Some quick recommendations though:
Playa Del Carmen
Babe's Noodle Bar- Casual type place with awesome asian influenced food
Alux - Restaurant inside a cave that turns into a low key bar at night. Decent food there but the cave setting is the real draw
Playa del Carmen Restaurants
Oscar Y Lalo's - Great beach front Restaurant. They filmed some of the corona commercials at the beach here
La Buena Vida - Great beach front restaurant. Very good food there
La Lunita - More delicious beach front dining. You can have a table on the beach under the moonlight if you want.
Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head. If you have any specific things you are looking for or locations, I would be glad to give some more detailed advice. My favorite places are the hole in the wall types that Gringos usually dont go to, but I know my way around the nice places also.

At the corner of 30th and Constituyentes are three great places:
Nativo (1/2 block N on 30th) - great food (good breakfasts), great smoothies but no coffee.
Cactus (1 block N on 30th) - the menu del dia for 65 pesos is wonderful. A choice between two appetizers and a main course with drink
Cocina El Paso (1/2 block S on 30th) - A real mexican hole in the wall lunch place for the adventurous. 35 pesos menu del dia (choice of three dishes with drink). Some of the best food I've had, cooked by Mom and daughter, served by the son. Open noon - 4PM.

1. My favorite... Lucy's Tacos. In the small commercial center near the beach in Akumal. The absolute best shrimp tacos, empanadas and homemade ice cream in the world. Cheap cheap cheap too. Lunch for two of us was under 10 dollars total. Its just a little tiny building with no indoor seating. Plastic tables and chairs on a patio to sit at and eat.
2. Loncheria Economica. Lunch counter in Akumal right near Lucy's. Amazing food for dirt cheap. This place is no frills also, but the food is good enough that it doesnt matter.
3. La Buena Vida. Right in Akumal also. They actually have indoor dining there also! That is something I usually avoid on vacation but thankfully they have a beautiful outdoor area as well.
If you guys have a rental car, Tulum Pueblo has what in my opinion is some of the best hole in the wall places to eat. The main drag through town has some great spots, but the side streets have some real hidden gems.
If you haven't already, consider buying the Can-Do map of the Riviera Maya and the one for Playa Del Carmen also. Those maps are worth their weight in gold. Unbiased reviews and prices of just about every restaurant and attraction down there. Karen and I found some great restaurants because of the reviews on the map.
And yes, we are foodies! Fortunately, we appreciate churros from a street cart as much as we appreciate fine dining.

And yes, Maggie, Dreams does have great food. It's actually the best food I've had at an AI. With the exception of the Brazilian restaurant at Grand Oasis. Not for the faint of heart.

I would love to get do something like the Lobster cruise in Cancun for everyone but at $70 a person, that is a bit out of our budget.
