Don't understand what the fus is about. This is an average place, nothing good nor bad to say. We were surprised that this place was rated number 7 in playa del Carmen, but we haven't had so many meals at playa, maybe the standard here is low...
In any case, the staff was nice.

So, so good for breakfast. Goat cheese and vegetable omelet was fantastic. French toast was delicious. Starting with fruit and pastries is so nice, but I almost wish they would not bring the pastries unless you want them since they probably have to be thrown out after you take one or two, no one could eat them all! Great service from a super friendly wait staff. Highly recommend. Great deal if staying at any of the Condo Hotel group properties (El Taj, Porto Playa, etc)

We were able to experience this little jewel of a restaurant which was across the street from our condo, Las Flores in Playa Del Carmen this past January and February.

We had the pleasure of having our first breakfast there. The food was delicious, the presentation
"Extra-ordinary". The staff was friendly and very accommodating. When my husband tipped with American money, thinking it was in pesos, I realized he had tipped a little over the top. They were happy to make a correction when I mentioned it to them. Needless to say we made sure we went back for a lunch and a dinner on our last day of stay. We were never disappointed.

We do recommend this eating establishment.

Went looking for a "new to us" restaurant in Playa Del Carmen to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Saw the name of this restaurant quoted in a review on another local restaurant where a Trip Advisor rater had mentioned it.

All of the 4 outside tables were reserved and we were excorted inside. My initial disappointment about sitting inside was immediately replaced when I saw the wonderful decor and ambiance of the inside section.

We were greeted promptly and soon ordered a very fine bottle of wine for a reasonable price. We started with the Kobe carpacio that was outstanding. The best carpacio we ever had bar none. After two delicious main courses, Mongolian Beef and Asian Noodles with shrimp we split a chocolate desert with raspberry sorbet. Absolutely everything was fantastic from start to finish, including the service.

Please don't tell anybody about this "hidden gem".

We found this restaurant this first morning of our 3 day stay in Playa Del Carman (we were hotel hopping for our honeymoon). The restaurant is amazing we ate there 2 out of 3 breakfasts and wish we could have experienced it more.

We sat outside both times. Such a cute area with nice view of the quiet street. The waiters were amazing! The food just as amazing! A wonderful eating experience...first served a variety of baked goodies with two flavours of jam, a plate of fresh fruit, fresh yogurt with honey and granola on the side, then finally your ordered breakfast! I definitely recommend the Eggs Benedict.

We will go back the next time we are in Playa!
