We were a group of 12 with 2 kids and were looking for a nice steakhouse. Well El Sur was no disappointment. They are located on the 5th Avenue. They accommodated us and their service was exceptional. The meal was perfectly cooked and delicious. If you are looking for somewhere good with great service, this is it!!

I was eagerly anticipating our meal here and looking forward to a great steak, but have to say that i was disappointed. The steak was dry - even though only cooked medium rare - I'm not sure why, it was almost as if it hadn't been left to rest, or else had been left too long and then placed back... More

Right around the corner from our hotel, the meal was perhaps one of the two best we had while in Mexico. Perfectly cooked, with excellent sides. Service was impeccable. I'd eat here again any time I'm in Playa del Carmen.

I thought the food was great. My partner had the NY strip and I had the short ribs. I don't eat a lot of red meat, but what the heck it was our last dinner in Playa del Carmen. The bill was $60.00 which included our entrees, an appetizer, and 2 rounds of Coronas. The service was great, the bartenders... More

It's located on a very busy corner but it feels cozy. The service is very good and the wait staff is 5 star. One negative is the floor fans they use to keep you cool. They are extremely loud and you will find it difficult to hear other people at your table. The food was really good, however, it was... More

During a 2 week stay in Akumal, we visited Sur Steakhouse for my Dad's birthday after reading reviews and we were not disappointed. The place itself is situated in a great location on fifth avenue. The restaurant was amazing and we were seated at a large and comfy table. From the moment we walked in we were taken care of... More

After a trip to Xplor in Xcaret, we decided to eat at Sur in Play Del Carmen after a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed. We got there about 6:00pm and were the only ones in the restaurant, but as we left an hour later, the restaurant was almost full. The service was impeccable. It seemed like each... More

Appetizers were good. My kids loved the bread. The skewers were a bit bland. Service was excellent. Good ambiance.

We had dinner at Sur Steakhouse our first night in Playa - mostly since it was up the street from our condo and we were in the food for steak. The food was fine - but not on par with the above-average price. With all the great choices in Playa, I don't think we'll be back.
