located directly across from the new Hyatt Hotel. perfect location, charming restaurant and great service. I had the steak done perfectly while my friend ate the risotto. both were excellent as was the Caprese salad. With wine the bill was 600 pesos or just under $60.00. they have a wonderful menu and will definitely go back to try other items.

La Fragata has THE best fish and shrimp tacos in Playa! We order ours grilled but you can get them deep fried or breaded. Owner Beatrice's Chiles Rellenos are also to die for. Find out when she is making them as they may not be a daily offering. We have been to a few events in Playa that use Beatrice... More

My wife and I went there for my 65th birthday. My wife had the shrimp tacos. There were 3 tacos with 4 shrimp each. She said they were excellent. I had the talapia filet. There were 2 small fillets covered with peppers and onions. I had to spice it up with a little salsa & pepper but overall it was... More

Everyone should walk the few blocks off 5th and go have a meal at this little bistro! We arrived and were greeted life family and were treated like family throughout the meal! The waiters were kind, and attentive, but also let us just sit and enjoy our last glass of wine with out making us feel rushed to leave. Our... More

La Fragata is on 1st Avenue (one block towards the beach from 5th) at calle 26. It is upscale without being pretentious. It is well worth the diversion from 5th. The inside is modern and bright. Two of the four walls are glass so you can see the activity on the street. There is also a sturdy and level outdoor... More

We were in Playa del Carmen 8 days and ate at this restaurant twice. There is a lot of construction going on across the street (Hyatt Hotel being built) but there is no dust after hours if you decide to dine outside. This reataurant is outstanding and easy to miss, but don't. The restaurant is beautiful, the wine is outstanding... More

Our first trip was for lunch on the patio; we had a little challenge finding it initially since we didn't realize it had been renovated/expanded & therefore looks quite different on the outside from pictures we saw online. But it was well worth the trouble and we had a fantastic meal. Fish tacos, shrimp tacos, shrimp fajitas were all awesome... More

We were walking the back streets of Playa and found this wonderful spot, stopped to look at the menu and started talking to Ruth the Hostess. We enjoy the dinning experience, so decided to give it a try and glad we did. Started with salad, which very fresh, great meal then on to the desert, oh done forget the wine,... More

Located on 1st Ave not 5th La Fragata seems to get forgotten in the shuffle to find dinner in Playa. As the other reviews state a major remodel was done and fortunately the owners remain the same as does the quality of the food. Having lived in Playa for 6 years full time La Fragata remains a consistant gem of... More
