Living in Playa you have many many options for brunch and dinner; by far this has always been our favorite, brunch is the best, and once a month, around the 15th they have a special menu from a different country, exquisite!

We had the first dinner of our vacation here, on a quiet Tuesday night, and were blown away with the quality of food and service. We had the tuna tar tar to start and it was meticulously prepared and so flavourful. For our mains, we had the sea bass and the Asian fusion ribeye. The sea bass was fresh and... More

This is the place if you are looking for something a lot quieter than the 5th avenue. The place is on the most beautiful street of Playa Del Carmen. The restaurant is very charming and the menu is very different from other restaurants. The quality of the food plus the service make this place a sanctuary for foodies. It gets... More

Breakfast for two on a Sunday morning was relaxing, scrumptious and the service was the absolute best we experienced. We loved the fruit and pastry basket. Must try the homemade jam! It was my fave!

Went here after being stuck at an Iberostar all-inclusive for a week. Finally some really good food, had the salmon which was perfect. Cucumber-Mojito cocktail is one of the best I had on my entire holidays. Not even expensive. Go here, you wont regret.

We had a wonderful dinner. The food is absolutely amazing and service is incredible. Scallops in cucumber dressing and home made lemonchello wouldn't left anyone indifferent.

Located very near where our condo was (ocean plaza). Recommended by our airBnB host and it was very good. We had breakfast around 11am. Both meals came with a juice, basket of pastries, fruit plates with yogurt/honey/granola. I ordered moltulenos (tostada, fried egg, ham, peas, cheese, fried plantains with red sauce) and it was quite tasty, the tostada maintained its... More

4 of us went for dinner here and sat outside... away from the hustle and bustle of 5th, it was possibly the best meal we had all had. The curry was amazing! The fish - so fresh. Service was perfection! Can't wait to go back.
