Best food in Playa del Carmen! We waited about an hour before they open (this was our decision to wait) but it was worth it. We asked for guacamole and refried beans as our appetizers, the beans are incredible delicious same as guacamole. My son...More

We ate here after it was recommended by several staff members at our resort. The food was delicious, they had a live band, and it felt very authentic. Make sure you have plenty of cash, as they do not accept cards.
