I went here with friend who have lived on the island for years and it’s one of their favorite spots. Fantastic tacos and friendly service. I would highly recommend this local place everyone.

This place is a couple blocks off the main road in a little courtyard open air restaurant. Amazing tacos, fundido, pastor, gringas, etc. We came for lunch and the food and staff were great!

Simple but amazing made-to-order tacos. Tried several different kinds and they were all delicious. Staff was friendly and we had no problem communicating even with my very broken Spanish.

Loved this one. You pay only around 0.50€ for a taco and it just tastes great. The place itself is nothing fancy, but how you’d imagine a normal local restaurant.

Los Otates is the best bang for your buck on the island. The prices are incredibly affordable, and the food quality is great. Staff members were patient with my terrible Spanish. I'm a vegetarian and they made me some tasty veggie tacos. I think the...More

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