Amazing place! Great service, best tapas, 1/2 portions also. Please go, you will not regret. The waiters are really good to introduce the food and tell you about the right wine choice also. We enjoyed it every evening we went.

We stumbled upon El Tapas during a morning walk on our final day in PDC over Christmas 2016. Husband and I both love paella, and we briefly chatted with the owner. As we walked away we realized our dinner plans were just made without even trying. It was us and our two kids (12yo/10yo), who are pretty happy eating seafood.... More

I like going a bit away from main strips in cities. El Tapas was fantastic. I went with my mom for Christmas dinner and loved our meal (enough to come back again!) Paella always takes a while when you order, the seafood for two was amazing! The house salad, Pan con tomate and wine were great. House white for $50... More

We ate outside and tasted many plates of delicious Tapas - we loved the seafood paella and the shrimp scampi. They had very good wine and someone was singing and playing guitar outside. It was very enjoyable. It's downtown Playa which was not on fifth avenue and about 25 minutes from where we stayed. Great night!

It has been 2 years since we had last been at this resto...and none of us can figure out why?!? It is absolutely one of the best dining experiences in Playa! I called for a reservation this afternoon for 4 of us. I pre-ordered the mixed Seafood Paella (for 3 ppl). Within 5 minutes of our arrival the piping hot... More

Paella is the specialty at this lovely spanish restaurant wih a good selection of tapas. Everything that came out of the kitchen smelled fantastic. Fresh food wonderfully prepared with very friendly and attentive service. Beautiful guitar music most nights 830-1030. Great deserts and after dinner drinks too. Try the truffles.

I was yearning for some good Paella and was told about this place. It was worth the walk from 5th Avenue in Playa Del Carmen to this locale as the seafood paella was so delicious, I almost cried. I came as a single and the Paella is served for two. So, I ordered the two portion, ate some of it... More
