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've been going to Playa del Carmen since it was a tiny little village a few blocks deep from the beach. Thinking back, the Blue Lobster has been there since the town started it's growth. We've eaten there several times over the years and it's always been great. Service, food quality and presentation are typical of PdC which is why we love it there. I wouldn't be afraid to order anything on the menu.

We asked several guests who knew Playa del Carmen well about seafood restaurants. Everyone said "Blue Lobster" and they weren't wrong. The lobsters are cooked fresh - you pick 'em; they steam or broil 'em!

My then fiancé and I ate at this restaurant in 2009; we have been back to the area several times and always wanted to go back but weren't sure of the name. We asked and decided with our friends to go and find out if it was the same place, IT WAS! We chose our lobster tails, my friend thought she wanted to share because of the size, the rest of us didn't want to share so she got her own. They broiled the lobster and it was PERFECT! No one left any on their plates, just outstanding food and service, we will go back.
