Welcoming stairs - but staff not very attentive. Staff standing around on their phones. Most times we walked past we saw maybe 2-6 ppl dining there. They need to up their service.

This restaurant is located on 5th Ave, on the second level, so it's interesting to watch all the people below. The food is good, but there are better options. It's a bit pricey for what you get. The seafood combo is very good. The Chilean sea bass was presented nicely, but had little flavor; the butter was overwhelming. This was... More

We've been to Playa del Carmen several times, and we always enjoy a meal at Madre Tierra. The surf & turf deal is a decent value for 5th Avenue and the food is delicious.

We asked a local person where we could get a good mariscos (seafood) meal. This place came highly recommended. It's located under a palapa, on the 2nd floor, overlooking 5th Ave, across the Hacienda Tequila store, near 14 bis Norte. It's a wonderful locale, especially sitting on the terrace with the cool breezes and sounds from 5th Ave. We ordered... More

Food was good but the menu was very american and boring selection. The rooftop restaurant is for the boring diner. The view is great of the street to people watch and enjoy the sounds of the street. The staff was good

A great restaurant!!! We went twice in three days!!! By far, the steaks are amazingly delicious and flavorful!!! The views are awesome, and the prices are just right. Only con: Wi-Fi is non existent. Just terrible. Suggestion: Management, barking orders for all to hear is not cool. We just don't need to hear it. But aside from that, it was... More
