    We've been in this restaurant as a gift to ourselves for our honeymoon. The food was delicious! Scenic sea view! Service was good, but we struggle a bit to catch the attention of a waiter. Maybe it was related to the fact that we were there at 8.30 and after an hour they were closing the restaurant and tidying up for next day. Super recommended for a nice dinner to treat yourself with!

    Mahekal and Fuego have not disappointed! This is our 4th time staying here and it is better than before Covid if that is even possible. Food is high quality presentation is amazing service is beyond impeccable! Breakfast lunch or dinner Fuego does not disappoint! Fish is fresh meat high grade and overall experience is such a joy! Your dining experience is just awesome! Beach view refreshing winds! Must I not forget cocktails! Cocktails are some of the best we’ve tasted! Highly RECOMMEND.

    Wonderful! We had the lobster, octopus, tuna carnitas and Pannella cheese. The lobster and octopus were amazing. We had a great beach view and service. Waiter encouraged us to try the Mexican white which had hints of vanilla and buttery and did not disappoint! Very romantic! We also went to porfinios but liked this spot more for the romantic ambiance.

    Playa Del Carmen can be noisy and hectic, but this place is the opposite. A fantastic date night spot on the BEACH with an incredible ambiance and menu. Special treat for my boyfriends bday and they brought out a complimentary dessert of his choosing with a FLAME. So cool. GO HERE! It’s a place you do not want to miss.

    Hice la reservación por open table y al llegar me dijeron que no me podían recibir puesto que solo ven las reservaciones hasta las 2 pm. Había mesas vacías sin embargo me dijeron que eran para los clientes del hotel. Entiendo perfectamente que un lugar no tenga espacio y le de preferencia a sus huéspedes, pero si no van a utilizar open table de manera adecuada a que no lo usen y las reservaciones las tomen únicamente por teléfono. Me hicieron perder tiempo, dinero de traslado y buscar otra opción cuando todo esta lleno en estas fechas y es difícil. No me dieron ni opción a esperar o ver si no llegaban huéspedes, pésima atención al cliente

    The hostess was very rude, even if we had the reservation confirmed through Open Table she refused to give us a table, refusing to talk to us. There were only hotel guests, but since reservations were open, we thought they will honor them. Furthermore we waited 15 minutes in line to be treated like this. Very dissapointing!

    We went here for New Year's dinner, the food was delicious, we had Oysters, loabster, fish, risotto with duck, and even the arrachera pizza was yummy. Also, they had an original and yummy cheesecake. The service was great and the ambience amazing. The manager arranged for us to have more guests, our waiter Ismael was very nice and funny, and made put dinner experience better. The breeze from the sea is so relaxing, the music wasnt loud at all so we could have a nice conversation while eating. After that, we went to Las olas restaurant to enjoy the live music and fireworks, it was a great night. Thank you Fuego. We will be back for sure soon.

    Restaurant superbe au bord de l eau dans un cadre tout aussi splendide mais les prix sont chers même pour nous Français et pas de bonne qualité les huîtres chaudes pas bonnes du tout les quesadilas beaucoup très sèches le homard un peu sec également et pas de présentation pas de sauce à part de l huîtres genre sauce verte. Ce n est pas grave mais il faut faire un effort car le prix est cher quel dommage le cadre est sublime soir du 31 à 23 h hop tout le monde au lit pas d ambiance même pas un fond musical ou ambiance deco décor rien rien qu’elle tristesse pour un pays qui est tellement gai Bon courage et merci quand même.

    Based on very positive reviews read here and there, we were happy to try this “high end restaurant”. Started with leaving a piece of ID at the reception of the hotel (never understood why). Then ordered cocktails (3 kinds and all very average tasting like water and cheap juice). Then came the first appetizer (grilled cheese), à disaster but our hopes were still up for the fish and the suckling pork. Unfortunately and despite the very nice set up and presentation, it just confirmed how bad the food was. Pork was full of small bones, impossible to eat. The fish was dry and completely tasteless. The manager was arrogant and not helpful even though we did not eat any of the food that was brought. Playa del Carmen has to much to offer to waste your time and money in this place. Probably one of the worse experience of the year 2021.

    Love the ambience of the peaceful/beautiful big beach area. The staff were amazing and Andres (our waiter) was extremely attentive and accommodating. He not only voluntarily moved us to a table on the beach but he and other staff members rushed to help us move to another table inside when a small rain storm suddenly passed through. Will definitely be returning again and again.

    Wir hatten eine Reservierung für ein Abendessen anlässlich des Geburtstages meiner geliebten Alicia. Leider war nur noch um 16:45 ein Tisch frei und wir beendeten frühzeitig unserem Badetag. Dort angekommen brachte man uns an einen verdreckten Tisch um uns dann eine Nachmittagskarte zu unterbreiten bzw und uns zu sagen dass ein Abendessen erst ab 19 Uhr möglich sei. So wurde die Geburtstagsfeier zu einem Fiasko wir verließen das Lokal ohne essen und trinken und vor allem um nie mehr wieder zu kommen. Open table hat immer bestens funktioniert, solche Lokale sind Open table nicht würdig.
