Very good. My wife's cousin pick us up at a resort we were staying at and took us to this local place. We had shrimp tacos and a beer each. Definitely not a touristy place, but I felt welcomed and safe. Wish I had been able to go a few more times.

Seafood tacos that don't break the bank. They are of pretty good quality and it's relatively easy to get to the restaurant

We always make a stop or 2 here when we are in the area. The shrimp tacos are delicious! The pico is good and the micheladas are also fantastic!

This open air road side cafe is a pain to get to on foot but worth the effort. Its very popular and it is obvious why. A limited menu but every thing we tried in two visits was excellent.

I don't know how they do it, but the battered shrimp is crunchy-yummy on the outside and so JUICY on the inside. A must-have when in Playa Del Carmen (or if you're passing through on your way South).

The ceviche here seriously lacks flavour, so I wont order it again but the fish tacos were decent. Nice cool beer and clamato juice helps to wash it down :)

It is a tough competition for the best taco in Playa del Carmen, still I believe La Floresta wins by far. Their one free beer for each 2 tacos ordered can't be beaten. Besides that, they have the best Taco de camarones, the best Marlin Taco and the best Jaiba (Crab) Taco I've eaten so far. Even the plain fish... More
