restaurants in playa del carmen

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a really good restaurant in Playa Del Carmen that we could go to for our rehearsal dinner? We really wanted good food with a nice atmosphere. We have looked into a couple restaurants but we could use some recommendations. We will have about 23 people attending.

These are some of the restaurants we tried out during our vacation/scouting trip. They are all located on/off 5th avenue in Playa Del Carmen.


1. La Casa del Agua ($$$) - Definitely good food and the price reflects the great quality of food/service. (grupos@lacasadelagua.com.mx)

2. El Bistro at La Tortuga ($) (elbistro@hotellatortuga.com) - Great food at a very reasonable price. They have the best mojitos!!! Also, don't forget about the fruit flambee for desserts! This will be our choice for welcoming/rehearsal dinner. Friendly/Flexible service and great drinks!

3. Di Vino by the Glass Bar ($$$) - Pretty good food and they have a long rectangular table that can seat 20 - 22 people in the back of the restaurant. (info@divino.com.mx)

4. La Capricho ($$) - Flambee Mexican Cuisine (rpcaprichoza@hotmail.com)

5. Sur ($$$) - We had high expectations going in but left disappointed.

Sure thing! I like sharing information from our scouting trip back in December 2008. If I had found this site few months beforehand, I would have planned things out better to check out more places/options.


There is one more place I forgot to mention. Very good italian food a block or two away from fifth avenue and the setting is very casual. This will be a great place to go with a small group in flip flops and shorts after laying on the beach for a few hours. :)
