“Mestizo Dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

this restaurant first of all is located right in the heart of playa del carmen, where everything happens on the corner of 12th and 5th, so you cant miss it! when you walk in, you see these sort of hanging bungalow sections, that are divided by a river of koy fish on the bottom. the service is great, the food is pleasent, I would definetly recommend it to others as they walk along the main street in beautiful Playa del Carmen. Muchas Gracias por recibirme Mestizo! Un placer.

“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.
