The founder has moved on and it shows in the pad thai. But they still serve the best Swedish meatballs in town. We are a mid-forties American professional couple with no children. We have lived in Chicago, NY, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo and Hong Kong. We...More

Oh my God the food here is beyond words. I don't remeber the service being great but it definitely doesn't matter once you get a Tom Kha Gai that will make your mind explode.

This is a great place, friendly staff, delicious food with large portions. They offer 1/2 size portions which would probably satisfy most.

Mojitos are fantastic here! I had the cashew and shrimp noodles, and it was excellent, enough for 2 meals. Service was good and it the place has a cool vibe. I'll be back!

Really good food. Although it sounds odd, their Swedish meatballs are unbelievable. Great place for something a little different in Playa.

We suggested meeting friends for dinner at Babe's, as from our first visit it has been one of our PDC favorites. It was far less packed than any of other other visits, which meant no waiting to be seated. The food was great, as usual....More

Hello, a friend just got back from Playa and said that Babe's was closed. Did you visit the original location located between 5th and 10th Avenue? We're hoping she was referring to their other location (which is/was newer), and not this one. Much thanks!!!

Also, I live in Mexico and September and October are our slowest months for tourism. Many businesses close part of these months for vacation.
