Relaxed informal Argentine Steaks at a great price vs what you expect at the fancy steak houses. Excellent flank steak and Argentine Malbec on the street. JW

El Diez was a recommendation to us by another couple. It is on 5th and 28th (away from the crowds of Playa) and in a very nice area of restaurants. We had grilled octopus and churrasco to share for two people. Both of the dishes were extremely tasty. We also got margaritas and Clamato. Definitely recommend!

I had to send back my steak twice, the server never apologized. This place is seriously overrated. The quality of the meat was substandard. There are much better steaks out there in Riviera Maya. I am avoiding giving it 1 star because my wife had a slightly better experience. I asked for the manager and gave her my feedback- she... More

nothing special at all... the lasagna was - in fact - terrible. I should have known better. My wife had a shrimp skewer dish that was just like any other... I'd never go back.

For a place that bills itself an Argentine Steakhouse, you should have better cuts than flank and strip. The flavors are delicious however. Steak was under requested temp when delivered. The staff speaks less English than most places on 5th, but it very friendly and they got the custom orders right without having to repeat. The atmosphere is fun and... More

We went to this place for dinner as it is recommended in Lonely Planet. We weren't too hungry so we went for pizza and salad, although the guys shared choripan, which they report is really good. The salad was nice. We went for the greek and, although the herbs they use to season it are not typical of Greek salad,... More

Nicely located in the 5th avenue you can find this delicious restaurant, great cuts, empanadas and even Pizza, service is good and restaurant is always busy. I have visited this restaurant at least 4 times with family and friends and service, price and quality was consistently fine all the time. Pricing is mid range, so considering you are at the...

After visiting in 2014 I raved about this place to everyone and visited again last week I was so looking forward to it and it didn't meet my expectations. The food was ok and there was a dog running about which annoyed me as it kept going to my daughter. Overall I wouldn't rush back, it's a shame as I... More

This place was referred to us as a great pizza place and it lives up to it. Thin crust, brick oven and loaded with fresh toppings. Not a drunken, late night grab and go, but a sit down and enjoy every slice as you relax while watching the passers by.

Thank Bowlz
