Lobster and bacon burrito - muy bien

So we're walking by this place and we see a sign for a Lobster and bacon burrito. Now, we're Canadian so we just couldn't pass this up, but let me tell you - it was fantastic. We couldn't stop raving about it. Service was a little slow but if you have the opportunity you have to try it, I doubt... read more

Nice simple restaurant on the way to the beach . I had the Fish Burrito . Nice size , but a bit short on fish. You would think there wouldn't be a shortage in a city like this. Staff was very nice.

The service at this place is quiet slow and you better hold on to your water glass because it won't be filled again. The food is ok not much flavor and they are about the same price like in Dallas, Tx. So I would recommend another spot unless you are very drunk and are walking on 26th street.

Had lunch here today (28th& ave1). The burritos were big, so price of 89 pesos wasn't out of line, but it seemed that all you could taste was the fillings and not much meat. The beers were nice and cold and service was okay. Wouldn't go out of my way to return.

The nachos are tasty and the beer is cold. Very close to the beach, it is a good place for lunch. It's not the cheapest place in town.

Nice little spot off la 5t ave. crowd. Very Good service, good food, nice atmosphere, and like very few places in playa del Carmen reasonable price. Not the best food in town, but it's ok if you're trying to have a decent meal without paying a fortune.

yummy little restaurant close to the Aldea Thai where I stayed while in Playa del Carmen. I ate there a few times for lunch it was great healthy Mexican food. The burrito bowl was on of my favorites.

Their vegetarian burrito is a stand-alone success. VERY memorable sauces come with it, including a brilliant horseradish concoction. To die for, and like 4 bucks.
