There are 2 locations in playa with one closer to the centre on Consitutyon and the 2nd a little further out at 34th between 25&30. So we headed out today to the one further from here and we had a deeeelicious lunch. The restaurant itself... More

The food is great. One can eat shrimp cooked in a variety of styles and flavors from butter garlic to super spicy. It's a no frills spot with great food.

I've been to Playa every January for the past three years and this spot is right down the road from the condo I stay at. I make multiple trips here throughout my time in Playa and the food is always fantastic. I always order extra because everything is so fresh and they close fairly early so better to have leftovers...

The smoked tuna taco is the best taco I have ever had. I still dream about it two years later. Planning to return to Mexico, and I am tempted to come back to Playa Del Carmen just to have this taco. You have to go here.

I like to go there with my hubby and generally we have had a good service. Im Mexican and I have tried other amazing seafood places and I think this one is a little bit overpriced. But if you don't mind to pay a few more pesos then this wont be a problem. The micheladas with chamoy are really good!... More
