We went here because they have nightly entertainment -- heard a great guitar duo. Food was disappointing, but partially our fault for ordering the wrong thing. We ordered baby lobster grilled and thought we were ordering grilled shrimp. It was the special of the night. It was grilled whole and we had to dig it out. Ask if your shrimp... More

Four adults and two children ate here at 5 P.M. on a Saturday. There were very few patrons at this time. We were given no chips or salsa before the meal (wasn't made that day). Our food took an hour to arrive which is intolerable with children. Our waiter was very apologetic but said the chef was very busy. Food... More

Good local food and Entertainment. A bit noisy at sunset as birds tend to swak till sunset. Would definitely go back.

Galeta and her crew still get the job done with passion and care. Best entertainment in town. We would never miss a trip without a visit and to indulge in the best pies in PA.

In my opinion my friend was too kind with her review. Not only did we not get any service, we were treated like unwelcome guests. I have never been treated so poorly anywhere!! The other customers were also extremely rude by inviting people to their table in front of us and standing up blocking our view like we were invisible... More

Eight of my friends and I rented transportation from Playa Del Carmen too see the Elvis impersonator at Cafe Ole. The show was fantastic! The service was non existent. We were under the impression that we had a reservation and the restaurants policy is no reservations or separate bills . We were no aware of the policy! We put that... More

Café Ole is a secret Mexican jewel! The staff are great and enjoy explaining the ins-and-outs of the Menu. Staff are knowledgeable and enjoy ascertaining that we understand the menu! No short cuts here when it comes to customer service. The Baby Back Ribs are one of the most enjoyable I have had in years. Gaylita’s pies are super. If... More

Have not been in in 16 years but even though the place has expanded, it was fantastic, as always! I had the grouper which was delicious and my husband had chicken nachos. We arrived during "happy hour" and enjoyed 2 for 1 drinks. What a perk! Amazing place with great memories.

What a wonderful experience!! Had the coconut shrimp with Gaylita's apple peach pie for dessert. Enjoyed the whole evening listening to some acoustic classic rock. Do yourself a favor and try it. Also reasonably priced.

Thank heftocat

Cafe Ole has been in business for over 20 years. Gaylita has made this restaurant one of the finest in the Riviera Maya. Enjoy great food, fun and satisfaction. We have a friendly staff, good service and varied menu - fresh seafood, steaks, pasta, Mexican specialties, burgers, soups, salads, sandwiches and wraps. Check out our heavenly pies, cakes and other and desserts. We have something for everyone. A full bar and wine list are available. Cafe Ole is famous for Baby Back Ribs--Kansas City Style. Our customers rave about Gaylita's pies and cakes. Order by the slice for dessert OR call a day ahead to order entire pie or cake. If it's for a birthday, Gaylita can personalize it. Just ask! We have live music and karaoke several nights a week. We want you to have an awesome experience with us and make you feel at home. Come enjoy some pie and get your picture taken with Gaylita. Hope to see you soon! As for your reviews, we take them very seriously and appreciate them greatly! We know it takes quite some time to write them.
