Who knew such a scrumptious place would be in a town like Playa Del Carmen? The food is honest, fresh and delicious. Some reviewers have complained about small portion sizes. They must’ve eaten at a different restaurant. The papaya salad was enormous, more than enough for two to share. The pad Thai was great, and the salmon the best I’ve had recently, anywhere. Dessert was delicious, the margaritas strong, and the service exemplary. Bravo.

Hi there ChinaFanNYC,

I just wanted to say a thank you for taking the time to leave us such wonderful feedback following your recent culinary experience at Imprevist Resto & Wine!

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed every single aspect of our generous evening meal.

Each dish on our International and Asian Fusion menu has been carefully created with only the very finest ingreedients, so it's amazing to hear you noticed that quality in your papaya salad and pad Thai.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Imprevist Resto & Wine again soon.

Warmest Regards,

This place had really delightful breakfast/brunch. We were really enchanted with the dishes, and the ambiance. Our dishes were photogenic — and delicious!

We were also really dazzled by the dinner! The outdoor seating has a relaxed and charming vibe, on a street that is near the action but not too busy. The dishes that we had were incredible! Beautifully prepared, and we found ourselves making "wow" faces while we dined.

Easily one of our most favorite places in Playa.

Tiny place, cute and servers are friendly, I just think it is overpriced for what you get at Chez Celine I get more food and homemade bread, food is fine it is just a bit pricey for the overall taste, I never mind paying high price for food as long as it is good.

Had dinner here one night. Food was very good but not excellent. Service was also very good but not outstanding. Portions were as expected but not generous. Overall it is a nice restaurant but nothing spectacular.
