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.

“Fantastic food and awesome service”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Read about the blue lobster on trip advisor and though why not give it a go. Well we were pleasantly surprised. The food was fabulous and the service very entertaining. The six of us thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. Would definitely go back again when we are next in Mexico.

“Huge Lobster Tails”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had eaten here before a couple of years back, and I was hungry for lobster so we thought we would go back this year. The lobster tails are huge. I got the smallest one and I couldn't finish it which says a lot because I can usually eat a pretty large amount of food and I never let lobster go to waste! I got it grilled and it was cooked just right. Hubby got the sea bass and said it was very good as well. Service was good and so was the mango margarita!

“very nice sea sood restaurant”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

we were really satisfied by this restaurant. it is located in the center of Playa del Carmen, close to the 5th Avenida, the environment so nice, the menu catalogue so clever!!! they brought us a very big poster like a lobster tail, that was the menu....food was very nice, we had lobster with pasta, a stuffed fsh (a mexican one), a nice salad and wine. the prices were ok, not too cheap but cheaper than in our country for this food. The stuff was very good, always smiling and trying to serve us the best way.

“Great food, good price”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We had heard that theh Blue
Lobster was good, so we made a point of going there last week while staying in Rivera Maya. It was pretty humid at lunch time and we were sweating and wondering if it was worth it while we waited for our food. But the seafood dishes the we ordered were very good and worth the heat.
