“Fantastic Italian”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We stopped in after walking up & down 5th Ave. looking for a fun Italian spot. The glass bar had great decor and outdoor seating so we chose it and we were thrilled we did. We were given amuse bouche prior to the start of our meal (some smoked salmon) which the fish eaters of the group really enjoyed. For dinner, two people got salad but they were big enough to share with the four of us. For dinner one had the steak and asparagus (yum), one had the chicken roulades with homemade veggie ravioli (delicious), two had the seafood dish with a little bit of everything (octopus, lobster, fish) and loved it. Fantastic wine list, not very kid-friendly but definitely romantic. We also got a complimentary dessert plate with mini biscotti and meringues at the end of the meal which was perfect.

“Great food in the heart of it all!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Stopped in the Glass Bar for a drink and ended up staying for dinner. Great location and great people watching. The staff was great and the food amazing! Worth a return visit next time in Playa.

“Great Food”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Wonderful food and the prices are not too bad either. Great selection and the service was great as well. We find the Italian dining in Playa spectacular but this restaurant tops the others. The seafood was amazing, I had the octopus. We went with children but would recommend it more for an adult experience.

“Milanese perfection.”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Probably one of the best Italian dinners I've had outside of Italy.
Could not fault anything and our waiter was a great reference for all the dishes on the menu and the excellent and extensive wine list. The lasagna was delicious. Thanks for a great evening.

“Glass Bar, Excellent”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We went twice in the same week. This is probably the best food and service we have ever experienced in Playa Del Carmen, from the sample wine tasting when first seated to the complimentary cookies and after dinner drink when finished dining, the whole experience of food and drink was superb! Food was great and the service was out of this world. The imported wine from Italy was also a treat.
