A good location for people watching, with tables overlooking the evening passagiata on Quinta Avenida. Best evening meal of the 10 nights we had in Playa .

Our server recommended the garlic octopus which was one of the best octopus dishes I've had. We also had a citrus salad which was filled with fresh fruit and was very refreshing. Since we were sharing the main we decided to also get a side of buttered pasta. All the food was excellent and accentuated by small touches such as a delicious Parmesan "chip" with the pasta. We both left quite full although the octopus main itself was not that much food. Bill came to about 600 pesos including water, a cocktail and tip. Expensive for Mexico but given the nice location overlooking the pedestrian walk, relaxing ambiance and friendly service it was a very nice treat.

On October 28th we were in Playa del Carmen with another couple and my sister. We decided to go to Madre Tierra. My husband and I had been there in February and really enjoyed it so we wanted to share with our guests. Cynthia made the best guacamole,, table side. Excellent with everyone loving it!! She then made a Cesar salad, also table side, which today is pretty rare. It was absolutely awesome. She left the bowl for us to dip our bread in and we were in Heaven. All of the entrees were very good. We enjoyed the surf and turf, the tequila shrimp and the chicken with mushrooms. All prepared very well and delicious. The staff were all very nice, attentive
and courteous. We travel to the Grand Mayan in Riviera Maya at least once a year. Many times we don't even leave the property, but we will visit Madre Tierra at least once every time we get back.

We travel to the Playa del Carmen/Riviera Maya area 2-3 times a year and we ALWAYS eat at Madre Tierra. We have been enjoying this place for quite a few years now....the waiters recognize us when we come--the wait staff is wonderful. The food is fantastic...great steaks (try the filet mignon!) and sea food. We actually take extra business cards from the restaurant and hand them out at our hotel and even on the shuttle from the airport. You can't go wrong with this place! HIGHLY recommend it.
