Great ambience with all the trees and plants. Tables are a nice comfortable...distance apart. Thanks Miguel for the great service, hoping to return before we leave.More

Restaurant suggested by the lonely planet guide, and it has not disappointed. Soup coconut and shrimps highly recommended! A bit crowded, but it is typical for Playa del Carmen. Price in the average.

We were very tired of the people trying to get you to go to their restaurant on the Main Street of playa del Carmen, so we decided to walk just a tiny bit more and found this lovely place. The restaurant has a very good...vibe, it feels like eating in the jungle! The food was absolutely amazing, we shared some starters and some main meals and in my opinion I had the best guacamole of my life (hey I am just a white girl what can I say). We also had some delicious daiquiri, they were so good especially the one with lemon, we really enjoyed ourselves there. Prices were good for the service and the quality, we definitely recommend it!More

Love, love, love this restaurant and would tell anybody they should try it. Has delicious options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The sauces and the Molé is the best I’ve ever had. The chicken mole was delicious. My partner had the shrimp tacos and the tuna...tostadas. My friend had the fish of the day which was Dorado, which was fantastic. The ambience is so fun it feels like you’re in a tropical jungle. You need to try this restaurant. It is delicious!!More

The atmosphere and food is amazing. The restaurant has a jungle theme and if you are lucky you will see monkeys hanging around. We had breakfast there twice during our vacation and will be back on our next trip. Incredible selection and amazing pricing. Be...sure to put this on your list of places to go. We highly recommend it.More

Very comfy place to have breakfast. We asked for Chilaquiles with Chipotle and Chicken. Good portion and great flavor. Refill coffee has a great taste. They did not have splenda or sugar substitutes. Juice of the day (orange, watermelon and guayaba) was the best. Service...was great despite being at full capacity.More

Really enjoyed! The vibe of the place really made it, you feel like you’re in the jungle but with much needed fans. Crepes were very good, amazing empanadas, very heavy on the cheese in eggs if you get them though. The pan dulce prior to...the meal was good too (though I don’t have a comparison). Overall had a positive experience!More
