Excellent place to have dinner and some drinks before a night out in Playa del Carmen. There's great music, great food, great service. It's a must in Playa.

Such a fun atmosphere in El Diablito.... it is the perfect spot before a night out! Particularly recommend the House Salad (seriously try it!) and the shrimp. The Dj is amazing playing a great mix of tunes that just make you wanna daaaaance!

Diablito was soooooo good! The sushi, the tuna, the fried rice, the sashimi, the fried ice cream - EVERYTHING WAS SOO GOOOD. THe prices are in pesos but you divide eveyrthing by 11 and it gives you the value in dollars. Great place!

This local restaurant bar is a must while being in Playa.... its located at the heart of all the action in downtown.... The food was delicious... you really should try their Roca Shrimp and Tuna Tataki.... The only thing is that after 10, this very authentic place turns into a full throttle bar and the music gets a bit loud... More

Diablito Cha Cha Cha is one of my favorite restaurants in Playa del Carmen...the food will blow your mind (the grilled octupus is delicious and so is their sushi). People looking for quite romantic dinner should not go here as it's located right across the street from the club district....

We really enjoyed our dinner here and a nice change from the foe we had been eating. The crab claws are a must as are the tuna tostadas. yes it is noisy because of the club across the street, so conversation takes strong lungs, but most all of the restaurants on Main Street or streets close to it are noisy...

The environment here is nice, and if you're looking to go to a club soon after dinner, you need only walk a few steps in any direction to find one. I really liked the fruity drinks and the sushi that I ordered, as did my boyfriend. Our other friends enjoyed the steak skewers, but both had tummy aches later that... More

Stopped by to get some drinks but it was simply impossible to even say a thing to my partner. The music next door is simply too loud that can't hear what they are playing, specially if you seat in the corners. The music Diablito bar plays is very boring. It makes no sense to have a launch bar next to... More
