Ate here with my girlfriend and ordered a dish with salmon and fussili. Salmon still had couple of fish bones (that can always happen) but the fussili was WAY overcooked and was disgusting. My girlfriend didn't really complain about her food just that it was way too much money for her salad. Maybe the other dishes are good but I... More

Sur in Playa has been one of my favorites for several years. It recently moved last year from its original location on 5th street to a few blocks down. Its still larger and is still open to the 5th street. The old place was more intimate but the entire block is be developed by investors in a mall, boo hoo,... More

We stayed at a very all inclusive, exclusive resort while in Playa. We ate at Sur for dinner one night while in the downtown area. This was the best meal we had the entire week. Our service was great, wine by the glass was great.

Very nice ambiance (felt a bit South Beach/Las Olas Ft. Lauderdaleish) and customer service. The watermelon and the basil martini's were excellent (was much needed after the watered down drinks at the resort we stayed at). And, if you love empanadas the beef was excellent.

We stumbled on to Sur a few years back and have made a point of eating here every time we come to Playa! Great food and a fun time.

Note, I didn't say...great food. The food is good but, there are more economically priced Argentine restaurants in town. What this place does boast, however, is a great atmosphere for people watching right along a busy stretch of 5th Ave.

Dear PShankel, Thank you very much for your comments, we are very happy to hear you enjoyed the atmosphere at Sur, we absolutely agree with you since 5th ave. and 10th st. is the "IN" corner at Playa del Carmen. Also, note that the management has reviewed your comment regarding the food, and immediate action will be taken. We hope... More

Sur has easily become our favorite restaurant in Playa. The new location is stunningly beautiful...the best spot for people watching.... the bar staff is friendly and they make a killer martini! Great menu and wine list. The service is absolutely impeccable and they treat us like VIP's every time we turn up. Misha and his staff fawn all over my... More

We stopped here for a pre-dinner drink because the bar is very appealing, especially after dark when it's lit up. I had no idea what kind if a restaurant it was but after we tasted their basil martini, we returned on two more occasions! And that's saying a lot because their drinks cost as much as in Vancouver. The bartenders... More

Nice open air seating and attentive servers. The food was sub par and not worth the price. Rib eye was three quarters fat, pasta dishes were ok but not great like others were in Playa. You can do better at many other restaurants right within a few blocks.
