Took a walk last night to the Blue Parrot as we heard Crazy Toy was playing. We love this band they play a lot of the 80's music. We hadn't decided what or were we going to have supper. We got the menu and decided to eat there. I had their rib basket and they were fall off the bone... More

We came down for a couple of days to watch the Eurocup. Fun spot, good service and amazing shrimp tacos. They let the girls swim in their pool while my son and I watched the soccer. We'll come back!

The environment at this restaurant is really good and you get to chose which lobster you want. I had the white fish which was really tasteless with no flavour at all. I found the meal quite dull. We had read good reviews but we were disappointed and wouldn't go back.

Visited the Blue Parrott twice during my most recent visit to Playa Del Carmen. The chairs at the blue Parrott were in good shape and very comfortable. The service was great one day and just OK the next. I liked that they had a bit more space between the loungers then other areas on the beach strip. The beach is... More

We stopped here on a rainy day in Playa after shopping to have a cold beer. When approached by the waiter he said they had a special going on for $5 bottles of beer---WHAT?!?!? This was our 2nd trip to town that week and we had never had to pay $5 for a bottle of beer anywhere. Needless to say,... More

Went to the Blue Parrot to check out the beach club and restaurant after many years. Place really has changed. Now its a very trendy beach club, restaurant, night club and hotel. Problem is the beach is almost completely gone and place is trying a bit too hard to be hip. For the afternoon I stopped by it was actually... More

I was here everyday to use the Beach Club and really fell in love with this place -- seems to be a new kitchen and the food is to die for - I had the Thai Wings and the Blue Cheese Burger both were awesome!!

Hi New Yorker-Solo, Thanks for visiting us and enjoying our restaurant. We took upon ourselves to put a strong focus on our food when we took over here and it's reviews like this that help us know that we're heading in the right direction. Please return again on your next trip to Playa. Thank you. Andy D. More

Thanks for visiting us. Yes most people think we are just a 12th street nightclub but we have made the day operation and restaurant a priority and it seems to be heading in the right direction. Please visit us again soon! Thank you. Andy D. More
