“Amazing for breakfast and dinner!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We had breakfast and brunch at Imprevist and loved it so much that we came back for dinner. The fruit/granola at breakfast was a great touch, and the thai chicken salad I had with my brunch was absolutely amazing! We came back for dinner and the restaurant was transformed into a cozy, candlelit place that was our most romantic dinner of the trip. Andres was the best waiter we had in Playa. Can't wait to come back on another trip!

Dear Guest,
You said it all so perfectly and we thank you for doing so! We offer two different but equally exceptional experiences at Imprevist. Our casual breakfast and brunch service is so lovely and makes everyone feel at home. At dinner time we turn down the lights in our intimate dining room offering a unique menu and a delicate and sweet environment for you to enjoy as a couple, with family or with friends. Thank you again and definitely we hope to see you back with us the next time you return.

Best Regards,

“Excellent breakfast”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

One of the best breakfasts in Playa. Go hungry as you get quite a selection of mini pastries, jam, unlimited coffee, a juice, small yogurt, granola and honey course, a fuit plate and a main breakfast entree. Food is excellent. All for $150 pesos. My hotel gave discount so I paid $120 pesos ($approx. $10). Worth it for $150 or $120 pesos!

Loved the brunch here. The food was great and the atmosphere was very quaint. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. Would recommend for young families.

“One of the best breakfasts places ever”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We ate at Imprevist just about every day for breakfast during our week-long stay in Playa. The staff there is wonderful and they remember your order if you go there day after day. The setting is great and while lively, it is still quiet enough for you to have good conversation even if you are seated outside.

The restaurant starts you off with a basket of delicious baked muffins and pastries followed by a wonderful plate of assorted fruit with honey, yogurt, and granola toppings. Our breakfast came with coffee and juice, although I also had their wonderful mimosas on occasion.

Their sopes of cochinita pibil are to die for! As is their salmon omelette, and burrito. I asked for the egg-white omelette with vegetables and always found it delicious. Most meals come with a side of potatoes that are wonderful.

For a high-quality meal, great service, and wonderful atmosphere, go to Imprevist!
