Went with another couple for dinner last week and we all had one of the best meals we ever had. Each dish better than the next. Comparable with higher end restaurants in NY or Paris or Toronto. Great food, good service and very reasonable prices. We even went back for breakfast a few days later and that was amazing.

finally decided to have breakfast here as i've passed this place numerous times. the restaurant is small and intimate but packs a punch. i sat outside and they have fans to cool you down. the muffin basket and fruit plate were unexpected but an excellent addition to start with. i think i spoiled my breakfast by diving in and consuming too much. the presentation equals the service. thanks carlos and emerson!

A quiet small restaurant not too far from the busy 5th avenue of Playa Del Carmen. My husband and I visited the area and came with with friends who live in Playa. They recommend this place as a good location to talk as it it not loud and with good food. The wait staff was very polite, spoke English and was attentive. The food was good as well. They gave us complimentary zucchini soup - Delicious. The vegetable roll appetizer and tuna tartar appetizer was also good. For main dishes we had salmon and chicken chop sui which was also delicious.

We were happy with our dining experience here and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet place to enjoy good food.

Imprevist is included with the Royal Resort all inclusive restaurants. The wine list is extensive. The lasagna was great. We sat on the street patio. Very nice experience.

So glad we did try this restaurant. We were staying at El Taj had breakfast there twice, then on our third day my daughter woke up late and will not make it to breakfast at El Taj. so we decided to go to Imprevist which is only a block away. we were greeted nice. we loved the basket of pastry with jam and plate of fruit plus yogurt and granula that my 3 1/2 yrs old daughter like a lot. so we decided to have our breakfast at this place for the rest of our stay in Playa Del Carmen. the staff are nice and always greeted us with a smile and a good customer service.
