We chose the Blue Lobster for our Xmas eve dinner and it was a great experience. The lobsters were good and beer and champagne very reasonably priced. Service was quick and efficient.

This was easily one of the most disappointing meals of my life. The food was both under AND over cooked, the service was atrocious, our dinners on the menu were supposed to come with a glass of wine we never never offered or given, the...More

The food was amazing. I had the lobster pasta with broccoli and it was very good. Our waitress was polite and knowledgeable. If your in the mood for seafood this is the place, oh and the wine was good also.

Great meal - we had octopus sauteed with garlic goodness and then the shrimp fajitas. The margaritas were so fresh and delicious. The menu is on a giant board that they bring to the table for you to look at. The prices seemed a bit...More

I had the "Tuna Sashimi" and "Lobster Risotto" and both were very tasty. Good and attentive service in Spanisch and English. I can highly recommend it!

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.
