Food was okay. My wife had the tuna and I had the lobster pasta. For an appetizer we had the shrimp with cheese. Nothing special about the service or the food.

Happy hour drinks and excellent seafood! Lobster was grilled to perfection. The seafood platter had salmon, grouper, lobster, calimari, shrimp, mussels, and tuna. Two hungry people could not finish it. The service was perfect....not pushy, but available. Large menu with reasonable prices.

We went twice during our trip !First time was great! Lobster and Snapper was delicious! Next time the lobster bisque was awful and the waiter (Francisco) screwed up my order! Shrimp was ok ! I would only have Lobster! A decent meal $75 Canadian

Huge lobster collection. That's what they know. The rest of the food was OK, but the lobster was phenomenal.

This restaurant is a semi fancy seafood restaurant located in the heart of playa del carmen. I have been here more times than I can count and often order the lobster risotto-a dish I often crave once I am home. Service is always friendly. Its a nice open concept restaurant good for people watching. I would say the best restaurant... More

I had the ribeye and shrimp. Excellently cooked. Our group also had the salmon with dill and the seafood feast. All said their meal was excellent. Also served was fresh bread which also was very good. The service was prompt and courteous. A little bit more spendy than other locations in the area.

My husband and I had dinner here. The service was fantastic and the food was great. I had steak and lobster and my husband had the ribeye. Our steaks were delicious as was the lobster! Oh and the tuna carpaccio was amazeballs! The price was also really good for what we ate/drank. We will definitely visit the blue lobster again!

Here you can partly choose how you want your lobster served. It’s genial – you pick the headless fresh lobster you want by pointing it out – marked with weight and price! Very fresh and very good quality. The waiters make your stay comfortable and nice. Be aware of that the noisy neighbours start up around 10 pm – so... More

In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.
