The two of us took away trip from Tulum to Playa del Carmen. After looking up some places for good Mexican cuisine, we came across reviews for Luna Maya. Having had upscale Mexican food before (El Tabano in Tulum and Topolobampo in Chicago), we were interested in what Luna Maya had to offer. The food here was fantastic. We were seated in the outdoor balcony which was nice on a cool evening. The bread basket and amuse bouche we were given were great. We wanted the torta ahogada as an appetizer, but unfortunately they did not have this that night for some reason so our waiter recommended the chimichangas (also with pork), and this ended up being delicious. Very flavorful, and the sauce it came with was great. I ordered the smoked chili crusted tuna served medium rare. This was a large portion. The tuna was perfectly cooked and had just the right amount of spice for me. He had the duck with mole sauce. The duck could have been less cooked but it was still good, and the mole was delicious.
Since the bar above had just opened, they offered us a free drink up there after dinner which was a nice touch. Unfortunately, we couldn't stay longer than 1 drink since we had to catch our bus back to Tulum.
Luna Maya is not a cheap meal (though still cheaper than what it would be in the states), but it was definitely worth it for fine dining while on vacation. Highly recommended!
