We went to Blue Lobster on a weeknight. Service was great and it was nice to sit outside and feel the breeze off the water. The cerviche was OK, I didn't think it was great, but overall a good meal at a reasonable price.

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.

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

Description
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.
