Just had dinner at La Fragata. We are staying right across the street at the Royal Palms. Of all the places we've eaten in Playa in the past 2+ weeks this was our best meal. We split a mouthwatering Ceasar Salad. It was so good I could just eat it and nothing else, all night long! My wife had a... More

We have been going here for years, and now that the restaurant is enclosed in sound-proof glass, it is even better. Sure you can still dine on the patio, but we like a little peace sometimes. Excellent soups, great fish platters, seafood tacos that are some of the best in town, and believe it or not...fajitas, which we would not... More

This has allowed us to offer both a calm, comfy visit in the dinner room or the "Playesque" atmosphere in the patio. We will keep on offering nothing but the best to all our Guests. Pleased stop by anytime soon,... More

This place has amazing food and everything is reasonably priced. But.. the tacos were the best we had on our entire vacation. And we ate a lot of tacos. The tacos were about $2 USD a piece if I'm remembering correctly. They're small, so order a fish and a beef. Still, we tried to eat at different restaurants and sample... More

We have gone there every year for 5 years. We went in Oct 2013 and the food and service was hit or miss. I ordered beef fillet and was served fish that was full of bones. Even the owner said it was a bad dish and she changed it. The problem was the server didn't speak English or it was... More

If you happen to visit the restaurant you need to try theirs fish tacos - delicious. Guacamole was also really really good, not to salty, just right and well balanced.

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.

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
