Had salad, steak, and sides. Wife had a different salad and a crab cake. All excellent. By far the best steak we had while in Playa. Situated at 5av and Calle 10, neat patio. Great service. Fun. What else do you need on vacation?

People come here for steaks. I have been here many times with friends. The short rib steak is not that tender like the others, but has a very good flavor. The service is always very good. Try to get a seat on the street for people watching. Yesterday Sharon Stone happened to walk by.

First time there. Steaks were good. We also had the Argentinian empanadas (with chistorra and cheese) they were excellent. Ask for the baked ones. Not fried. We spend a few hours there and the waiters were very nice and attentive. Never felt rushed. I didn't give it a 5 because when we wanted to switch the sides that came with... More

Great steak and their own branded wine is really good to match. The place has recently been extended and kind of has the bare atmosphere of a chain restaurant, which is a real shame compared to how it used to be.

I was 2 days ago with my wife for dinner. The food was delicious if you like Argentinian food. We had the milanesa and the milanesa napolitana, they were both great dishes, highly recommended

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
