Can't remember the name of the dish but the waiter recommended the chef's special with raw white fish and prawns (aaprox 170 pesos). Very very good. Unfortunately my other half didn't enjoy..
Went to the place because of the good reviews.
The tradicional margarita was really good too.
Also the prices are reasonable if not cheap compared to the ones on Avenida 5.
Even Dos Equis tasted better.
Dont be scared that there are plastic chairs and plates covered with film - the food is great. And there was a live band playing.

I stayed in playa del carmen for a week and found my way to this seafood restaurant everyday for lunch. I was looking for great ceviche and not only found it here, but it is cheap. I gourged myself daily on fresh fish and could barely get my bill above $20. Like the US has salsa, they have some great healthy "salsa" in ketchup type bottles. The sauces are great for chips while you wait for your mean. Get there early because they close early. Most people spoke Spanish but some English servers helped me. I would go back to playa del carmen just to eat here.

This is the most delicious place ever. i have eaten here 4 times in 4 days. We stumbled across this little place off 5th avenue and on Constituyentes street. Doesn't look like anything special with its plastic chairs, but it is great!Amazing seafood. Fresh and fast and cheap. 10000 time better than all the pricey places on 5th ave. Was so glad to find out they had a a second a restaurant on 25th ave and 35th street cause i was getting embarrassed going back so many times!! in love with the prawn and cilantro taco

This by far is our favourite restaurant in Playa del Carmen.
Los Aguachiles has created its own thing that you really should not miss it. They have a great selection of Tostadas, Tacos and Ceviche. The detail that they put in creating each order is impeccable and the price is so economical that it would be sad if you missed out. They have an English Menu and the staff is helpful.
I always get the Tuna Shashimi Tostada followed up by either 1 or two other tacos. They also provide you with 7 different sauces so you can dress any item up as you like. We had guests that visited for 5 days and ate there 3 times they loved it soo much. We frequent Los Aguachiles about once a week minimum.

I didn't dislike anything, the tacos, tostadas, aguachiles, everything is great. The fried shrimp tacos are the best, also the aguachile tostada.
