Beautiful restaurant in the middle of 5th Avenue.

If you are looking for a "special" place, for a "special" dining experience, Sur Steakhouse is the place.

The service and the food were EXCELLENT! (NOTE: If you like martinis.....try a refreshing cucumber martini! My first, and will not be my last! Wonderful!)

We will DEFINITELY return on our next trip to Playa del Carmen and the Royal Haciendas!

Just returned from another week in Playa del Carmen and revisited this excellent restaurant smack in the middle of 5th Avenue, wonderful corner location for people-watching, excellent attentive service, nice soft jazz music under the shade of wide beige awnings(we always try for the same table on the side street downstairs just off the corner). Lovely place for lunch or dinner.
Food is the best part, simply outstanding! Not cheap, but you get what you pay for here. We dined twice during the week, it was so good! For dinner, have the flank steak, read the reviews suggesting it and it did not disappoint. Service is very attentive and consistent. Owner is always on top of everything making sure everyone is enjoying the open-air experience, we love this place! Beautiful plating of the food. In our opinion, this is definitely one of the nicest places on 5th Avenue, if not the nicest!

No beach view, however this restaurant is perched right on Fifth so always plenty of activity around. We sat upstairs which was quite nice. Liked the octopus and Argentian sausage appetizers. Fish was nice but nothing to write home about. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Will go back just to give it another try.

Had the caesar salad, pasta and the tenderloin. Very good. The steak, very thick, was prepared in the traditional american (or continental) style, with a minimum of spices. the flavor was very good, as this had been aged nicely. very tender and a large portion. The salad was pretty big and the dressing was excellent.

Enjoyed a nice bordeaux - the wine list is not very big, but it did have a few good selections, which I have found to be typical for the Yucatan.

for dessert, we had a chocolate ganache with ice cream. marvelous.

The staff were friendly and attentive. We felt welcome, but not overwhelmed.

Get a table overlooking the street. lots to look at.

It gets a 4, instead of a 5, because of the wine list.
