We really enjoyed our dinner here tonight. The tuna steak was wonderful and I also enjoyed the Bosc salad. My husband had table side Caesar salad and the line chicken which he loved as well. A couple solid kids choices for our seven year old. Our waiter Ray was on point and there was a great view of the 5th Avenue hustle and bustle. Great choice!

Stayed in Playa del Carmen within walking distance of Fifth Ave. Despite staying at an all-inclusive hotel, had dinner at Madre Tierra twice! Staff was very accommodating for my 6-yr old, and service was top notch. Would highly recommend and will be back.

The table side Caesar salad is one of the best I have ever had. We all had a seafood dish and they were tasty but about average for playa restaurants. Also liked the setting above 5th. Attentive service. Beware of the photographer! He will take your photo without permission and then come back to sell you items with the photo.

Ate dinner at Madre Tierra on our recent 2-week stay in PdC - we have eaten there several times on previous trips. Location is superb - above 5th Avenue. We love the fact that the restaurant has a non-smoking section. Service is always first class - very relaxed and professional. The guacamole prepared at the table is exceptional. Can recommend any of the fish and shrimp dishes as well as the lemon chicken. Certainly plenty of food. Drinks were also very good. Will return!

Two couples along with our 9 month old went here to have a steak dinner. It did not disappoint. The surf and turf consisting of lobster or shrimp was excellent. The pasta was also very good. Probably the best part was the table side Cesar salad that was prepared for us. Best I've had. Our waiter Ray and his apprentice Lou were top notch. It was nice to sit above the busy street and watch the people without too much noise and distraction.
