Try the Rock Shrimp either as a Starter or Main dish. Great waiters (male and female) that speak English. Have eaten there several times and never a bad dish. Prices are great!

You can have delicious dishes with nice setting and good service. My teenage girls loved this place. The music they played was also very nice. This became one of my favorite restaurants in Playa de Carmen.

First night in PDC and we chose Trujillos as we walked by in the evening. We were seated upstairs, which was fantastic, eating in the tree canopy. Most dishes were served on small, heavy, wooden planks, which added to the atmosphere. Yummy, creative seafood.

I arrived at the bar near 11pm on a Tuesday, and while the kitchen was closed, I have some really delicious cocktails. The bartenders are friendly and the space is beautifully designed. Definitely will visit again, only earlier to try their food.
