Last year our meal there was one of the best in Playa. Not this year. Started with guacamole, it was the worst we have ever had. It was a bright green and tasted like the junk bought at a market that comes in a plastic container. I had the shrimp juallio, the shrimp were good, but the sauce/presentation was not... More

The service was a big rush, all the waiters were stressful and running from one side to other, and the food was horrible, my Daugther and I spend the whole night with stomach problems. No recommended at all

During our most recent trip to playa. The food and drinks here are amazing. We stopped for lunch one day while waiting for a massage across the street, had a couple of drinks each and chicken tortilla soup and poblano corn cream soup ( or something like that). Both were the best soups I've ever had! Came back another time... More

Well! First of all, it took a while for the waiter to show and much longer for the Fish to get to my table. The Fish was classified as the full fish meal or something like that. Here is a picture. I also, had to chase the waiter to pay the bill $391 Pesos. I left a tip, crazy me.... More

There were 4 of us in our party and we had searched 5th avenue for a restaurant that served authentic Mexican food and after speaking to the restaurant pusher standing at the menu stand we decided to give it a try. Mistake! All four of us ordered different entrees and none of us were impressed by what we ate and... More

Really cute, quaint place. It's small. Not a ton of seating, but really worth it. They have some unusual dishes, and everything was delicious! We have a vegetarian in our family and this place satisfied everyone. Do yourself a favor and make the stop-you won't regret it!!!

Great little restaurant in the shopping area of Playa del Carmen. We stopped in for a few drinks. The staff was wonderful, friendly, and the prices were affordable.

I'll make this simple for anyone interested: If you live somewhere that has a good Mexican restaurant that you enjoy, SKIP THIS PLACE. Mi Pueblo is designed for the person or family who isn't familiar with Mexican food or who doesn't have access to a Mexican restaurant back home. What does this mean, my fellow traveller? Below average food with... More

There are many choices for restaurants along 5th Ave. We chose this Mi Pueblo because they were one of the busier restaurants and the gentlemen who approached us stated they had a molcajete special for 2. I was able to substitute what I wanted because I am not a fan of beef in Mexico, so I substituted chorizo sausage instead.... More
