“Tempura crab claws = wow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Had an early dinner here with my girlfriend and after it was recommended to us. The Mexican diner atmosphere was cool and the cocktails were great. The seared tuna sashimi melts in your mouth and the tempura crab claws were out of this world. Ordered three dishes and that was enough! A must go in PDC!

“IS A MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Ive been several times to Diablito CHA CHA CHA. Always great service, you need to make reservation because its very popular and in tourist season its 100% full. Excellent food all the things in the menu are delicious. Original drinks, very tasteful, good music, great atmosphere, is a must in Playa del Carmen. The location is strategic.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

All things on the menu are delicious. Awesome cocktails. Great staff. Love the ambiance and the music. Went early to avoid the crowd and the insane club right across the street. I'm 29 so I don't really care about noise usually, but that club gets ridiculous around 11PM and drowns out anything inside the restaurant.

“You´ll come again and again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have been to Diablito Cha cha cha many times around. First time was around 4 or 5 years ago, and since then it has become a favorite of locals and tourists alike. The music is great, the athmosphere is relax and feels like any beach town in mexico, with design. The waiters are really polite and agreable. The food is delicious from asian specialities to mexican dishes. The drinks are well served and really creative, the incredible hunk is great, but hard. It could become your favorite restaurant in Playa. See you there.

“Excellent drinks and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Sushi at this place is very good. I loved the tuna spicy something. The drinks are great. The atmosphere is cool and it is the same price as the rest of the places around but at least it is no a tourist trap
