I have eaten at El Diez four years in a row. Even though I stay at an all inclusive, having dinner at El Diez is a MUST! My favorite in the arachara (sp?) with chimichurri.

My reviews for El Diez can get a bit boring because it's the same all the time...we go every year while in Playa...sometimes more than once...to get our steak fix! The Entrana is absolutely the best steak and always cooked to perfection. I love the chimichurri and the salad dressing and wish they would bottle it...I would buy a case... More

One of the best spaghetti's with clams that I have tried ever. Service was good and the price it was ok for the size of the plates. Desserts were a bit pricy though.

I've only eaten their meats and salads ans eggplant. The two best cuts are the Vacio (medium rare only) and the entraña (order this one medium) - this cut is like the belly of the arrachera. Both are amazing! Their eggplant appetizer is perfect! I'm told by friends the empanadas are great, I'm gluten-free, so couldn't try them. I had... More

We all ordered flank steak arrecharra. Mine was a bit overdone, medium when I had asked for medium rare. The others were good. The little sides were delicious. A bit pricey but I guess you pay for location.

The restaurant was recommended by the staff at the hotel we were staying at. We checked the details on Trip Advisor and saw that there were mixed reviews regarding the quality of food and level of service. Between us we had steak, burgers and wine. the restaurant is in a good location directly on 5th Avenue. Staff spoke English and... More

We had dinner with family and friends, asked for the "asado de tira" and "corte argentino" the corte was awesome, but where they really got me, was when I asked my asado de tira cooked 5/8, which is rare in some restaurants. Guess what? Cooked with perfection, a most go place! Congrats to the chef!

Good spot for families. Kids enjoyed the pasta and pizza dishes while mom and dad had a good steak. Value is decent for Avenue 5 and service is good but mostly Spanish speaking waiters, so brush up to get your order exact.

This place is a mixture of Italian and other fare. We had lasagna and salmon. Lasagna here is more on the Parmesan and Romano cheese taste with light sauce and heavier homemade noodles. It was a little too much on the Romano cheese taste for me but palatable. My husband had the salmon and said it compared to other that... More

El Diez was recommended to me by a local. She was supposed to join me for dinner, but due to unforeseen reasons, I had to have dinner alone. I was greeted promptly and seated immediately. The tuna carpaccio is delicious and very plentiful, and the NY steak was delicious, with a lettuce, tomato & onion salad dressed with a mustard... More
