“GREAT NEW RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We stopped here while doing some shopping down at the 5th avenue plaza shopping area.The food here was fresh and delicious!I ordered the guacamole and shrimp tacos, and they were awesome! The atmosphere in the restaurant was wonderful and the wait staff (silverio was our waiter) was very friendly and nice. Also, the prices were extremely reasonable. I would totally recommend checking out this restaurant if you are in the Playa del Carmen area.

“Authentic Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

A place to go for some authentic local flavors. Nothing can compare to the chiles rellenos dish. It was an unexpected explosion of flavor! Added bonus of being a vegetarian dish. Chef came out to chat, and the waiter was very nice. Great service. Koi pond in below the main dining area.

The restaurant is set back a little bit from the adjacent businesses, so it can be easy to walk by without spotting.

“Mexico Gourmet!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A new little restaurant on 5th Ave. and 12th that offers a menu steeped
in history and exquisite flavors!! The food is exceptional and the ambiance is delightful.......a water feature with large fish circulates around and under walkways to intimate tables or larger table groupings......a feast for all your senses.
