Description: In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.

We had a craving for good seafood and found this gem of a place. As soon as we arrived we were seated next to the indoor fountain that was very nice. We were given a big board menu at our table, which worked out perfect because hubby forgot his glasses. The seafood feast for 2 was excellent everything was cooked to perfection and the wine was excellent.

It was the second last day of our trip and we were having some serious seafood cravings, so we stopped in at Blue Lobster for lunch. Probably the best decision we made! The staff were all very nice, and although the view isn't of the ocean, the décor is really great. We ordered the grilled lobster tail with pasta and it was INCREDIBLE! I will dream about that lobster tail. It was very fresh and didn't have a fishy flavor at all. I ordered the smallest sized tail and it was very filling! The pasta is a linguine with white wine sauce and it is scrumptious. If you are looking for a great meal, check this place out! I will dream about that lobster tail...

We ate here last night and had a wonderful dining experience! I had the jumbo shrimp with cilantro rice, husband had lobster risotto and our 7 yr old had jumbo shrimp and fries. It was the first time he'd cleared his plate since we got here! The food was cooked to perfection and the staff were friendly and attentive. What more could u ask for? Oh yeah the price tag was good for what we had too!

Please don't go here, was a huge disappointment. We ( 4 of us) picked this place as per the trip advisor reviews. The waiter propped up a wooden board with what kinds of lobster they make and steaks. Assured us that the lobster were fresh catch of the day. It all looked good, so we all picked lobster and to be prepared in different ways as indicated on the board. Thinking we were in for a real good dinner, it was teribble. Each dish was aweful. The lobster was so tough and stringy. I am a chef and prepare lobster dishes and the lobster they served is not fresh at all, I truly think the lobsters were cooked beforehand, than reheated. The bill was about $210.00USD. You can get way better food at Poila -try the Brazilian steak fantastic and way cheaper.
