After reading so many positive reviews for El Mestizo, we were excited to give it a try. It was close to our hotel so it made it an easy choice. We walked in and were promptly seated. It seemed strange that there was not one other person in the restaurant (7 pm). We ordered calamari as an appetizer. Looked good... More

this restaurant first of all is located right in the heart of playa del carmen, where everything happens on the corner of 12th and 5th, so you cant miss it! when you walk in, you see these sort of hanging bungalow sections, that are divided by a river of koy fish on the bottom. the service is great, the food...

A place to go for some authentic local flavors. Nothing can compare to the chiles rellenos dish. It was an unexpected explosion of flavor! Added bonus of being a vegetarian dish. Chef came out to chat, and the waiter was very nice. Great service. Koi pond in below the main dining area. The restaurant is set back a little bit... More

A new little restaurant on 5th Ave. and 12th that offers a menu steeped in history and exquisite flavors!! The food is exceptional and the ambiance is delightful.......a water feature with large fish circulates around and under walkways to intimate tables or larger table groupings......a feast for all your senses.

Hidden among the boutiques and souvenir stores in Playa del Carmen, we found a hidden gem of a restaurant, only opened for four weeks the night we were there. It has a relaxed atmosphere, a koi pond (it was previously a Thai restaurant), even a waterfall. The chef Matias Castaneda came to our table to inquire how we enjoyed our... More
