This place has been around for 8 years and it never disappoints. The music is awesome as they have a DJ performing. And they serve the best Fish Tacos in the world, among many other delicious appetizers.

This is right next door to Elements so it is close and very good. Fish Tacos and Shrimp burgers are great (not what you would expect). Beautiful view and great staff. Always on our agenda when we go to Playa del Carmen.

*******My friends and I had a beautiful afternoon, at Canibal Royal. The outdoor seating was nice, and the food was good and reasonable. We went on a Thursday afternoon, because they advertise ladies drink free 2-4, that would have been nice, they first said no, then ok then When 2 more friends came they said only 2 drinks, so that...

Canibal made for an amazing wedding venue for our group (around 30 of us). The retro/funky decor and laid back vibe was totally our style and made for some awesome wedding photos. The beach was awesome for our fire dancers/playing with sparklers later in the night-felt like we had our own private beach. The food is amazing. The guacamole, rock... More

This place is definitely a see and be seen place, with a sort of Miami vibe. There is a pretty nasty rooftop jacuzzi, which had murky water, I wouldn't risk getting in there. On the main level, fusion cuisine was being served at reasonable prices. Downstairs on the beach there were DJs blasting music and a little pop-up shop selling... More

Stopped by on 4/21, enjoyed the beautiful water, and great drinks(belvedere and red bull 120, +60 pesos), spouse had ice cold bohemia for 45 pesos. Scrumpious buffalo shrimp, tuna tacos, and fries the wife wants more of. Really strange because we are 48 and had no problems with music or amorous individuals. We were the ONLY Americans though Lol, but... More

I have been visiting PDC for 10 years now. Canibal Royal was once a great beach restaurant with great food and incredible views. I'm horrified to see what it's become. A club where people come to get drunk and make out while music pounds away so loud it can be heard a mile in each direction. Can't take the family... More
