We stayed in Playa Del Carmen in June/July 2014 and visited The Glass Bar. It stands out from the rest of the restaurants along the strip as each table is lit by candlelight and it looks quite modern. We were dying for some good Italian food and wine and the menu looked good.

Upon being seated we were given complimentary breads and oils and a small glass of very good quality wine. We ordered our food (we both had Italian food as opposed to the steak and seafood they also offer) and we were quickly served a complimentary amuse bouche. It was delicious. The breads were also exchanged for a fresh new plate when they started to run low. Our main meals were of a very good standard and the service throughout was impeccable. The wine was also very good. At the end of our meal we were further given a plate of complimentary biscuits/mini meringues which rounded our meal off perfectly.

We would definitely recommend this place to everyone. We wished we would have visited earlier in our stay as we would have returned!

On vacation in a resort, we decided to venture out As food snobs, we were tired of the mediocre food at the resort. We walked 5th avenue and saw the glass bar. Nice open restaurant right on the corner. Looked good, we thought. Boy were we wrong! The place wasn't good, it was INCREDIBLE. from the moment we sat down, to the time our bill was brought, we were highly impressed. The salmon croquette, aged cheese plate, "cowboy" ribeye, pastas, and desserts were TOP NOTCH! This is a place I would not only recommend, but no doubt would visit again. For the quality of service and the amount and taste of the food, the price was perfect! It was the highlight of our food intake the whole week in playa! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to be pampered!

The Glass Bar is an excellent restaurant in Playa! The servers are very attentive and immediately make you feel welcome! My favorite Strawberry Martini is the best anywhere and my husband loves the extensive wine selection. From ordering salads and fish to pastas and steaks we have never been disappointed. The restaurant has a great vibe and on a popular corner. It's busy even in slow season but service does not lack! David is one special waiter and remembers year to year when we visit our favorite drinks. We always celebrate special occassions here and look forward to return trips!
