We enjoyed an excellent meat at Imprevist, which I gather is a relatively new restaurant away from the noise of 5th Avenue. Our Italian waitress was friendly and efficient. The food was good, not expensive, and well presented. Recommended.

Friends made reservations for my birthday in April,the six of us had an amazing evening, everyone so thoroughly enjoyed all that was ordered. I had a steak, it just melted in my mouth, in fact writing this review is making my mouth water. Dessert was again nothing short of superb. Cannot wait to share this place with others upon my return to Playa del Carmen.

This place was a great find . It was just down the street from our hotel across the street from the El Taj. Mojitos were really good and I had steam fish with a curry sauce that was outstanding.

We were at this place for breakfast almost every day of our stay, for 2 reasons. Our kids loved their food and El Taj (where we were staying) provided the breakfast coupons with the room. Really a small place but Breakfast was delicious, all the pastries, fruit , yogurt etc. I didn't like their Waffles, too crisp, every time we ordered. All the other items were great. We even went for lunch one day, which was also a great meal and good value.

Since we frequented this place for breakfast a lot, didn't bother going for dinner.

The first sight says all: it's ellegant, with good atmosphere and modern. The service is very good and the food delicious. The chef himself talked to us and we had the opportunity to share our impressions. Everytime we have the opportunity to go back to Playa del Carmen, for sure we will go there to have a nice dinner.
