This place is serving authentic Mexican food. At the time we were ther it was full and I think we were the only tourists there. We ate lunch here starting with the shrimp cocktail and then the fish tacos. The prices are reasonable and the location only a five minute walk from our hotel on Calle 40 between 5th and 10th.

Where do I begin? The service was flawless, the food incredibly delicious and very creatively presented. You must ask to see their list of Especialidades then pick any of them - you will love it. Everything is fresh and prepared with knowledge and passion.
It is not cheap by Mexico standards but a fabulous plate with generous portions will run you around 140 pesos or $10 Canadian dollars. Just to put things into perspective - a meal of the same caliber in Canada would run you over $35.
Just walk down the Quinta, a few streets after Calle 38, turn left and discover a slice of Mexico...

Actually found this restaurant while searching for the place just a few doors away. It is located on Calle 40 between 5th and 10th. Tel 984-873-1929. It is a little out of the way but well worth the trip. This is one of the best restaurants that we visited in Playa. Food, Service and Price were all excellent. Very, very clean! The folks that ran it were super nice. Do not miss this restaurant. All the previous reviews are correct. It should be in the Top Ten!! See photos for menu and prices. Enjoy!

We were also given this recommendation from Hector at The Scuba Tribe and we were so impressed we ate here twice in one week! The wait staff was fabulous, the owner came to our table and greeted us and the food was AMAZING!!

We were referred here by Hector(Scuba Tribe). Wife and I have been in PDC for a week and this was the best. Food was great and very filling and priced right. Service was great. I had coconut shrimp and wife had lobster. Watch the video before ordering. They have some of their plates on there.
For dessert we had flan and strawberry with Baileys.

It's off the beaten 5th a block and farther north, but safe area.
