The old La Fragata was a quaint little off the beaten path restaurant with hit or miss food and irregular hours.,but the new and Improved La Fragata is a whole new ball game! Enlarged space, inside air conditioned dining, more outside dining and the food has gone from Ho hum to fantastic! It is a must try while visiting Playa,... More

As full-time residents of Playa del Carmen, my wife and I have visited many of the restaurants here....old and new. La Fragata is without a doubt our favorite. Breakfast, lunch or dinner....it doesn't really matter....the food is consistently delicious and well-presented and prepared. And consistently good is a rare quality here. The owner and her family are quite simply some... More

This French Restaurant recently re-opened after a major renovation. The interior is beautiful and there was ample outdoor seating. We had a fabulous filet mignon. I was apprehensive at first because I think beef in Mexico is very different from Canada. It went beyond our expectations, cooked perfectly and complimented with potato, mushroom and spinach. With a salad, soup and... More

Went by here last week and it was being gutted. Spoke to a security guard for the hotel down the street and he advised they are closed up.

My first visit was in Feb 2014 and then again March 2014 and April 2014. The food was exceptional, presentation excellent, wait staff great. My only complaint was the overall ambience. I feel that it could have more character and it would make it even more appealing. I envision red and white checkered tablecloths or tablecloths of any sort, perhaps... More

We ordered a bunch of Mexican stuff (ceviche, fajitas, tacos, quesadilla) and everything was really delicious. Seriously. And pretty good value for money (disclaimer, we eat out in NYC so we might be a bit skewed on value for money). So 5/5 for that. We got the bill and I didn't have enough pesos, so I asked if I could... More

And I am sure other dishes are also delicious as it was recommnded to me by more than 1 person. I was there for breakfast and enjoyed my huevos ranchero and coffee. For dinner I had the fish tacos and they did not disappoint - very tasty! Highly recommnded restaurant for food, staff and atmosphere.
