Wow, what a place Bea and Karl are running here in Playa del Carmen. I would really recommend it to everyone who have not yet experienced Swedish hospitality. At its best.....

“Easy Choice”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

The only thing I can fault with this restaurant is the often wait to get in, but it moves quickly, there is a lot of seating and the service is great.

Hi 60LOLO! Thank you for choosing Guilty Monkey and for taking the time to write a review. We are a small place and we prepare everything from scratch, which is why it sometimes takes a bit longer than your average restaurant. I'm very glad to see that you thought it was worth your wait. Once again thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon again!

“For tasty breakfast look no further!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Every single detail in Guilty Monkey is worth mentioning, from the outside sign that reads "Unattended children will be given an espresso shot and a free puppy", the pretty, friendly faces you meet in the inside, the super cute shopping cart they made into a flower pot, to the incredibly tasty, beautifully presented dishes! I can honestly say: I had the best tasting and most exquisite pancakes I had ever tasted!

This place is a must while your stay in Playa, you're definitely not gonna regret the visit and maybe even make a couple friends!
