Description: OFF THE VINE is a fantastic place to enjoy a nice glass of wine with delicious Tapas and other apetizers. You can also enjoy the live music performers that entertain customers every night from tuesday to saturday. OFF THE VINE also holds one of the largest selection of wines in Playa del Carmen in case you just want to take home a nice bottle. The theme nights are great and attract a lot of the local customers along with curious tourists that want to explore a little bit more than busy 5TH avenue. You will not regret visiting this place while in Playa.

Once we read some of the reviews we almost did not go to this great little gem. The owner was gracious, kind and made us feel at home. We ordered 4 tapas and they were some of the best we have ever had. Our bill with beer was under $24.00. The prices are extremely reasonable. It is a perfect meal when you want "lighter" fare that doesn't make you feel like you don't want to see food for a couple days. This restaurant has daily specials including ladies night where for under $15.00 she can have pasta, salad, wine and a dessert. I think everyone can have a "bad" day so I hope people reading this will give this great little restaurant a chance to provide their capabilities and excellence.

Nice spot for a glass of wine. Food is reasonably priced and the entertainment pleasant. Unfortunately they have recently changed their wine offerings and the prices are quite high. It is unfortunate that they are not offering some less expensive options.

If you are looking for a nice night out with great live music and inexpensive, delicious drinks head to Off the Vine. There is live music every night with Tuesday nights being my favorite as the singer on Tuesdays is amazing! Their drinks are unbelievably inexpensive compared to anywhere else in the area. 55 pesos for a margarita and on Mondays they have 2X1! I have tried margaritas in many places in Playa and Off the Vine is hands down the place to go if you're looking for a good one! The service is always outstanding and just a really fun night out overall.

This had been a favorite place of ours to go to every time we visited Playa Del Carmen, which is 2 or 3 times a year. We were so excited to get back but, unfortunately, this time was very disappointing. Apparently Ricardo sold the place in January this year and the new owners have a very "different approach". No longer the fun, vibrant, meeting place with exceptional staff. No longer a place that we will go. It's really a shame, really sad.

The wine selection in the store has really gone down while the prices have really gone up. No prices on anything - you have to ask. The day we stopped by, the employee was kind but had very little knowledge of wines and was of no assistance other than to look up prices in the computer.

We went back the next the evening. The food was good. The service was not. The atmosphere was terrible. The new owners sat off on their own, no interaction and seemingly no interest in us or their other customers.

Sorry to say, but this is no longer a place we recommend

Good evening ChiefExplorer, we are taking note of your comment. And would like to apoligize for the bad experience you had the last time you visited us. The prices in our wine store went up in January when the mexican tax (IVA) went up, we also noticed the prices of some wines we are selling never been changed since a few years. Results, we were selling cheaper than our own provider so, losing money on lots of our bottles. This is the only reason the prices have changed. Other than that, we kept the same staff except from 2 additions, our new manager Marie and a new employee in our wine store which is studying really hard to have a better knowledge about the wines we are selling.

I really hope you will give us another chance to prove you that we are still the place for good wines in Playa.

Sincerely, Patrick

Great atmosphere, feels like everyone knows everyone. I only had a starter and as such was tiny but it was very good (3 small croquettes).
The pizza is also good, I had a taste :-)
The waiter was very nice and even though they didn't have on the menu a strawberry margarita, they made me one.
The band that play there right next to you is so good. The singer has an amazing voice and she did a great acoustic cover for Daft Punk - Get Lucky. I wish I could hear it again :-)
