If you don't mind going some way of the beaten path, away from the fifth avenue that is, this is a very good choice for affordable meat.
The place is very clean, all closed in and air conditioned. The service is very attentive.
I had a salad for starters and my guest had a soup, very good.
As a main course we decided to share "la parillada para dos a tres personas" which is a great way to experience all kinds of cuts and sausages. The meat was juicy and tender, I doubt you will find better in any restaurant on the fifth, and certainly not at this price.
The only reason I did not give it a five star is that it is located by the highway, although you forget about it once you are inside.
Feel like meat and don't mind not being on the fifth, then it is definitely worth it.

After many Mexican and Italian restaurants in Playa Del Carmen an enjoyable change is in order, Fonda Argentina presents beef dishes prepared in the Argentine Style. The restaurant is located on the "Carratera" at the north end of Playa Del Carmen as you return from Cancun. It is on the corner and is readily apparent. The food is very good, and the beef excellent for Mexico. Many little starters and a nice choice of condiments. If you enjoy Argentine beef preparation you will enjoy Fonda Argentina.
