Fantastic food and service. Had a variety of food and everyone left happy and full. Amazing salmon and lobster mac and cheese! Excellent wine list. Very cute, very modern, and clean.

We went to Plank, which is in a great location off 5th, for dinner on a Tuesday night. Place was moderately busy but we were greeted and seated promptly. Our server, Perla, was outstanding and really made the night enjoyable for us. She paced everything perfectly, and just in general the service was impeccable at least on this night. Glasses... More

Friends recommended this restaurant and we were so wonderfully surprised. The ambiance was great, the food was even better and the prices were reasonable. I would recommend this to ALL who visit Playa del Carmen and we will definitely visit this location during our next visit-----more than once.

We had read so many nice reviews about this place on Tripadvisor, and were both looking forward to visiting. We noticed the food was expensive compared to other restaurants in Playa, but figured we'd try it and expected it to be excellent! We ordered the duck and a beef, both costing around 700 pesos each, and all though the food... More

Stopped in for dinner our first night in Playa after traveling. Our service was stellar, the food was good. I should have skipped Catch and revisited here another night.

We had a very good dinner here while on vacation in Playa del Carmen. The restaurant is open to a quiet street and very nicely decorated in a contemporary style. The salads are very fresh and big enough to share. The beef Wellington was perfect - a big enough piece of beef with a cross hatch of pastry. There was... More

This is basically a steak and seafood place. High quality for price (comparing to the US) but expensive for Playa. The amazing things we saw brought out were the skewers - the presentation is phenomenal...we did not order those but I would recommend. We also saw a number of the entrees and they all looked good. We ordered a number... More

Saved going to Plank until the last evening and wasn't disappointed. It's not that far from the main drag, but it would be difficult to find it if you didn't know it was there (thanks TripAdvisor). Seafood was excellent and the smoked sampler (ribs, brisket and pork fillet) to die for; simply melted in the mouth. Wine was decent and... More
