This restaurant is very well taken care of, I believe the owners themselves are the ones cooking and serving as waiters. Staff is very polite.

The surrounding is not necessarily pretty however once inside the restaurant you will forget about that.

The shellfish variety is extensive not the case for fish though. They had only one type of fish and it wasn’t particularly special. If you are a shellfish kind of person go for it !!!

Again, Service is superb!

Our family of 4 was looking for a place along the way from Cancun airport to Playa del Carmen to stop for lunch. Chilpayas is just a couple blocks from the highway with easy street parking in a quiet residential neighborhood. The food was fresh and delicious. We most enjoyed the shrimp with the house sauce. The service is friendly and the owner stopped by a couple times to welcome us, offer suggestions and complementary tastes of things, and invite the kids to a little play area where they enjoyed drawing on the wall sized chalk board. We enjoyed it so much on arrival day that we stopped again on departure day.

Went this week with a family of seven ages 2 to adult. Great service and food. Coconut shrimp was every bit as good as previous reviews mentioned. Other items did not disappoint either. Even had a play area for the two year old, which was not very common site in the area.

Only issue was not even the restaurants fault. We asked them to call us a taxi and the taxi company took forever. The owners were exceptionally gracious even though I was getting quite mad at the taxi company.

Can not recommend this place enough...

We went to this local family-led restaurant for lunch and it was great. The whole family was friendly and even offered us local shots and crab soup for free. The food was great and we will definitely come back.
