I had the surf and turf. Tenderloin as great and cooked as requested. Lobster tail was small but tasty. Next time I will be ordering the lobster separately for a bigger portion.

This was one of our favorite restuarants from the area, we went twice! Everyone enjoyed their meal and their drinks are a lot of fun. Get the blue margarita! The coconut shrimp is to die for!

In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.
