4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. The excellent margaritas were delivered stacked 3 tall on the waiter's head. Very cool. Food was good. Only negative was that they charged extra to pay by credit card.

Like most eateries they offered a set menu dinner for NYE and we really liked the options so we decided to try it out. Service was impeccable and the food exquisite. Margarita was amazing and delivered in a fun way. Decent menu for kids as well, nice of them to consider a separate menu that appeals to the little ones.... More

We truly appreciate that you chose to come back to see us on several occasions. This alone should be the best review with all of the competition we have in Playa del Carmen. Thank... More

We had a terrific lunch here. Food was good and the atmosphere was festive. The waiter delivered juice and margarita drinks to our table on his head, stacked three high! Fun!

The best meal we had in our week in Playa. Many options including seafood, steaks, pasta and some great authentic local dishes. It is like a high end American restaurant at a much lower price. The service was outstanding. There are about a dozen guys working there in a pretty small setting, so whatever you need will be taken care... More

We stopped here for lunch during a trip to the mainland on a stop over on a cruise we were on. The food was fantastic. The service was great. They took our picture when we first got there and then during the course of lunch printed it and attached it to a bottle of alcohol, making you feel more obligated... More

Based on other TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to go to Carboncitos for our first dinner in PDC. It is one storefront removed from busy 5th Ave and faces 4 North, behind Haagen Das. We originally did not see it and had to ask someone to locate it. We all had tacos and all were outstanding! Specifically we had the steak,... More
