We stayed across the street from Origenes, so everynight a group of us would head over here to drink wine and listen to the guitar players. Their wine selection was great as was the guitar players. We ate dinner there one night and really enjoyed it. Will be back next time in Playa. If you like a low key place off the touristy 5th avenue, give Origenes a try

After looking at the reviews we book at this restaurant, it is not easy to find, but believe me it is ALL worth it. You go to mexico to try the real local food and something different, playa de Carmen is full of places that you will taste the same food that we can have at home but this place is different, it is amazing. Try the ceviche that is spectacular, the service is good, they have a very good selection of wines and when the bill comes you will not find a bad surprise beacuse the price is excellent.

This restaurant is in the same condo building we stayed in so we sort of took it for granted during our stay...until we were coming home around 11:30 pm one night and were intoxicated by the music...the best we experienced anywhere in Playa. The female singer...sorry but we didn't catch her name...is top notch!

We intended to come back again just to enjoy more of the music, but our last night in Playa it rained...so we decided to venture no farther than Origenes and try their food. We loved it! The service, the quality, the presentation. the huge servings and the prices were all 5 stars. When you add the entertainment...it's a must go to place! Take the trouble to find it...it's worth the search...and be sure and tip the performers or get her autograph!
