The restaurant is in a really cool hotel. The restaurant sits next to their rooftop pool, and nightclub. The view from this rooftop is the best of Playa Del Carmen. Then there is the restaurant, a seafood-heavy menu with a sharing style of dining. We chose to stick to starters/appetizers, of which there are many choices. We loved the wagyu/stonecrab skewers, which is a chunk of high quality beef, and 2 pieces of stone crab, served on a skewer sitting on a small, hot grill. Great presentation, and very tasty. The lobster app is served in 2 sizes depending what you want, and brought sliced for easy sharing, and an excellent sauce accompanying the meat. The drinks were also really good! This is a great choice!

Was staying at Thompson hotel so decided to give this restaurant a chance against my better judgement. We usually stay away from hotel restaurants unless someone we know personally whose palate we trust recommends a place. The sashimi was not fresh and had a fishy smell, a no no in sashimi world! We should've stopped there but waiter advised tartare mixed plate, which was not what we expected. Usually sushi tartare is fish in small chunks arranged in a design. There they served emulsified fish also with fishy smell in small cubes which was awful. We stopped there and when checked arrived for 2 people it had 20% gratuity included without prior consultation. We asked manager who stated that this was not restaurant policy!

Beautiful setting, bad food.

Beautiful restaurant! I ate pretty plainly but my friends who delved into more of the food said that it was the best sushi they had ever had. They also loved the catch specialty drinks. Just a reminder that you can't wear beach wear to the restaurant! We made a quick stop to HandM to get better shoes for my husband who was wearing sandals.

Food flavor and presentation is quite simple, service no matter that are like hundred of waiters is not good, no matter that is friendly. Beverages and wine list is far away of what you would expect from a restaurant of this price. Nice views and just in. Middle of Playa del carmen' frenetic activity. I would not come back again.

The rooftop bar dining area at the Thompson is wonderful. On the Friday we visited we were able to do a tasting menu. Everything was delicious and the drinks were great. Even had a small band playing. Such a fun atmosphere.
