My husband and I go to Playa del Carmen each year and we have fallen in love with the food from the Imprevist from our first visit.

The food is amazing for breakfast and dinner! I have never been disappointed with any of the dishes I ordered on the menu. What I also appreciate is that the quality and taste is consistent over time - you know that everything will taste like it did the last time you went. This contrasts with some other restaurants in the area where one time is good and next is terrible.

The service at the Imprevist is also excellent! :) Andres (among others) is a great waiter!

First of all, I'm an Italian that knows how to eat properly (not so obvious unfortunately!).

This place has everything you may look for: kind waiter, good cocktails, amazing plates (my risotto was super!) and tasty desserts too (which is rare).

I don't like talking about prices, but since I read somebody complaining about it... let's say that if you think that 1200 pesos (less than 60 euros) for cocktail + appetizer (offered by the house) + 1 starter + 2 main courses + 1 dessert is too much.. Well, I think McDonald's is the answer for you ;)

The photos talk itself.

So trust me and spend an evening here.

We tried Imprevist because it was included as a choice with the breakfast that was provided by our hotel. It quickly became our favorite option for breakfast and brunch (which was lunch a few times.) The kids loved the breakfast with the fruit and the pastry basket. We also enjoyed many things from the brunch menu. We all loved the zucchini soup so much that we asked for the recipe on our last visit.
