This place had the freshest seafood I'v ever had! Although it's pricey, it will be one of your best meals in Playa del Carmen. The lobster tail came with delicious sauce and flavoring. The skewer of vegetables on the side was a good portion. Our family of four spent about 100$ which is not bad. We walked out with full... More

Our 3rd trip this year but this time we brought our son and his girlfriend. Again the food and service did not disappoint. We ordered guacamole and shrimp as an appetizer. For our main course all four of us picked out our lobster and had it broiled with steamed vegetables and pasta. We left with full bellies and headed back... More

Nice atmosphere and tasty food. My son and I split the seafood platter and it was excellent. All items cooked perfectly except for the shrimp (it was a little overcooked). There was a ton of food and was plenty for both of us.

I had the lobster of course and a piece of steak and it was just fantastic. The second floor area has a fully running AC system that keeps the temperature in check so that you can enjoy your food and drinks. A must to visit while walking around the 5th avenue in Playa del Carmen.

Beautiful lobster, excellent well cooked. I had a great time there as the service was awesome too. Lobster is always better with some wine, specially Mexican or French. I will definitely come back as soon as I can.

Went back to the Blue Parrot and was pleasantly surprised that the food was still splendid. Had a giant lobster that was excellent. Nice wait staff and the perfect spot.

Went here to have lobster and, after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to give it a try. The service was outstanding, friendly and attentive. We choose our lobster and it was served broiled to perfection. I highly recommend Blue Lobster if you are looking for great food.

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.
