This is really the best tuna tartar I have ever ate, the place is very nice and very relax, 1 block from Fifth Avenue. We went there because some friend told us that was just renovated, and is like a small oasis in the middle of playa Del Carmen 1 block from Fifth Avenue and coco bongo.
We had tuna tartar with grapefruit..... Awesome, my boyfriend had chicken salad and was very good. For the dessert we had a panna cotta and a chocolate hot cake, that was both great. Absolutely outstanding!

What an extraordinary discovery, just off of 5th.

We were two couples looking for a nice "quiet" romantic place to celebrate a birthday and anniversary (15yrs no less). If you have ever been to Playa Del Carmen there are no shortages of restaurant choices, however we did not want loud music, televisions and "run of the mill" meal choices. After wandering for near two hours an bypassing every establishment we stumbled upon Current..... And are we glad we did!

The wait staff were attentive and present without being overbearing, the wines were served properly, our glasses were never empty and the glasses changed when we switched wines. Dishes were cleared promptly, cutlery was changed without prompting, and the table kept clean. While not quite "on-par" with the finest of dining establishments, the staff were professional, courteous, and endearing. To the staff, you ever read this, please take a minute to bask in the pride of job well done.

Now for the food, calling it food just seems wrong, what we were served is better referred to as culinary creations! The Chef consistently delivered dish after dish of meticulously prepared and presented masterpieces. Flavours and textures abound, only the highest quality ingredients prepared with a vigour and flair that only a truly passionate Chef can deliver. I can not speak highly enough of this young masters culinary acumen, he has a long and distinguished career ahead if last night was any indication.

The deserts were so elegantly prepared as to be a shame to consume them, more works of art than the masterpieces they were. After dinner drinks, liquors and gourmet coffees, never feeling rushed of pressured.

It truly was our pleasure, Thank You for turning our evening in Playa Del Carmen to an unforgettable experience. Absolutely outstanding!

My husband & I went out to try a new place while visiting Playa and this restaurant was recommended when our original plan fell through. The food was very good - we had the octopus and calamari appetizer with onions and potatoes. I ordered the au gratin chicken breast - both of these dishes were delicious! My husband was not as impressed with his spaghetti and meatballs but then he likes this particular dish a very specific way so anyone else may think it is great. We didn't have room for dessert so I can't comment on that. Our server was very attentive and anxious to make our dinner enjoyable. Overall a great experience and we will be back!

i should say that this place is the best option in downtown Playa! we always stay at La Tortuga Hotel and we are really happy that Current is here! breakfast is very rich, you have an extended selection of eggs (you should try the benedictine, the sauce is so tasty!) also a selection of artesanal italian pastries (try the strudel!) but the best is the dinner, completely different pure mediterranean style, so good we had a special beef tartar, a white tuna carpaccio, a couple of fresh pasta really taste like made to order, and finally, the PANNA COTTA! the best dessert in playa! the ambient is very cozy, a little bit too quiet but we had dinner very late so we was alone with two more table. highly reccomended!
