Seriously one of my favorite meals. Our water was wonderful - he gave us great wine selections and made sure our meals were absolutely perfect. I had a white fish in a balsamic reduction and ate the entire plate. The tenderloin and steak were amazing as well, coming from someone who doesn't usually like red meat. Then, the duche de... More

Lets start saying that the service provided by Jorge was amazing. The ambiance was good and we had a great time. The cheese and spinach empanadas were incredible tastefull and just made! The cheese pouring out of it was the best! The salmon was tasteful and well made, the selection of drinks it's big and they have good products. P.S... More

Sur makes me feel like I'm in Miami or Cannes but the salmon was very tasty. It's a bit pricy but they do a great job taking care of their customers.

Let's start with the postives, Armando, our server, was excellent. That is the end of my positives. The bread that came out first was undercooked and tasted like something you'd buy at the grocery store and heat up in your oven. We started with the burata salad, which included tough arugula and tomatoes that were not ripe. The grilled octopus... More

We had a large group of 9 and they were very accommodating and the food was very good. Chicken, Steak and fish were all great. My daughter had the pasta which she didn't like and I think it was the cheese that was different then what she is used to. Atmosphere and service were all great!

Stopped at Sur before we drive back to the airport. As we were on a timeline, the staff was great. Got us in and out in 45 minutes. Empanadas were good to start. I had a flank steak medium rare that was excellent with the chimichuri sauce. Wife has a very nice simple salad with a great lemon dressing. Son... More

Best steak house in Playa. Went two nights in a row. Jairo the manager was great. Ask for the entraña as your main course, the carnitas de atun as a starter. Luis our waiter and Javier for the second night were great. Also, try the sangria!

great food, grilled octopus was amazing. Family friendly, and tentative staff. Filets and three pepper tuna were primary entrees at table, all good right and enjoyed by all. Glad we went, and would go back.

We went for appetizers and they were all so good we could have skipped dinner. The service was also excellent and very fast for our large group. Great location too.
