Absolutely must get away from the tourist trap drag of 5th Avenue in Playa to get to real, authentic food. Worth the brief walk from the resort areas to get this food. The waitresses are genuine and understand that not many people have tried Venezuelan food, they take their time to explain the menu thoroughly and bring you a sample of four different fruit juices. We had a tough time choosing only 2 of the juices (settled on passionfruit and one I can't pronounce much less spell). The "Venezuelan national dish" is fantastic as well as the selection of kaxapas. Very affordable and wonderful food.

Delicious food, great price, and fantastic service!

I love this place so much that I travel from Tulum where I live just to eat here. The good is fantastic, simple and made with love, and the owner is so kind, generous and genuine that he makes you feel like a guest in his home. If you are anywhere near Playa you must try this place. The juices are fantastic, and he lets you sample them all before you choose one and the arepas are unbelievably good!

We ate at Kaxapa Factory last night after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. It was everything it was supposed to be based on what we read. The service was fantastic. The food was amazing (already looking for cilantro sauce recipes) and affordable. We even talked another customer in to eat. Highly recommend it.

Been following everyone's reviews here and decided to run by there for lunch today for take out. Very nice folks and like you've read, they offered me the opportunity to try the various freshly made juices they had. All were excellent, but the passion fruit was my favorite. We tried various cachapas - which are like sweet cornbread pancakes - and they were very tasty. Add fresh avocado, black beans and plantains with chicken in the mix and it made for a meal I highly recommend folks try.

Be prepared to take a nap after...

I was staying in Cancun and decided to make a day trip to Playa. After reading reviews on Tripadvisor and knowing that I enjoy a good arapa I set out for this restaurant. It's easy to find and the owner is very sweet. The food is VERY VERY fresh. You MUST try the arapa with plantains in it. WOW!!!!
