We tried La Fragata our first night in Playa del Carmen. The restaurant is in a perfect tucked away spot and has a very nice little patio. We had guacamole for an appetizer and then split the Seafood Paella for a main dish. Both dishes were good but definitely not our best during the stay. Service was also just ok. After reading the reviews though, we may have to stop by next time to try the shrimp tacos.

We found this place on TripAdvisor while we were in Playa Del Carmen because we wanted to go into town one night and eat. The reviews were great so we were determined to find it. After walking back and forth and asking taxi drivers and police (none knew what we were talking about) we finally found it. Turns out it was right where I thought it was and we walked past it twice, but the sign was folded over on the roof. Honestly, when I walked pasted I didn't want to believe it was the right place because it looked like a hole in the wall. Thank God we went back and sat down. Great place, no one else was there, the service was great. They didn't hound you like the other restaurants on 5th ave. It only seats about 10 people on an outside deck. The presentation of the food is amazing. It takes a little longer than you would expect for the food, but you will understand why when you get it. Highly recommend it, we were even going to go get a taxi back another night.

have been going to Playa each winter for the last five years. La fragata and its owner Béatrice are a must. This young lady graduated as a lawyer but prefered to follow her heart. Her creativity and passion for her cuisine is evident in the prersentation and taste of each meal. The food is always reliably good to excellent and quite frankly too well priced. Her shrimp taco to name but one meal is excellent. Her soups and salads are nourishingly fresh and second to none. If you are only up to a quality hamburger this is the place to get it.

We enjoyed La Fragata so much we went there three times in one week. The guacamole and the shrimp tacos were my favorite menu items. The service was wonderfully friendly. Appreciated the care and creativity taken with the food presentation.
