Went here and had a stuffed poblano along with some lobster tails. It was all very good, and the service was great.

Really enjoyed Blue Lobster! Staff and service was great, food was delish. We started with the tempura shrimp and veggies and liked it. We each had the coconut shrimp.

Wanted a good seafood night and got it! Ordered the sea food feast for two, everything was great! Many Fish, shrimps, two lobster tails and others. Service was high class for a restaurant around here, and the atmosphere at 9:00pm there before all the parties begins is great! Would go again!

My husband absolutely loves seafood. For our last night we decided to eat somewhere other than our resort. He researched seafood restaurants on Tripadvisor and read good things about the Blue Lobster so that's where we decided to go. Once we arrived we were seated and loved the atmosphere. We ordered the chips/guacamole appetizer. It was a huge portion and... More

The lobster was over cooked which made it dry. The one item that was excellent was the shrimp ceviche. Service was okay but not to the level of my satisfaction. The restaurant is in a great location and restaurant environment is good.

Great Lobster and a good atmosphere just of 5th Ave. The menu is extensive, perhaps too extensive, and the prices comparable to many 5th Ave restaurants. Diego our waiter was excellent but overall the restaurant should condense the menu and concentrate on what they are good at LOBSTER.

We ate lunch here and the lobster risotto was delicious and well prepared. The lobster pasta had more fish flavour than what we are used to eating, but is was still good. It was great to have an entire bowl of juicy limes for our cokes and water. The washrooms were clean and the service was timely.

In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.
