Yummy food, reasonably priced, good location, Nice staff, fun entertainment and clean bathrooms. This restaurant checks all of our boxes. It was nice to grab a cab, leave the Occidental Xcaret resort and venture out into the city for the evening. Highly recommended.

We have been going to La Parrilla 3-4 times a year for several years. Heard that it had changed ownership and there were some changes, so went to check it out. Same basic menu, same excellent service that we've enjoyed in the past. We were...given sauces but no chips; request of habanero sauce netted an acceptable (but not exceptional) sauce, and the 15% tip was automatically (annoyingly) added to the bill for a party of 3. Food was good, but more expensive than we remember. Would have given a bigger tip if it hadn't already been added. Won't be back this year (several other establishments will be repeats) but will check in next year.More

We had been patrons of this restaurant for the last decade, was always impressed by the food and service until our visit tonight. It has changed ownership as I was told after our meal. Very noticeable, they used to have the best fajitas in playa...with their sesame chicken delights now the recipe is meh, also now charged for take out of you left overs.Drinks still top shelf but does not compensate for lacking meal. Not going to be going back!More

great food and friendly staff. Situated in the middle of the town so very easy to find and reach. My wife and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The Mexican band pops in and plays around the restaurant. They visit many bars and restaurants and work...for tips.More

My wife and I have been visiting La Parrilla annually for eight years. Perhaps not again. Our most recent meal was disappointing. We each ordered mojitos and they seemed watered down. We started with a Azteca soup, and it was good. My wife had shrimp...enchiladas and they were ok. I ordered garlic shrimp, with rice and vegetables. When it arrived, the vegetables were hot - but not the shrimp or rice. I sent it back and two minutes later - fresh from the microwave, everything was hot. Authentic Mexican preparation? As an apology, we were given two small, watered down fruit juices - though our mojitos were clearly more than half full! A coffee or desert would have been a better offer. On the positive side, the location is great for people watching and the Mariachi band is always fun.More

Great Mexican food experience for our family overlooking 5th avenue. Coconut shrimp were delicious. Made at the table guacamole was a hit with the kids. Margueritas and Mojitos were so good we had seconds!!!

Seems they cut the menu in half. All our favorites were gone, basic menu now. Our waiter was in a bad mood, didn't put drinks on his head like all the others, said his head was broken. Asked for extra tortillas, never got them. Asked...for extra cheese came when almost done eating. None of the dishes were spectacular for the prices. Also popina was added on to our bill, only 4 people not a large party. Will not be going back, not worth it. No bueno!More

We came into Playa to specifically go here and had the higher end margherita drinks and Mexican Grill for 2, which could be for 3!! Dont forget the ajillo shrimp. We had some leftovers and had to pay 20 pesos for a takeout container. On...a $1300 peso ($80 US) and plans to stay longer, thought that was a bit annoying so left without spending anything on dessert or the tequila cart (which we had planned on, and has some amazing high end spirits I was looking forward to trying). Overall a good meal but we left annoyed at being nickle and dimed for a box to take our food away in.More

We had lunch as a family. The tacos al pastor were out of this world. The table prepared guacamole was also excellent. The alambre tacos were very good as well. Basically, this was up there with the best meal we had during our trip and...the service was perfect. Highly recommended!!!More
