Staff was great, spoke English and the food was excellent. It was a great place especially for breakfast, which we went to every day

Xocolatier WAS one of our favorite spots, especially for breakfast. New management has taken over recently, and everything has taken a turn for the worse. First of all, the service is terrible. Tea cup taken before tea was finished, food brought out all at different times, questions not being able to be answered, etc. The last time we were there,... More

AVOID! Eggs smelled like they fell out of the back of a horse, but the worst was that I was told by the manager that I was mistaken, who ignorantly retreated to his phone and refused to give his name (named 'german' or herman, i was told later). When I ordered my bill, I was charged the full price for... More

We went to the place tree times for lunch and tried their fix price menu. For 145 pesos you get tortias , lemonade, glass of vine, appetizer and main dish. The menu is different everyday (not available on Sundays) which we loved because it brings a surprise element . All dishes were good, but the best we liked were flavorful... More

Variety and presentation of food and service were beyond expectation. The pricing is surprisingly moderate in a good location right at the end of the fifth so not in the crowded area. Had a superb cappuccino, an excellent homemade lemonade and best chicken wrap ever while sitting in a real comfortable chair, chilled and used their free WIFI stayed for... More

Tired after touring Cozumel, we found this wonderful little place down the far end of 5th Ave. We were looking for peace and quiet out of the hustle and bustle of the main part of the street. This Cafe did not disappoint. The Thai Salads that we ordered were perfect. Will definitely go back next time we are in the... More

This place is in the up and coming "local" end of 5th Avenue, on 38th. I love this end of 5th as it is less touristic and more chilled. This restaurant totally encapsulates this feeling, it has a great chilled atmosphere (the air conditioning is very welcome on a hot Playa day), free wifi, some lovely comfy seating and a... More

One of the only places around with air conditioning. My sister and I, with our daughters (both under 6 months) were meeting a friend for lunch and it was too hot and humid to be outside in the afternoon with our babies so we chose here. They service was excellent, the food was fresh, and they were able to make... More

We had dinner here one night and had a great experience! From the appetizers (caesar salad, spinach salad, soup) to the main courses (pasta dishes and seafood) everyone was happy with what they ordered. We would return here again and would recommend it to our friends.
