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.

La Fragata exceeded all of my expectations. Due to its location near Fifth Avenue, I assumed the quality of food would be crap (which most restaurants on Fifth Ave are) and the prices would be very high. Not the case. Everything from the food to the service and the prices is excellent. The waiters are super friendly and willing to... More

The owner and wait staff are very friendly as well. Saturday nights now include a sax player during the dinner hour, adds a really nice touch. Some of the meals we had were... More

We stopped here for lunch and had a wonderful chicken sandwich. We decided later to have dinner here. We never checked the reviews on Trip Advisor. Wow what a pleasant surprise. The menu had the English translation but could use a lot of help. My husband had the grilled tuna and I had the grilled chicken in a Dijon sauce.... More

We had lunch here our first day in Playa del Carmen. It was delicious! I had shrimp tacos. My husband had fish tacos. They were delicious...my only regret is we never went back! They were serviced with very tasty onions that I think were marinated with limes. Also avocado slices which I very generously passed to my husband (not a... More

We went four times to La Fragata for dinner. Twice as a couple, and twice with a friend. On all 4 occasions we found the food excellent, the service very good, and the prices relatively reasonable. Their shrimp tacos are fabulous, and so is their shrimp risoto,Caesar salad and other dishes we tried. We will definitely go back a couple... More
