The culinary concept is natural Mexican food, we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the juices are made with fresh fruit and we also have a bar with an ample assortment of premium brands. The wines we serve are mexican, thus offering and ample selection. In La Cueva del Chango we believe in the Mexican cuisine and offer a high quality product at a reasonable price.

The food at this place was very good. It was fresh Mexican food. The atmosphere was really fun. We had lunch there after a referral from a local. He did not steer us wrong. The prices were good and food was plentiful. We would go to this place again.

La Cueva del Chango is a delightful outdoor cafe and restaurant that specializes in organic foods and fresh juices. Their offerings are excellent and the indoor-outdoor design of the restaurant is both unique and charming.

We have enjoyed a number of their dishes and visited four times. Bring bug spray and be sure to order one of the specialty fresh pressed juices!

After your meal you can hit nearby Coco Beach, or Mamitas Beach, two of the area's best beaches. Don't get caught in the awful tourist beach area between Constituyentes and Calle 8 beach, you'll be missing the really beautiful beach areas of Playa del Carmen!

We had breakfast here, as it came highly recommended. Our meals were good, though nothing really stood out as remarkable. Prices are average. The coffee was excellent, and we therefore purchased a bag of ground coffee to brew in our room. The jungle-like atmosphere is nice.

Yummy! We wondered around Playa del Carmen looking for a recommended restaurant and stopped here for a drink to get our bearings and cool off. We ended up eating here--it has a stream going down the middle of the restaurant and some beautiful foliage near the entrance and the back. Very good service. The mole and empanadas were spectacular.
