“You have to try this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

The food, staff and atmosphere is great. We have been to the restaurant several times since it opened and we have never disappointed. Daniel (owner) and Dominque make an excellent team.

Most reviews talk about the famous poutine. It’s GREAT but the restaurant also offers many other fantastic choices – hamburger steak with fries and salad, bbq chicken (better than St-Hubert and Swiss Chalet).

Give it a try. You will not regret it.

“THE place to watch a Habs game!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

When I was planning my trip to Playa del Carmen, one of the first things I did was to look at the Habs schedule and pick a night to watch the game with my friends at Los Tabernacos.

When I visited last year, there was the NHL lockout and we only stayed for drinks. This time around, we did the whole pre-game, game & post-game experience. We ordered BUCKETS of beer all night. I love that concept: you can choose buckets of 4, 5 or 6 beers, and they're served on ice with lime. We ordered pre-game appetizers (nachos and wings). The place was pretty empty at that point and service was very fast.

Once the game started, the place filled up and the kitchen was slammed. We were told to order ahead of time because the kitchen is really small. So we ordered our poutines 1 period before we wanted them and it worked out perfectly. I had the bacon poutine and it was delicious! It's not exactly the same as a Québec poutine (the cheese is Oaxaca) but it comes damn close, and what more could you ask for in Mexico?

The atmosphere was killer! I was great to be surrounded by other Habs fans and to hear people speaking French, cheering and booing together.

The service was AMAZING. Yes, it took a while to get our food, but our waitress, Dominique, took really good care of us. She came to the table often, we never had to wait for drinks. Even though the place was crazy busy, she stopped to chat with us, sang with us at intermission. She also split the checks between all of us at the end of the evening, a very nice touch (they never do that in Mexico, even when you ask).

Thanks Dominique!!! And thanks Daniel for the tequila shots for the entire lounge when the Habs won! It was truly a night to remember :)

“A little bit of Quebec in Playa del Carmen!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

3 days after arriving in Playa del Carmen we finally found Los Tabernacos. My cousin told me I had to go there so we did, actually twice that week. The staff is awesome. The owner Daniel makes it priority to introduce himself and talk to everybody,he even pass the tequila around for everybody. The food was good at the resort but sometimes you need a bit of home while away and we found it here. We had poutine and club sandwiches. Best ones ever!! hey...we went twice now that means something. It was located like 5 minutes from Gran Porto Real resort where we were. In between the ocean and 5th avenue. You need to go there...great place especially if you want to watch hockey!!! Thank you everybody my husband and I really loved your food and your smiling energetic staff. See you next Christmas!!

“Good Food and Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stopped in with some friends for a bucket of beer and some poutine. Really enjoyed this place. Good service, reasonably priced beer and tasty poutine. Daniel the owner is a Montreal Canadians fan, so you can always take in the sports on the big screen if the habs aren't playing. Also, Daniel was very friendly, greeting all the customers and even buying everyone a couple shots of tequila. Great place for a pit stop, beer and snacks!
