Reviewed August 11, 2014

This restaurant is part of The Royal Playa Del Carmen resort. Nice atmosphere with outdoor seating near the beach. Varied menu, portions are small but you can order more since it is an all-inclusive resort. Service is good. The calamari was very good....entrees were unique but nothing special in terms of quality.

After eating at Pelicanos for breakfast, we ate there almost everyday. The food and service was great and we loved sitting on the outdoor covered patio with the ocean view.

Food was alright, not exceptional like the other restaurants. Service could have been a bit better. There was a breeze coming in off the water and we felt like we might have been blown a bit.

Best ambiance at the Royal. There is nothing better than eating outside next to the ocean! Nice ocean breeze during the day so not too hot for lunch and very pleasant at night. Good selection of food to suit everyone and tapas restaurant next door under the same roof that is also very good. Long pants are not required at night so you can go casual.

The food here was delicious! The service was unfortunately probably the slowest at any of the restaurants at The Royal. Lunch time service was a little quicker than dinner time. We took at large group there one night (20-25ppl) and it was painfully slow getting our drinks and placing our orders. Might have helped if we gave more than 12 hour notice so they could staff up?
