Located right on the 5th we were concerned this is a tourist trap. Well - it is a trap I am willing to be caught in... Food is very good - empanadas for starters were a delight, and the mixed seafood as well. For main courses had a good fillet steak and hamburger. So why not 5 stars? The salad... More

By far the best steak in Playa! The sesame tuna, chocolate bomb & fresh ginger martinis are all must orders as well. Love the staff, especially Jorge & Misha! Must go when in Playa

A great list of appetizers and drinks to start. Don't pass up on the corn epinadas, a recommendation by the waiter and a great way to start. The beans with chorizo and black sausage were also very good. They have a rather giving bartender, and the drinks were well made and rather strong. The location is excellent, and the people... More

This restaurant is large and noisy. The service is great and the food is high quality but I don't think it is worth the high prices. The portions are enormous, so unless you are a very big eater you can share your main course. The smallest steaks are 14oz!

We've eaten at Sur on each of our four trips to Playa (2x on 3rd trip), and have never been disappointed. The tuna is some of the thickest cuts, and best tasting, we've had anywhere. The grouper was also very good, as was the service. The new place has a little more upscale feel, but it is still casual enough... More

We have never had a bad meal at Sur and we have been coming to PDC for 5 years. The new location is great, the bar looks incredible, food is outstanding and service is out of this world! It's a bit pricey for Playa standards but definitely worth it. Try it out - you won't regret it!

We were really excited to go back to Sur as we had eaten there last year. They are in a large new building but the tables seem closer together and if you havent been to Mexico before-you may be seated next to smokers when the seating is outdoors. So now two things were frustrating-my husbands steak was blandly seasoned and... More

From start to finish this was the best and most consistent dining experience we've ever had in Playa del Carmen. Great alcohol selection and wine list. The bread with garlic and 3 sauces were delicious - the empanadas were top notch. Both of the menu selections were flat-out amazing - you must try the Mendoza Chicken - my wife will... More
