Only Breakfast Buffet in Playa

I eat breakfast here every morning while in playa. Only negative is it is enclosed, thus no open air seating. However, great variety of breakfast foods and an EXCEPTIONALLY RESPONSIVE staff. Same staff for at least the last 5 years. Huevos (poached & scrambled), chilaquiles bar(verde y ranchero... read more

Ipanema's is a great dinning experience. The meats that are brought to the table are outstanding. Be sure to try the house special cut of meat, it is the best. The buffet bar was exceptional, full of salads, pastas, meat and cheese, sushi and many others. Make sure to ask for Jose Luis. He is an exceptional server, going above... More

Did not meet my expectations. Usually at such places all the different meats should be absolutely amazing. Not one of them was amazing. Good but not amazing. I've had better amazing meat at food stands on Juarez for sure.

I have visited this steakhouse multiple times ans always recommend it to anyone looking for great steak. I live in Playa but I am a Texas Native and good steak is HARD to come by in Mexico. This place serves up excellent beef, chicken hearts, pork, and turkey. Their grilled pineapple is UHMAZING AMAZING. The salad/sides bar is wonderful and... More

I confess it: I suffered here hahaha, this place has every bite of meat you will ever want, my partner at the time was a meat lover and he had half a cow with no problem whatsoever.

What a nice surprise to find in a small town like Playa del Carmen a good a Brazilian restaurant (Rodizzio or Churrasqueria type), the place is extremely good and has an outstanding quality. Although the place is not the best in decor, it is clean, comfortable and spacious; attention is the best and the food is simply spectacular. Ipanema's has... More

Excellent service and food! The overall system with side dish buffet, 17 different steaks and meats to eat (the waiters brought them to your table onenat a time) and the signaling system of green (please bring more meat dishes) and red (let us eat these before you bring the next meats) worked really well. Probably the best dinner I've ever... More

We are from Brazil and we know what a real Brazilian steakhouse food taste like. This is nothing like that. A scam and I wish I could give zero stars. Expensive, food on the cold buffet was warm and on the hot buffet was cold. Very dissapointed. They should review their concept or close their doors.

Stopped to have breakfast at this restaurant, after seeing that they offered a buffet for a good price. They have good choices of typical breakfast items. Buffet includes your choice of juice and coffee. Good tasting food at a reasonable price :) Did not have the chance to try the place for dinner, but heard good reviews about their dinner... More
