This authentic Mexican seafood restaurant is off the beaten path (5th Ave) by several blocks but worth the walk! Our concierge recommended it or we would not have chosen this restaurant from among the hundreds that are available in Playa del Carmen but we are very glad we did. The atmosphere is simple but welcoming in an open Palapas style... More

We have an interesting challenge in finding eating places that do a good job of offering selections for both my wife (vegetarian) and me (basically anything else. This little seafood restaurant is just across from the popular Mega supermarket. Both of us really enjoyed the food and helpful service when we stopped. When I asked about the catch of the... More

We had the fresh fish (sea bass) suggested by the owner and chef. They had several preparations - can't recall which one we had, but it was excellent! Fast, super friendly service.

Playa is our home away from home. If we don't want tacos and mom isn't cooking, we head to Pesca! Popular place for the snowbirds, permanent residents and anyone wanting to stay away from 5th!

We ate some soft tacos, it came with guacamole and some sauces. The beef and vegetables were good. Our waiter Carlos was very nice to us!

We came here as we had heard some good things about this restaurant. The seafood is mostly fresh (thus not frozen). In fact, the waiters will tell you if a certain fish filet is sourced frozen. This is good practice. We selected shrimp cocktail as a starter. It was very good, but not exceptional. As a main course, we selected... More

We had a birthday celabration here with 11 guest. Steak and Lobster, Fresh fillet of local fish, Giant prawns, salads, drinks, service, all good. Ask about the catch of the day. Right across from Mega on 30th. Away from the crowds on 5th. A pleasent surprize!

Not crowded, get the whole fish...incredible. Off the busy streets of 5th avenue in Playa Del Carmen, you would never stumble upon it.

We were directed towards this place by a Canadian woman who has been living in Playa for the past 10 years. Her description was spot on- amazing steak and lobster tails brought out on a skillet that's still sizzling! This included veggies and a baked potato and everything was perfectly cooked. We also had sangria and a mojito for drinks.... More

Went here after reading all the raves, but disappointed overall. I will say that nothing we ate was bad, but nothing was great either. We had the 660 peso seafood special that was 4 shrimp, some squid rings, diced octopus tentacles, and fish. Also had a smallish lobster tail with drawn butter and a couple beers. The dinner, with tip,... More
