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.

Lobster fixed any way you like it . Coconut shrimp was just ok. But they do have Coors Light if u are looking for an alternative to Mexican beer. Off the Main Street and close to the beach. Good service but they try to make u think your only choice for a tip is 20 or 30%. Pay attention to what you select if putting on credit card.

We visited after a recommendation from fellow guests at our resort.
Good Filet Mignon with Lobster at good reasonable price.
Service was good and all in all good value for money.

Good food, a bit pricey though even by US standards. The restaurant itself is laid out really neatly. They also have some gigantic lobster tails that varied in price from 380 pesos to upwards of 790 pesos (massive tail). My wife and I shard some coconut prawns that were good. They also brought a fan over to keep us cool, so nice. My wife said the bathrooms were not very clean though, just so you are aware.

Waiters who know how to serve kids, good meal even when we get meat in a "fish" place. Great deal with price and service. Respect and good service.
