“Always Consistent and Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

We have owned a house in Playa Del Carmen for over 10 years and have watched many restaurants come and go....Babes has always been consistent and with Great food and atmosphere...Their Egg rolls are amazing! We have never been disappointed with any menu item..the 1/2 orders are plenty! We recommend this to all of our guests at our house, especially since its only a ten minute walk away from Playacar phase 1.

“Favorite place to eat in Playa hands down!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

If You want to change from Mexican food...look no further.... this is the place to go food ...was incredible ....hot ...plentiful ...beyond fabulous .service was so fast and so yummy. service was great ...they do not try to rip you off like every other waiter we had in other restaurants. Always added stuff you did not have. ..had to watch our bills like hawks....sad. We ate here three times waiters name was ENUT and his helper was Victor ....fabulous fabulous men...love love this place...a must try.
Best Ty food, Best apps, and believe it or not...the best margarita we had in playa.

“Unexpected great Thai food in Mexico!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

We had read some of the reviews, and were walking by Babe's just as they were opening. It was lunchtime, so we thought what the heck. Huge portions, and great Thai food! I would include this on a list of must go to restaraunts in Playa.

“WOK!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

I love the Special black pepper & garlic shrimp but I was rewarded when I ordered the Shrimp Pesto noodles (189 pesos whole plate/133 half..you can share) This is loud pesto, the way I want it- some places it's so quiet, why bother. This food is cooked in woks by the master, Enrique.
We like Victor's mango margaritas because he blends them down for us, the way we want 'em.
I like to get a bottle of wine (hey, I'm on vacation) and the bartender (Johnny? sorry, must've been the wine!) was right on top of it, putting it on ice like champagne. It was the Tantehue Cab Sav (Chile 230 pesos) or the Abruzzo (330 pesos).
It's called Babes because the bar surface is decorated with 1940s + 50s famous photographers pinup girls.
Don't be fooled, this is one of the best eats in town and the food is one of a kind with great service.

“Finally open … and fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

We tried in different occasions, but always closed. Finally open and the food and drinks were fantastic. It is not cheap, but the everything was good quality.
