We ate some soft tacos, it came with guacamole and some sauces. The beef and vegetables were good. Our waiter Carlos was very nice to us!

We came here as we had heard some good things about this restaurant. The seafood is mostly fresh (thus not frozen). In fact, the waiters will tell you if a certain fish filet is sourced frozen. This is good practice. We selected shrimp cocktail as a starter. It was very good, but not exceptional. As a main course, we selected... More

We had a birthday celabration here with 11 guest. Steak and Lobster, Fresh fillet of local fish, Giant prawns, salads, drinks, service, all good. Ask about the catch of the day. Right across from Mega on 30th. Away from the crowds on 5th. A pleasent surprize!

Not crowded, get the whole fish...incredible. Off the busy streets of 5th avenue in Playa Del Carmen, you would never stumble upon it.

We were directed towards this place by a Canadian woman who has been living in Playa for the past 10 years. Her description was spot on- amazing steak and lobster tails brought out on a skillet that's still sizzling! This included veggies and a baked potato and everything was perfectly cooked. We also had sangria and a mojito for drinks.... More

Went here after reading all the raves, but disappointed overall. I will say that nothing we ate was bad, but nothing was great either. We had the 660 peso seafood special that was 4 shrimp, some squid rings, diced octopus tentacles, and fish. Also had a smallish lobster tail with drawn butter and a couple beers. The dinner, with tip,... More

We have stopped here for Lunch several times before shopping at Mega across the street. You select the fresh fish and have it filleted. We prefer the fillets cooked in garlic - it is nicely served with vegetables. Good food - Great service !

Really great service, the cook know's how to prepare a langoustine from the grill, the plate is very nice decorated. For desert we had a flamed banana with ice and it was prepared at the table so you can enjoy the show. The prices are very good! I would say the best I have eating in Playa del Carmen.

We were in Playa three weeks ago and had a great meal there twice. The price was incredible. $35 for a 12 ounce tail and a shrimp dinner. I recommend the lobster tail be steamed as that is the most tender. The service was great.

Have dined here several times and it is always great. Had 3 lobster tails for about $30 and it was more than I could eat. They do a nice Mayan coffee.
