“Venezuelan Treat!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I was referred by a friend who visits Playa frequently and I wasn't disappointed. The owner and his family took great interest in having us try as well as understand everything on the menu. All the food was tasty and I ended up going there almost every day! I will be back and this restaurant will be at the top of my "must do" list! Whoever doesn't give this a 5 star rating is bonkers!

“Love this place”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Great food, excellent service. This little owner operated place is a hole in the wall a little off the beaten path on Constituyentes north of 5th but definitely worth finding.

“Really? It's just OK...”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Why is this so high in the TripAdvisor list? Ok, so I've eaten here twice and I am a resident of Playa del Carmen and have tried many other restaurants. Yes, the food is OK, but I cannot for the life of me understand why it's number #2 on TripAdvisor! For nearly 80 pesos you get a rather small portion of food, like a single taco sized item. Then the restaurant itself is tiny, off of 5th avenue, and is nothing special. The food is not Mexican, but Venezuelan. If you are looking to go off the hotel for good authentic Mexican food, try going to any of the Mexican restaurants on Calle 34 and Avenida 15... The food is fresher, the restaurants have better atmosphere, and you get really good portions for your money.

“Great food - reasonably priced”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had lunch here in early january - It is a tiny little place, just off 5th avenue. The owner and his family run the restaurant and they were great. They serve Venezuelan food, and the daughter explained everything about the menu and the items on it. They gave us sample drinks in order to help us decide what we wanted to try. Overall we had a great meal here, it was very fresh and delicious.

“Tasty & friendly”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The food was delicious (and cheap), the owner was very friendly and the juice samples were much appreciated! Simply a very nice lunch and we will surely return to Kaxapa for another meal! It's only a few blocks from 5:th avenue so easy to find as well.
