Description: In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.

“3rd meal in 13 years...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is our 3rd meal here in the last 13 years and it is still one of the best meals we have ever had. My hubby had the lobster - you pick your own tail, price is based on size - and I had the coconut shrimp. Simply delicious!

“Very Good Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is a little gem in Playa del Carmen... the decor is really cool and tropical. The palapa patio is a nice touch. We had great service, and the meal was fantastic. My wife and I order lobster tails, my wife grilled and mine steamed. The presentation was beautiful, and the square plates made for a modern feel. They have many options on the menu, so there is steak and sea food as well as lobster and shrimp. Overall this is a great restaurant, I will be back.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Go there every year. The food is good and also is the service. Had the shrimp and it was very good. My friend had the tuna it also was good. They no longer serve a free after dinner drink. It was lobster season and probably should have tried it.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We had a day in Playa Del Carmen and decided to eat at the Blue Lobster for lunch. Got there quite early but they accommodated us. Had the seafood soup for starters-yum. Our main courses were the prawns & the lobster tail. Both dishes were delicious. The staff were very friendly & efficient. Would high recommend the restaurant..
