This tiny restaurant was the best part of our trip. The service was incredible. Mikaela made my family - including 2 children- feel so welcome. George made the most delicious food. The atmosphere- amid crazy downtown Playa del Carmen -is located in a hidden side street. Safe and close to the main road -but quiet and beautiful. This is a... More

This restaurant is very petite, so I would recommend to make reservations before. Its a very quiet place, so maybe I wouldnt go with friends or family, but to a romantic dinner.

I had the Soy Tuna the first night and it was delicious. I came back again during the same week and had the lamb chops and they... More

The food and service are amazing!! George the chef owner is a true joy to talk to about the menu and the preparation of his dishes. His presentations and quality are unique. Service is impeccable led by George's wife who is also the extremely welcoming hostess. Well worth the price. We have dined at wonderful restaurants in Europe, the US... More

As it explains on the website the restaurant is small and reservation is an essential thing to have, so we had to book it a couple of days in advance. The service was spectacular and food simply divine! The place is quite expensive, but it doesn't feel like tourist trap, just a place to enjoy a tasty experience.

Relatively small place, you must make a reservation in advance to get a table. One must wait a bit, since it seems that everything is prepared on the moment. But the waiting is worth it. The food is spectacular! I wish I had tried one of the specials. We were celebrating our daughter birthday, so they organized a small cake... More

Great service and great food. I highly recommend the curry dishes. It is very tasty. I thought it was a little pricey but worth it.

By far the most elegant restaurant we have been to in our trip to Mexico, which included the very expensive (but ultimately disappointing) molecular gastronomy at Ku'uk in Merida. IMPORTANT NOTE: The restaurant is extremely small and reservations are essential---they are very responsive via email and through a form on their website. The service was really excellent throughout, but perhaps... More
