    El restaurante se encuentra en la terraza, en un área muy linda del hotel, sin embargo para cuando llegamos 8:30 pm, la mitad de las luces del lugar ya estaban apagadas, como si ya estuvieran a punto de cerrar, parecía que habían reservado ahí unas mesitas para los últimos comensales. Los platos fuertes los trajeron a la mesa inmediatamente después de que habían llegado las entradas, tuvimos que comerlos fríos porque no habíamos terminado con el primer tiempo. Niños corriendo entre las mesas. Muy decepcionante. En definitiva hay mejores lugares en Playa del Carmen.

    This is a really nice restaurant on the beach and it is really aesthetically pleasing, but the food is not worth the price for the experience. The quick fire show on the beach was just OK. I was with a group of four and we got the buffet for $69 per person, we had much better food for a much lower price during our stay in Playa Del Carmen. Do not make a reservation for the experience.

    Wonderful tequila tasting paired with traditional Mexican cuisine. Our tequila guide was amazing and very knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. Some of the food was great but was not so great. The first course was served on a bed of uncooked rice which was not ideal as the uncooked rice stuck to the bottom of the fluata and had to be careful with your bites. The last course before dessert was tuna which was rather tough so perhaps it was marinated too long. Overall, it was a great experience though and I would recommend it it anyone who wants to learn more about tequila.

    The view of the ocean and the music was fantastic. The calamari was chewy and not appetizing. The sweet potato purée was cold. The garlic shrimp was delicious as were the French fries.

    The superior tequila tasting was fantastic! Excellent pairing of small bites. Not quite a meal, but very satisfying. The tequilas and the education on the tequila process made it a unique and memorable experience. The C grill provided a beautiful environment with a great view.

    This is more of a very casual lunch place. I do not recommend having dinner here. You will be very disappointed. We had drinks and guacamole and left. The guacamole was oily. Very strange way to prepare guacamole. I do not recommend.
