Great menu. Small - about 20 people - yet lively feel. Service was amazing. Great date spot. Highly recommend.

We were absolutely delighted with our dinner at Imprevist. Being a used to fine dining in Sydney, Australia, I can say that this restaurants maintains the tradition of funky fine dining where a lot of effort is made to delight the customer. They have a very talented chef who understands the principles of modern fusion and making the most of local ingredients. You must try the mascarpone ice cream. It is to die for!

This little restaurant is situated between Maya Villa, Porto Playa and El Taj. I believe I tried every breakfast on the menu and would order any of them again. But as with the rest of the trip it was the staff and the servcie that made all the difference.

My boyfriend and I went for a quiet, romantic dinner and had an amazing experience. The appetizers we shared were beyond delicious and we even considered ordering more. Our main courses were prepared perfectly. The service was excellent and I loved the music selection. We highly recommend going here during your trip, it was definitely a highlight of ours!

We loved this restaurant! We started with the dumplings and they were okay, I would pass on these. I had the Fish Curry - it was amazing the fish was cooked perfectly with a side of curry sauce and raita yogurt. We also had the filet mignon - the best in all of playa. My son had the chicken risotto, it was cooked perfectly. My mother had a beef asian stir-fry this was very tasty! The bill was very reasonable and I would highly recommend this restaurant!
