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

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. 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
