“Reviews Don't Lie - The Fish & Chips are HORRIBLE!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

In all seriousness, I've never had worse fish and chips in my entire life. While I usually listen to the reviews on TA, I decided to go against the grain and order the fish and chips anyway. What a huge mistake! I completely underestimated the review of someone who reviewed the fish and chips at Brochetas back in March.

I will go as far as to say that the chips portion of the meal wasn't so bad but the fish was a nightmare. Think 8-10 small balls of deep fried frozen fish on top of a heap of fries.

Not wanting to waste my meal, I forced one of these fish balls down my throat. It was then that I realized that the fish wasn't even real fish. Yuck!

If you love deep fried, batter covered balls of fish the size of a large marble that were likely found at the bottom of a freezer in Chedraui, you'd love the fish and chips at Brochetas!

“Nice option for a quick lunch”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We tried BRO chetas during our last stay at playa, chicken and shrimp were our choice and both were delicious. Try them served over brocoli instead of the french fries. The dips that are served with them are sismply wonderful.

“Awesome Food!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

The Food was very good and great value for the money. The service was good. If I had to say something I did not like I guess it would be the chairs are not very comfortable. ENJOY!!

“Something different”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

A little different cuisine in Playa del Carmen . There skewers are fairly good. No real specials. They advertise specials on there board, but they are just regular prices. The fish & chips. Blah.GREASY and over cooked. Fries were okay.
