We have eaten many times at Playa Maya and it has become a must for us when in Playa Del Carmen. The service and food are both excellent and the location with toes in the sand is also amazing. We always get the ceviche and shrimp cocktail and the paella is also very good. Fish tacos are also very good and wash it all down with a mango margarita. MMM wish I was there now !

You can only get to this place through the beach and it is only open until 5:30pm. It doesnt look like much from the beach but the food was great. We had coconut shrimp which was the best we have ever had. And the steak tacos were also very, very good. Definitely worth a stop.

If you are in Playa and staying in the area (at the beach end of 8th street from 5th Ave) you are very close to a fantastic meal at this wonderful beachfront restaurant. It is not overpriced as other tourist spots, the service wonderful and a local menu. Famous for their coconut shrimp, their salads and tacos are tasty too. Nobody is going to try to flag you in, as it speaks for itself. At the end of 8th, go right and go over the sand for 1 minute. Enjoy!

Excellent all the time! We have eaten many meals here from breakfast to dinner. Right on the beach, can sit inside or right on the sand under a palapa. Of course I have tried the coconut shrimp they are famous for. The tacos are all excellent, my favourite is fish tacos. All the meals I have tried are great. Husband loves the Playa Maya burgers. The serving staff are all great, just love them! Soo very friendly and knowledgable about the area as well. Cannot wait to go back!!!!!!
