First visited when they opened and have been a regular stop for us since.
This visit was as good as the first and I still consider it one of the best value steak dinners in Playa. Their pasta and burgers are great too, along with well priced wine and beer. Definitely recommend - keep up the terrific service Josie and Mauricio!!

After four years of living full time in Playa, I’ve finally found a great steak house. We’ve dinned many times at Harry’s, Sur, Plank just to name a few and never had a better, more flavorful and tender steak. Wish we had found it sooner because the price was much better than the competition at $280 pesos per. The petite roasted veggies were moist and full of flavor, no sides required. Really good cappuccino and chocolate mousse with berries topped it off. The quiet atmosphere was so welcomed in a town were playing loud music in a dinning area is the norm. We were serenaded tableside by acoustic guitar and violin and could actually have a conversation. The service was professional and excellent. The only flaw was a dry gin martini that had absolutely no flavor of gin, where’s the gin? I had a nice chat with the chef and she explained why her steaks were so amazing, her source and she never uses frozen meat. Whatever she’s doing, I hope she keeps it up. I’ll be back soon.

We again went to 500 Gramos for the good steak. In fact we where there for two months and went to 500 Gramos 4 times. Very good steak (Fillet Mignon) and nice fresh vegetables and baby potatoes on the side. Josee and Mauy are great hosts. We use to be able to just go there when we wanted to but now you really need to make a reservation.

We wanted to have lunch but on a budget, we had checked out several spots but the prices scared us, until we stumbled onto this gem. Its a bit hard to find, we literally walked passed it. We all had Sirloin, the only steak available at the time, which was fine. the staff was attentive, the drinks were great, the food was good. i give it a 4/5.

Simply a great place for beef. We tried the ribeye and T-bone, were very happy with both. 500 Gramos Grill had suitible, and affordable, choices of wine for the menu, we had both hispanic and italian without emptying our pockets. If you want to take a break from tacos and have a steak; this is the place to be!

Big thanks Alberto and the crew for great service!
