The Food - without fail - was excellent - and for that alone, I give it 4 stars. Seriously, if you are a family, or a couple...please go out of your way to seek this restaurant out. You will not be disappointed. Unfortunately, I was a solo female traveler. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF BREAKFAST STAFF... I experienced completely awful service... More

This is a restaurant you should not miss. It is off the beaten path 1 block from 5th Avenue. It is never crowded as it is hidden from view unless you are staying at the hotel Aventura Mexicana. The service and cuisine are both excellent. We had breakfast there every day and dinner twice which included a meal where Manuel... More

Great steaks, tequila shrimp and drinks! Teens could eat there while we walked outdoors shopping and enjoying the music and night air

We returned to Aventura Mexicana this past February and again were delighted with the offerings at Mayan Bistro, the hotel on the premises. Everything we sampled was superb; "chicken mignon", chicken breast, stuffed with bacon and goat cheese, topped with a roasted pineapple sauce: salmon florentine and an amazing spinach salad, adorned with candied pecans, bacon and pear slices. We... More

On a business trip and getting back late several nights in a row and we landed here two nights. The first night we had the crab tostadas as an appetizer to share between two people. Super yummy. We also shared a chicken Caesar salad, also delicious. First night we had a spinach/mushroom calzone which honestly we weren't fond of. The... More

This was our first dining experience in Playa after a long travel day... we ran across it while looking for another restaurant. We got full on chips and appetizers so ended up not ordering the main entrees we had intended. We had ceviche which was good (although as the trip went on, we had it several more times at other...

Visited this restaurant as part of a group of 14 for dinner. Good setting and efficient service. Everyone appeared to enjoy their cocktail/ drink which were quickly made and delivered. We had two vegetarians in the group and they had no problem choosing a meal. I had the chicken mole as I had not tried it before. The chicken was... More

Escape the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave and dine with us in our beautiful gardens just a block off 5th Ave on 22nd. Our service is friendly and sincere while our cuisine is an international blend that reflects the diverse culinary backgrounds and experience of our chefs. We are sure you will love our food as much as we do!! Oh yeah we also have the biggest wine pour in all of Playa!!
