Fabulous traditional Mayan food, excellent staff, and the affordability blew us away----we have dined at many upscale restaurants in the United States and can rarely have a bill under $200. We had drinks, appetizers, two full meals, and desert at Yaxche and it was only $60 (US)! We actually thought they under charged us and asked the waiter to ring our bill again---but it was right! For the quality of the food, the atmosphere, the service, the value---Yaxche is second to none! Delicious!

I have been to Yaxche five or six times and I am never disappointed. I had the sampler plate and it was excellent. The soup was fantastic. The Mayan dishes are well prepared and the flavors really are unusual. The new location is so upscale compared to the old one, but the food is consistent and excellent. I will go back the next time I am in Playa.

Service was nice, and perhaps a bit rushed. Food was great, although a bit on the salty side. They have standard enough dished for the less adventurous eater along with a good selection of more authentic dishes to try that are new without being weird.

Prices were reasonable.

We got our hotel to make a booking which was ok but when we got there they didn't have a table so told us we had to wait by the bar ... eventually we got a table on the pavement right at the corner, not the greatest place ... food was ok but given the hype it wasn't what we expected.

Not enough words to explain the magnificent gourmet experience.
Please do not miss on your trip to Playa and order a Chaya Margarita to start your dinner.
