My two daughters and I paid $40 for a cab ride to and from Origenes, well worth it, so we did it again! We enjoyed this fabulous restaurant twice during our four night stay.

The ceviche, cactus salad, and grouper were better than any I have had. Almost forgot the dessert, so yummy.

Our server was attentive and helpful with selections. He brought us samples of the cactus salad and dessert because we were not sure what we wanted, ended up getting both.

The location is perfect, a little off the beaten path making it less noisy and congested. The outdoor eating area was cozy and live music started at eight.

Two perfect dinners!

Down near the beach in Playa del Carmen, off the beaten path, is a gem of a place called Origenes. Upscale dining with fabulous drinks (you won't need more than one margarita) in a quiet neighborhood. Wonderful, friendly staff.

I couldn't stop eating the marinated vegetables and the tortilla soup was excellent. I tried the chicken mole. The sauce was amazing, the chicken a little dry, but all was forgiven because it was such a great place. If you're traveling with small children, they also serve chicken tenders and hamburgers.

I cannot comment on the scenic view of this restaurant, as it was dark and the street wasn't brightly lit. However, it's just a step away from the beach.

Would definitely return to Origenes!
