and tasty. The service is great and friendly. The prices are very affordable.... More
