“fabuloso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We just ate there based on TripAdvisor reviews. No exaggeration - the food was excellent, the prices below reasonable and the owner (?) very polite and friendly. A place that feeds your body and your soul. If you want fancy, this is not the place for you. It has a few tables, extremely clean, and opens on to the street.

“First rate ceviche, gotta try it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Just ran across this place today looking for some of the other places listed in Tripadvisor. Lucky me. Great little place on a side street. 3, maybe 4, tables. Verracruz style seafood, ceviche, cocktails, empanadas, etc. Superb fish ceviche, prepared 3 ways, i had two. One with carrots, the other with cucmbers and pico de gallo. I ordered the medium and not the large. A whole 70 pesos, and filled me up. I ordered an empanada and had to take it back to the Grand Luxxe. Great young owner, chef. Simple, but super clean and tasteful timy eatery. Lots of shrimp, calamari, and other items in the cocktails and other items. Got to go back and try them all. Oh, and a nice refreshing horchata made on premise. Go check this guy out.

“An amazing find - everyone should visit this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This little eatery will give you a true taste of Mexico. The presentation of the food is wonderful and the combination of ingredients makes for a tasty delight. The empanadas are made fresh and to order - the crab and shrimp empanada was out of this world. The owner is friendly and takes great pride in his food. This will be my first stop next time I am in Playa del Carmen.
