Been to Imprevist for both breakfast and lunch.

Breakfast was absoluty fantastic. For 150 pesos you got a lot of value, but more importantly: great service and great quality. We had the NY Bagel and the omelette (Really big one). The pastry's were great too.

For lunch they have to same concept. 150 pesos for a 2 course lunch. We had the Poached eggs with aspergus, the club sandwich and the ceasar salad. All of them were great!

Only regret i have i didn't go here for dinner.

Stayed at El Taj and this is one of their restaurants (Condohotels Playa) The service was amazing and the same goes for the food. We only had one dish that was just ok. Everything else was amazing. I would have used all of our coupons their.
THE ONLY PROBLEM IS: PEOPLE USING COUPONS WERE NOT ALWAYS TIPPING. I DON'T CARE WHAT COUNTRY YOU COME FROM. They deserve tips! PLEASE TIP THIS HARDWORKING STAFF! This is how they make their money.

The breakfast is just ok. Sometimes the pastries are not fresh and it is disappointing you don't get bread. My omelet was just ok and the coffee is not so great.

We tried several restaurants during our 2 weeks stay in Playa del Carmen and this was definitely the best experience. The breakfast was stylish, well prepared and really a treat to start out the day with! Try their Salmon bagel or their omelette and also their french toast. Fantastic dishes, not at least regarding that this was "only" breakfast. The kids loved the pancakes and the waffles with fruit and Nutella.

The dinners we had at this restaurant are taste- and flavor memories to talk about and to try to copy at home...The vegetarian risotto for example was a wonderful dish, better than any italian alike in Italy ever. The Jumbo shrimps was a real gourmet experience.

The atmosphere and the service were the best and really nice. Stylish, service minded and a very high standard. We could use even more superlatives but the grading will reinforce our review.
