If Jurgen's not there, the lady's behind the bar are there to greet you as well and are terrific people (Ale & Ingrid), always making you laugh.

Description
MOM'S BAR & RESTAURANT is a place for the local Ex Pats living permanent in Playa del Carmen and steady repeat customers from North America and Europe who spend the winter here. Tourists are welcome. We are running a small operation with MOM'S Classics and add a few specials every week to keep it interesting. Most dinner specials run for 95 Pesos. We are open Monday to Friday from 4:00 pm till 11:00 pm. Our prices are moderate, the food is excellent, the drinks are strong and the service is personal.
