“Lovely experience at La Taberna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

Excellent value for money. Coconut shrimp to die for! The service was prompt and very friendly, and the food plentiful and delicious. Lots of roomy tables. You can't go wrong here.

“Great place to kick back, have a drink, check your emails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

We go here a lot to check emails, have a drink, and have at least 1-2 dinners/lunch there, as the food is really good and modesty priced. Potato Skins are excellente !!

English is not spoken here hardly at all, but everyone is friendly and little if any problems in getting the right food or drink.

Also have a bank of computers along the wall where you can surf the net, check emails, etc.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

We came in to see a soccer game. The food was very good and they have free WI-FI, even though they gave us the password after we asked for 3-4 times :)

“Awesome drinks, free pool, great wifi and good times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012

This place is awesome. Just off 5th away from all the tourist traps on quiet 10th Ave.

The drinks are very reasonable priced and potent (2x Dos XX Lager for $30MXN, huge Piña Colodas, Mojitos, Margaritas for $47MXN)

Next there is free pool on a good table along with a bunch of other games like pictionary and scrable.

Free Wi-Fi - Cablemos Internet 8-10Mbps down/ 1up, ping times of under 150ms - one of the few free wi-Fi I have found in Playa fast enough for a Skype call.

Lastly great food, free peanuts with every drink order, and just a great place to hang out in. A/C to keep you cool!

“Nice food, cold beer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

Always go here for lunch after a Cenote dive trip with Manta Divers (Cancun). Food is always top-notch (whether I have the alambre, the molcahete or the papas con chorizo), and what is more important, the beer (Dos Equis Ambar) is excellent.
I understand the German owner sold out last year, and that the employees are running it now... let's hope the quality stays the same, 'cos if so they are sitting on a gold mine!

Sports Bar atmosphere, with pool tables for the lads and internet terminals for the geeks. WiFi equipped (ask for the WEP key). Never been there in the evening so comment on night-life.
