Description: Take Floribbean, blend in Asian Fusion, throw in a couple of South and North American Classics, and finish it with some European dishes, all with the Chef's twist...You have SALT ROCK Grille + Cocktails. Home-made bread and chutney start the meal and in-house baked desserts finish it. A nicely shaken Martini or Wine (many of our wines are available by the glass) will complement any dish. This small Family-owned and run restaurant is new to Playa but is getting great positive feedback and reviews. Sit inside or on the outdoor patio overlooking the NEW QUINTA Avenida.

6 dinners at this delightful Grille! The flavor of each dish I have tried is so unique and perfectly prepared that it is a dinning delight. The owners are warm, caring and charming people. Meals, wine and those delightful desserts are memorable. Prices are consistent with other eateries in the area and the food is outstanding. The other night we... More

We choose to dine at the Salt Rock on one of our evenings in Playa del Carmen based on the reviews it has received on TripAdvisor and its location on the north end of 5th Avenue which was close to our hotel. We enjoyed excellent food and were made to feel very welcome by Katherine who owns the restaurant along... More

In a sea of overpriced restaurants with the added notion of feeling harassed into venues we found the service and friendliness of the owners and staff here to be really refreshing. Dined in playa del carmen for a week and salt rock stood head and shoulders above the rest with its quality of food. I had a spaghetti marinara, fresh... More

It was good and the people that work there are super cool. The food was a little sweet in flavor and I prefer savory, that's mostly it.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. I wish that I could comment regarding the dishes you had that you felt were too sweet, but not knowing what you had for dinner, I hope you will come back and look at our entire Menu.

The food was delicious. The owners create the menu and everything was fresh, and local (when possible). It was the best meal we had in Playa. Do not skip dessert. They are homemade and fantastic. I had to go back a second night to get the brownie. The tilapia fish is cooked to perfection. The owner was very helpful and... More

When there is so much to choose from on 5th avenue, one can feel a little overwhelmed with the decision of where to eat- what a delight to find Salt Rock!

Two of our friends in Puerto Aventuras had been here for a great New Year's Eve dinner and recommended this restaurant to us. Our party of 6 had a wonderful dinner. Favorites were the special pork medallions in marsala, the Portobello Napoleon, and the excellent Jambalaya. Who would ever think that Jambalaya outside of New Orleans could be this good.... More

We could not be happier that your friends brought you specifically to Salt Rock after they had a great dinner with us with their friends on New Years Eve *I think that was a party of 13. We are not that far from Puerto Aventuras, so join us again soon. More
