“This is the most traditional place in Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is a great classic for lunch. They have a small selection of tacos and ceviches, but everything is well cook. Also they have a tomatoe salad that you can add to your tacos. And if you are hungry, believe me, this is a place to get a fast and great service!

“Shrimp tacos and beer!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is a no frills restaurant where the food demands attention, not the fancy surroundings. Just off the main highway through Playa del Carmen, you'll sit at a plastic table and a waiter will bring you fresh battered shrimp tacos and drinks in minutes. They do other food, but the shrimp tacos are what they're known for. We live in Playa and eat here whenever we get a chance.

“Local haunt for Amazing pescadaro (fried shrimp) tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

They're very popular with locals for the pescadaro (fried shrimp) tacos- which were very very tasty and affordable @ app USD$1.50/ taco for a generous amt of shrimp.
The ceviche was pretty yummy too, but everyone goes there for the fried shrimp tacos. We walked by a local who completely dispensed with tortilla wraps and ONLY ordered a huge portion (app 30 pieces) of fried shrimps. Wow.

“Fish, Seafood and Etc.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

La floresta is a great seafood restaurant. Very mexican in style and service (in a good way) with very fresh ingredients. Not in downtown Playa easy to miss from the Carretera.
