After having read all of the positive reviews, we decided to go for a bite, having high expectations. It took a while before the waiter decided to attend to our table. The first THREE drinks we wanted to order were sold out. They didn't even...have lemonade left. Hamburgers, same thing. We were annoyingly pointed at the 'limited availability' of some of the burgers. Why put the simplest of burgers on the dinner menu if you're only serving them until 5PM? We were on the brink of leaving, which we told the waiter. 'Luckily', our third choice was available. We will definitely not be returning to this place. Their are better choices in town if you're looking for a good and juicy burger. The burgers at McDonald's are just as good and note completely drenched in grease.More

Mu is a bit of a hidden gem away from the bustle of 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the restaurant. The menu contained a number of very interesting dishes and an array of delicious...sounding burgers which we’d love to try if we come back to the area. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. Our burgers were perfectly cooked and really exceptional. We would highly recommended the Lolita (blue cheese, bacon, caramelised onion) and the Llamada Deseo (truffle mayo, portobello mushroom, bacon). The drinks menu was additionally impressive with a variety of local Mexican beer on offer. Overall a great experience, some of the best burgers we’ve ever had (and we’ve had a lot!) and we were well looked after by a lovely team of staff.More

Bad service! I have noticed the turn over of the waiting staff. The waiters are different every time. The portions are getting smaller and smaller. The prices have triple since they first opened. I think Carl Junior’s is a better option!!!

I had a bad experience at Mu on 10th (poor service, very loud music), but wanted to try the Mu on 40th and it was excellent. The service, the food, the ambiance, the music. My husband had one of their burgers (bacon, cheese and I...don't remember what else) and I had the grilled tuna "burger" (served with avocado, pineapple etc). My husband had their regular fries and I had their sweet potato fries (my husband, who doesn't like sweet potatoes, loved them). Again, everything was absolutely perfect, especially our waiter Darwin who came over several times to make sure all was well.More

The food and service was fantastic, I’m so glad we visited this hidden gem in playa del carmen. Easily the best food and drinks we’ve had whilst in Mexico. Julian was our server and couldn’t do enough for us. A gentlemen who seemed like the...manager or owner was again so helpful and even ordered a taxi to our hotel for us. Thanks for a fantastic evening, it made our holidayMore

Stopped in tonight after a friend in PDC recommended it. We are from NYC and kind of spoiled about food but our burgers were great! Freddie and Ellie who waited on us were so nice and accommodating. We also loved the ambiance of the place....Would definitely recommend if you want a great burger in Playa del Carmen!More

We ate at Mu on the 10th twice. So this time we chose the 404h Avenida. To be clear. The restaurant as such is much nicer then the 10th. A lot of space and very cozy. I started of with an amazing maracuja lemonade and...all dandy. Then the croquetas came.....the worst i had in a long time. My burger (the Mu burger) was nice but very very soggy......So much butter on the buns to toast them.....it ruined all other taste. Mu is a super nice place to chill out but this time the food was dissapointing......More

We tried to get in to MU on 10th ave but even after waiting to be greeted (the hostess said she would check because they had some reservations) the hostess did not return in the 15 minutes we waited. We eventually saw her working on...a speaker with the intent of making the music so loud that you could not talk. We gave up and walked to the MU on 40th ave where we were promptly greeted and seated by Darwin who was absolutely wonderful to deal with. We had the tuna burger and the double hamburger which were cooked perfectly and very tasty.More

I am a hamburger snob. Im from texas and we know our beef. I was not expecting the incredible burger I received. Omg. So good. I had the La Lolita and my husband raved about his burger as well . top that off with the...first IPA i’ve found in Mexico (Spectra is very good too), Im finally a happy girl. Excellent restaurant and service. They were out of the Don Julio drink my husband wanted but everything else was 100% spot on.More
