Today we stopped to rent chairs and to eat, we paid with 500 pesos. Four hours later, the lead guy over the rental of chairs came up to us and said we paid with a fake 500 pesos, which we had gotten from a certified...More

Definitely not the best food I've had, but for the price, it's pretty good. You could probably eat some fries or guacamole to start, chicken & salad and a drink for about 100 pesos. If you get fish probably 150 or so. It's so damn...More

Eat here on every trip. Place has been around a long time. Prices are phenomenal for a beach restaurant! The tacos de pescada are fantastic! Anybody who gives this place a bad review was obviously part of the problem and no doubt a Trump supporter!

What's not to like about a very affordable, good food restaurant on the beach in Playa del Carmen? We've been during the afternoon and in the evening, near closing time. More crowded in the afternoon with people from the beach, less crowded in the evening....More

This is where I actually relaxed fully, so I hesitate to give it a good review because I don't want it to be all packed and fancy next time. It's where the locals go, for a good reason. Beach view, you can keep your shoes...More

Although the restaurant itself looks terrible, the fish is amazing! Don't expect to have a great choice in different kinds of fish, because they only serve a few. We had the fish filets and they were amazing! Compared to all the restaurants in the area...More

The grouper with garlic and butter for 90 pesos can't be beat anywhere. Service was good, portions are huge , drinks are large and excellent, and the location is right on the beach (feet in the sand if you choose). A great value.
