We dined at El Diez as it was suggested by a local. For an appetizer we had the prosciutto with bocconcini which was just that. An order of breaded chicken which was huge came with a side salad. I didn't care for the consistency of the chicken...a little rubbery. The arrachera special was flavourful but too junked up with other... More

What can I say...my wife is an Argentinian and very critical of restaurants that claim to be authentic Argentinian. Well...she had nothing bad to say about our 2 visits there this past trip. My favorite is the choripan with a side of french fries. My daughter loved the baked cheese casserol. My son ordered skirt steak and my wife ordered... More

Great People watching place. The empanadas were very good. The sirloin steak was very juicy and full of flavor. Great service. The meat soup was not to be missed. We will be back.

It was pouring rain when we pulled up to 5th ave. But since this place is right on the street, we managed to get inside very quickly. The food was pretty quick and everything was great. The meat cooked

Well located. Service was OK, for playa del Carmen standards and Christmas high season. The El 10 was not bad for the price and we recommend the steak called " bife de chorizo". For he kids arrechera steak with French fries are the way to go. Always pay in pesos and ask him to bring you the wireless machine. Don't... More

This is a 5th Avenue steakhouse that is not like the others. It's not an overpriced tourist trap with mediocre food. The staff is great and the food is great. I have been there twice since I arrived in Playa and my final meal before going home will be there as well. The chimichurri is so good! Thanks El Diez!

We had a late night snack (empanadas) fried and/oven roasted. They were delish!! The location is great, the waiter was very pleasant but the cc terminal was not working properly :( all in all a great experience. Very cozy spot.

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
