Location and contact

El "Patio 8" se encunetra en una de la zonas más céntricas de Playa del Carmen, calle 8 y quinta avenida. Con un gran salón abierto decorado con un mural, pantallas y una gran contrabarra que es tan grande que seria casi inevitable no voltear a verla. Entre ladrillos, estructura de acero y maderas se esconde la cocina con un tipo de comida mexicana contemporánea.
