I made a reservation ahead of time since it seemed to be such a popular place. We arrived 5 minutes ahead of time and the place was a ghost town. We walked down the stairs and into the bar where there were only 2 people seated. It took several minutes before we were acknowledged and shown to a table in the main dining area. We got to pick one right by the cenote since there was no one else there. Our wait service was good and the wine was pretty good. I asked for a wine list but the waiter simply offered a chardonnay and a savignon blanc. When I asked about a red, he then offered a merlot or cabernet. I have no idea what vinyards they came from since I never saw them on the menu, however, the merlot was good. The biggest disappointment came from our main course. I ordered the ribeye and my husband had the surf and turf. BOTH of our steaks were overcooked and just flat out inconsistently cooked. The cost of the meal was several times what we paid for any of our other meals in Playa and was the worst of the bunch, I am sorry to say. It is a really cool place to go and explore and maybe have a drink or two, but I will not return for dinner.
