“Finest dining experience on 5 Ave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Located in the corner of 5 ave and 30th street, my family and friends had a fantastic dining experience this is the 4th time we eat at El Muelle. We had the seafood pasta, two different types of ceviche, fish caserole and all they serve is absolutely fresh, great wine selection, the servers provide by far the best service. We had two types of desserts with ice cream, a real eating experience.

“Great seafood and beautiful dining area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

I get to be the first reviewer, how exciting, being a first on Tripadvisor is a first for me! We checked this place out on Saturday and it was gorgeous, so bright and airy, the food was fresh and expertly prepared, and the staff were all lovely.

It's new here in Playa del Carmen and the chef is from Montreal with restaurant experiences in Cuba and Panama, and there is a great Caribbean feel to the decor and of course, the food.

Try the ceviches, which come in three styles, we had the Thai style with coconut milk - it was quite divine. Fresh catch of the day, we had lobster and homemade pasta.

I recommend the house Pinot Grigio with your fish or seafood as it pairs wonderfully, a nice wine, not like the normal low quality house wines here, fresh and crisp.
