Skip the chain restaurants out by the pier and go to Los Otates. The food is incredible. Truly authentic and sitting in the open air is a great atmosphere. You will not be disappointed.

Was recommended this from Chris at Villa Aldora while I was there diving.... and it was great. I had planned to go to different places each night for dinner but this one I went to twice. Great hole in the wall place.

Never looked for one. Always get tacos al pastor. No Spotted Cow. Must try Fogon in Playa del Carmen. Their Queso Fundido is incredible.
