The family and I had a very nice Christmas dinner at Imprevist. Some of the food was exceptional, other things were very good. Overall, a very pleasant dinner with excellent staff! Will be going again.

This small restaurant offers fresh innovative gourmet cuisine at a very reasonable price. It was so good, we had two meals in two days. Elisa, our server, welcomed us, Her gracious hospitality, efficiency and warm smile were as outstanding as the food. This is a world-class restaurant.

This is an upscale and sophisticated restaurant without upscale pricing. The food and service were excellent and it is located in a quieter part of Playa. Defintely recommend this restaurant.

My partner, Bart and I, found Imprevist to be the best restaurant to dine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner during our stay in Playa del Carmen. The service was exquisitely perfect, the food exceptional, and the atmosphere romantic.

Aliza is the most graciously accomodating hostess; taking care of every need. She eagerly ensured Bart and I were comfortably taken care of. Aliza is friendly and truly cares about her work. It is rare to find someone of such character as hers.

We were fortunate to experience Imprevist through our stay at Acanto.

The menu at Imprevist is impressively unique and tastefully gourmet. The prices are very inexpensive and, most certainly worth the money.

The breakfast menu is simply amazing, with your choice of anything from pancakes to Eggs Benedict. The service is superior to any other resaurant in the area.

The location of Imprevist is perfectly located away from the well-beaten path of tourists; along a beautifully shaded side street with very little pedestrian or vehicle traffic.

Imprevist is the perfiect romantic dining escape, away from the hustle and bustle of the world. This restaurant is elegantly pleasing to the eye and most definitely worth a try.

Kudos to Imprevist and its staff for an awesome dining experience.

For Playa I guess it's good, but my no means is it great. The menu is some what sophisticated, but unfortunately it doesn't really hit the mark. My wife actually really disliked it but I am being fair about it, and saying that its just average. In this town I think the menu works, its more about the execution of the dishes that need work. That being said the space and the service was good. This place can work they just need to work on it.
