Description: Mosquito Blue Restaurant and Lounge has been a trendsetter in Playa del Carmen, unequaled in quality and sophistication for both its menu and design. When it opened in 2003, the restaurant became the first in Playa to offer a chic gourmet dining experience on the popular 5th Avenue, in the heart of Playa del Carmen’s tourism district. A team of Italian chefs transforms ingredients from the Mexican Caribbean kitchen into a delicious Mediterranean Italian culinary experience. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Enjoy a superb collection of Italian wines carefully imported exclusively for Mosquito Restaurants.

Great food, excellent service and a perfect location for 'people watching' on 5th Avenue. We thoroughly enjoyed our starters and main courses, helped by some great suggestions from our waiter and an excellent wine recommendation. Definitely worth a visit.

My girlfriend and I were in Playa for our anniversary and wanted to head down 5th for some food. We are foodies to the max, and she is used to fine dining in NYC. We were blown away by this restaurant. The food was amazing - we had lobster gnocchi, salad, and an eggplant dish that was out of this world! The staff was super nice - we had Daniel who was a great waiter. You MUST go try this food. A fancy restaurant amongst a lot of low quality places.

We were told about this place by the hotel concierge at the El Taj and they were nice enough to call for us and make the reservations. When we arrived we were taken to a nice table for 2 by the outside wall, which is open air, and were seated by a very gracious host. The place is really special with the all white decor and the blue lighting. Immediately our waiter was at our table bringing us sweet warm bread and a wine list. We ordered a bottle of wine which he recommended and placed our food order. We started with appetizers and finished with dessert and would rate the entire dininig experience as 10....8.5 for the food/drinks and awesome respectable service took it to the 10 level. Well worth a visit while in Playa.

We had a fantastic dinner at this restaurant during our recent visit. We had always admired the decor and funky design of chairs, but had never eaten here on previous trips to Playa. We are glad we did! I had a blue drink, which was delicious, but I cannot remember what they called it! I've attached a photo of it. I had the shrimp tacos, which I really enjoyed. My husband chose a chicken dinner, and said it was just okay. The menu was extensive enough that he said he'd try something else next time. The service was attentive and just the right speed between courses and we did not feel rushed. Our only negative comment is that there was something at the top of our bill that we noted we had not ordered. When we asked about it, we were told it was service charge (or tip). We felt that was kind of sneaky and it should be shown clearly that there is a tip added. But it would not prevent us from going back.

We arrived in the rain but still found a dry table outside. Bread was good & the salad we split was fresh & excellent. The tuna we also split & was plenty for two. Desert was complimentary.
Excellent value.
