I eat at Madre Tierra every time I go to playa and it never disappoints! If it's your first time to playa, eat at Madre Tierra's first and sit at the balcony to do some people watching and enjoy the great food! Service was great and helpful! Seafood is always delicious!

This is a strange one. Everything seems great and this place got high reviews. We ordered the fish fillet and it was terrible, full of oil and bland. It was not worth the money. When we did not tip, the waiter tried to convince us that we didn't pay the correct price.

So far the only meal that has beat this one is Passions in the Paridisus resort which was expensive but amazing. Madre Tierra is a great value for an awesome meal with great service. The server was so accommodating nd made a huge effort to help us with wine even though he struggled with english. He had a great sense of humour and was attentive without being overbearing. My steak was a bit underdone and he got it fixed up very quickly. My husband had lobster and it was cooked to perfection. The chimmichura sauce served with the filet minion was really great. Would definitely go back! We enjoyed this very much!

Excellent service and very good food. The restaurant is pretty and very clean. Try to get a table that overlooks the street scene. This is a fun view of the action of 5th Avenue.

We discovered this gem 2 years ago on our honeymoon and were not disappointed on our return visit. The food is delicious (get the Caesar salad made table-side and try the ceviche) and the staff are friendly and accommodating. The view alone is worth the price. This is a great place to enjoy everything 5th Ave has to offer without actually having to be in the middle of it.
