Description: MOM'S BAR & RESTAURANT is a place for the local Ex Pats living permanent in Playa del Carmen and steady repeat customers from North America and Europe who spend the winter here. Tourists are welcome. We are running a small operation with MOM'S Classics and add a few specials every week to keep it interesting. Most dinner specials run for 95 Pesos. We are open Monday to Friday from 4:00 pm till 11:00 pm. Our prices are moderate, the food is excellent, the drinks are strong and the service is personal.

Located far from 5th ave. on 30th Moms is a great place to go when Mexican food gets a little tired. Home cooked meals that are a real value, and a la carte menu so you can get exactly what you want. The chile con carne and ribs are great. Some really nice salads too especially the Greek.

I think the reviews on here are skewed by the fact that the praise and positive comments are coming from people that just like to hang out there with each other. The food is horrible. It tastes like it has been in the refrigerator for a week and then heated in the microwave.

Hands down the best chicken cordon bleu I've ever had. It's been 10 months since we were there & I can't wait to be back in town next month. Kind of a locals retreat for people who have transplanted to PDC. So so yummy & super affordable!

This is absolutely the best place to eat in Playa. Monday to Friday open for dinner and drinks. The steaks are great and everything on the menu is cooked and served to perfection. The value is outstanding, the drinks are strong and the beer is cold.

When you looking for great food and cheap drinks, Moms is the bar to goto. Jergen, the owner, and Tanya, the bartender always ensure you have a great time, even if they tend to overserve you. The food is awesome, my favorite is the Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork Chop, but everything else I have tried is great also. I go often and will go often in the future.
