Food adventures in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Hello! Thank you for checking out my food adventures during my month in Mexico. I’ve provided some quick notes on each place for your next trip. Enjoy.

Must Hits

Primo
Avenida 10, C. 14 Nte esquina, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: Quality food. Great service. Great for people watching.

Los Hijos Del Mar.
77720, 30 Avenida Nte. LB, Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: Nice local spot. Off the beaten path a bit.

Chez Céline
Av 5ta, Calle 34 Nte Esquina, Solidaridad, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: French bakery that also serves breakfast. Everything is great. Except the tiramisu. Everything else is fire though.

Mu. Burgerhouse Av. 10
10 Avenida Norte, C. 24 Nte, Quintas del Carmen, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: I don’t even have to say anything here. Photo speaks for itself.

El Fogón
30 Avenida Nte. 354, Gonzalo Guerrero, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: There’s a few of these around Playa. All great. Super authentic Mexican food.

Alux Restaurant Bar and Lounge
Av Benito Juárez Mz 217 Lt2, Ejidal, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: Best experiential dinner. It’s literally inside of a cave and you can take a tour after dinner.

La Old School Cruderia & Bar
Av. 22 Entre 1era y, Calle Quinta Avenida, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: The unofficial queer bar of the self organized queer WhatsApp group in Playa

Izsla Playa del Carmen
Av. 10 Norte, Calle 8 Nte y, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: So I never actually tried this place but I’m obsessed with it. It’s a taco shop/convenience store/sausage kitchen/ hostel/rooftop club

Club de la Cerveza
5 Av. Norte entre calles 34 y 38 Norte Xaman-Ha, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: One of the large collections of beers in Playa. Ask for Andy. She’ll take care of you.

Oh lala – International Cuisine by George
Calle 14 Nte Bis 147-MZA 147, Centro, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: The fanciest dinner that I had in Playa. Every dish was amazing. The atmosphere was great. Tucked away off one of the main streets.

Meh

Los Aguachiles
Calle 34 Nte Centro, Gonzalo Guerrero, 77710 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: The seafood is good but not every dish is a smash hit.

Cervecería Chapultepec
10 Avenida Nte. 10, Gonzalo Guerrero, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

Note: This place is great if you want don’t want to break the bank. All drinks and food are affectively $1. You get what you pay for.

Skip

La Perla Pixan
Calle 38 Norte Entre 5ta y la playa, Gonzalo Guerrero, 77720 Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico

This place was listed as a must visit because of the grasshoppers and the ancient drink Pulque. Outside of the grasshopper experience, you can skip this place. It’s in the main thirsty area and you’ll ultimately pay more for less satisfaction.

  1. […] The food. SO MANY AMAZING PLACES! Well mostly. If you’re in the primary tourist areas, you’re going to overpay and the food won’t be that great.
