Last visited 11/14. Two years later, they have new tables and a menu that's easier for the gringos. I had the smoked tuna tostada and side of quacamole. Both were outstanding and the price was very reasonable. I always visit the restaurant on Calle 34 because it's less touristy and feels more authentic.

This is 4th time I visir this place And I always keep coming because of the excellent food And service. I usually visit it twice per trip because its so good. Definetly try the shrimp tacos or the smoked tuna tacos. The coconut shrimp starter is a must todo. The aguachiles are all delicious I usually have cayo de hacha.

The service, food and prices are all exceptional for Playa just off 5th Avenue. All the tacos are amazing but we enjoyed the pork taco which was next level. Anything with shrimp is a winner also. Tasty local beers to wash it all done. The Pescadores Pale Ale from Puerto Morelos is fantastic.

We were quite lucky to find this place. It was close to where we were staying(hyatt grand) and saw quite a few people here with what looked like locals. My wife had really good fish tacos. The grilled octopus was recommended to me and did not disappoint. Quite tasty! I've only had octopus in like a ceviche or cold salad.... More

We've heard the Los Aguachiles is THE place if you want good, authentic Mexican grub.

So we headed out today to the one further from here and we had a deeeelicious lunch. The restaurant itself... More
