Their new location is on 5th Ave. Their service is good and the food excellent, however we found much higher than expected prices and the atmosphere is not as quaint and original as their previous location, I'm afraid we may not be going back every time as we used to do.

This Mayan restaurant has the best food I had on the Quinta. They actually try to be authentic, use local ingredients, and don't seem to pander to tourists. We wound up eating there 3 times, after a truly wonderful 1st visit. Anyplace that uses chiles in cocktails is OK in my book.

We different servers on each visit, and the quality of service varied wildly. Definitely ask for recommendations, as the menu is extensive, and there are some clear misses. And above all else, sit outside.

If you visit playa del Carmen you should check out Yaxche. A nice upscale dining option located right on 5th avenue. The service and ambience are excellent. The food and drinks are wonderful.
