Had delicious Venezuelan food in Playa del Carmen. The service was great, fast, clean and overall great. I don't remember the names of what I had but there were 7 people in my party and we all had awesome dishes. You cannot go wrong.

We dined here based upon TA reviews. Had a very pleasant evening and can echo what so many others have said about friendly owners and delicious food. But it is not gourmet food. Excellent basic fare and equally excellent price. Recommended though.

The owner and his family were very welcoming and helpful. The food was delicious - we had never tried Venezuelan food before and it was delicious (and so filling). We left very happy!

Over near the park away from 5th, this is well worth a trip. 4 of us visited and each tried something different, and had trouble agreeing on what was best. Friendly service, fan cooled, takes credit cards, does not serve alcohol and can't bring it...More

Before I went to PDC, someone told me that the food wasn't unique, but if you found a place with food from another region or country, those were the best places to eat. I found this to be true, as Kaxapa ("Cachapa") Factory was the...More

Had a late lunch here, we were looking for something gluten free (celiac person amongst us) and saw the great reviews on TA for this place. The place is very cute and clean/nice, the staff were very kind and super helpful with going through the...More

Hola amigo, no es necesario reservar, sin embargo por ser un restaurante pequeño y durante esta época del año, sería recomendable hacerlo.

Dear Tandore, We know there are 3 different options to get here from your hotel, One of them is the little buses. We think the best way is taking one of the ADO Buses. At your service
