La Parrilla is one of our 'must' stops while we are in Playa. The lobster taco's are divine and I order two plates of them when there! Drinks are fabulous and everything on the menu is true authentic mouth watering sensational Mexican food. You can't pass this experience up when in Playa. Save the big chain name restaurants for other trips and dine at La Parrilla instead. Oh and don't be shocked when you get the bill, for what you eat and drink it should be double . . . very well priced establishment.

Been coming to Playa for the last 8 years and come here every time I visit. Usually the food is very, very good. Not so this time. My entire party was disappointed in the quality of food and the service. perhaps it was because we didn't want the pictures with the sombrero (to be framed) or the group picture (for the label on the bottle of tequila), or the numerous bands to play for us. Could have also been that the were busy with two groups of 20+. Regardless, food was average and service was inattentive (and even got our order wrong but took so long we didn't try to correct). We'll go back next year and hopefully it'll return to the way it always was. otherwise we'll go down the street to a similar sounding place.

While walking the streets of Playa looking for authetic Mexican food we found La Parrilla. We were taken to the second floor and seated at a table overlooking the street. Our meal began with Guacamole (the best we had in Playa) followed by grilled shrimp, chicken and beef. We ended the meal with Flan. Excellent!. While in Playa I would recommend a visit to this restaurant.

Great ambiance ... excellent food and service.
A little on the expensive side compared to other restaurants, but definitely worth it !
A must in Playa !

Many visitors to PLaya del Carmen are comfortable with the standard offerings. My husband and I prefer to branch out and truly experience the area we are in, including the food. One of the thins we love about La Parilla is the selection of genuine mexican dishes (the ones most tourists don't venture to try). Our experience has been that the food is delicious, the wait staff and owners are truly friendly, and the location is fabulous.
