If you're new to Argentinian grill menus I'd suggest the "mixta". One of a kind ambiance only meters from Playa Carmen in an open air, open pit dining "experience". Gracious on-site owner/managers and a staff that hit all the markers. Arguably the best ribs I...More

We liked this place so much that we went twice during our 3 nights stay. The meat, the choripan and the desserts are delicious! Not very impressed with the meat empanada though.

I like meat. I like meat cooked over a flame. Las Piedras cooks meat very nicely over a flame. I like Las Piedras! Also, the staff were friendly and the restaurant was pretty well kept.

If you are a meat lover (like me) you should definitely check out Las Piedras. My husband and I shared the mixed grill for two. It was very tasty, especially the steak. We actually couldn't finish everything. Reasonable prices and generous portions.

We had the opportunity to enjoy this little gem again over the holidays. Meat on the grill sums this place up. Outdoor bbq pit. Very authentic. Decent prices. It can get very hot in there. Drink plenty of cold beers and pour on the Lizano...More

We drove almost 40 min there for dinner to check it out. But, we were highly disappointed- the steak was barely ok at best. I know my way around beef and steak- been to Buenos Aires, top rated steakhouses in New York and authentic hole-in-the-wall...More
