We stayed at the Hotel Aventura Mexicana and the Mayan Bistro is on the hotel property. We enjoyed the fish tacos for our first meal (lunch) during our vacation in Playa del Carmen. The fish is cooked just right, super moist and full of flavor. We went back one evening for dinner. I was disappointed that the fish tacos were... More

Everything was so great I don't know where to start! First, the food was wonderful at Mayan Bistro but the staff is what really made the difference in our stay. We got the VIP plan which was the all inclusive included in our hotel stay at the adjacent Hotel Aventura Mexicana. The manager Chris was present most of the time... More

Escape the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave and dine with us in our beautiful gardens just a block off 5th Ave on 22nd. Our service is friendly and sincere while our cuisine is an international blend that reflects the diverse culinary backgrounds and experience of our chefs. We are sure you will love our food as much as we do!! Oh yeah we also have the biggest wine pour in all of Playa!!
