“Wonderful food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

The best and most polite waitstaff in playa del carmen. The view is lovely. The food is fabulous. We ordered more than we should eat and ate ever last bitter because it was good. Don't pass up the lobster shrimp bisque. They will even split the bowl for you. This was our 9th visit over 15 years to playa and this was definitely our most enjoyable dinner. It is not cheap but most definitely worth it!!

“excellent food + ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We loved this place! It's above and away from the noise from Quinta Avenida, offering delicious food and great service. A must try if you are around the area.

Our family of 4 ate at at Madre Tierra on 3 ocassions during our 14 night stay. Best steaks along 5th Avenue, great atmosphere above the crowds milling along the street. Staff attentive and excellent value.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Quiet spot above 5th Avenue with amazing food. We both ordered fish, grouper and salmon and both were 5 stars. Wish I could go back tonight!
