My husband loves steak, but we don't go to steakhouses very often, because I don't eat steaks. Sur was a perfect choice for us, because the menu has many options for those who don't eat steak. The food was very good. Empanadas were fantastic, and I had one of the chicken dishes that I really enjoyed. And my husband said his steak was very good. Service was really friendly and efficient. It's a great location for people watching, especially from the top floor balcony, where you can look down at the crowds on 5th Av. or Calle Corazon. Deffinetly one of the places we'll return to on our next visit to Playa.

This restaurant is in the heart of Avenida Quinta, between Calle 12 Norte and Calle 14 Norte, so its a great place to "people watch." Sur is easy to find, you do not have to hunt for it. While best known as a parilla, they have quite a few fish and other menu choices as well. We found the food and the service to be quite good, seems like it should be ranked higher. The outdoor dining area is covered, so if it rains, you still will stay dry.

We live in Playa del Carmen and we've been to many "good" (rated as such) restaurants in town. Sur is the best yet. Great service, lovely, mostly at night. "Misha" the manager, a valuable asset. Grilled octupus, FANTASTIC, as good as everything else. The best Piña Colada I've ever had. Many locals and tourists there.

Just returned from our 6th visit to Cancun/Playa del Carmen and each time we have dined at Sur and each time it has been superb! The lunch special was grouper prepared three different ways; three of us had it grilled with a citrus sauce and shoestring fried leeks on mashed potatoes and our other companion had it with a chiplote sauce. All of us were blown away by the flavors! Had a lovely Spanish white wine to drink. Service was friendly and attentive, but not overdone. It is fun to sit in the courtyard under the ancient, vine-covered trees and watch the show going by on the sidewalk as you eat. This place never loses its quality or charm; recommend a trip into Playa just to eat here.

Sur Steakhouse was recommended to us several years ago. We go there each year we are visiting Playa del Carmen.
Service is attentive, diverse menu and very good quality and price.
Nice wine selection too.
