“BEST SHRIMP TACOS EVEER”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I can't express how much I love this tacos. Whenever I come to Playa I go whenever I have the chance. I don't know how they do it, but their shrimp tacos are TO DIE FOR, they just taste so good... and I don't really like seafood that much, so for me it was really surprising the first time that I ate here.
Everyone should taste this tacos when in Playa, they're really worth it.

“Brilliant fish tacos”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

I love La Floresta for its authentic Mexican fish tacos. I have been coming back on many occasions during my last stays in Mexico. The place is rustic, not at all fancy, next to the main route through the city. It is very popular with locals, everyone I have asked, considers it the best. I am always looking forward to coming back for more.

“This is the most traditional place in Playa del Carmen”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is a great classic for lunch. They have a small selection of tacos and ceviches, but everything is well cook. Also they have a tomatoe salad that you can add to your tacos. And if you are hungry, believe me, this is a place to get a fast and great service!

“Shrimp tacos and beer!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is a no frills restaurant where the food demands attention, not the fancy surroundings. Just off the main highway through Playa del Carmen, you'll sit at a plastic table and a waiter will bring you fresh battered shrimp tacos and drinks in minutes. They do other food, but the shrimp tacos are what they're known for. We live in Playa and eat here whenever we get a chance.
