    Fuimos a festejar un evento para final de año y los platillos estaban fríos, parecía comida de bufete, los mariscos no estaban frescos y el precio muy elevado para lamentablemente esa experiencia

    Don't judge a book by its cover. We went on NYE with a pre-set menu. This is tiny, very modest looking restaurant. My wife and I felt overdressed, as we sat near guests wearing shorts and kids crying. But the food, presentation and service was exceptional and worthy of any 5 star restaurant.

    Myself and two friends have been coming for PDC every year since 2011. We’ve seen it change a lot. As 5th Ave gets busier and busier and more bigger restaurants take over, we are always happy to find these little off the beaten track places like Luma. It’s quiet with attention to detail in their food and hospitality. The octopus was a stand out!

    This is the second time I’ve been to Luma and it was even better than the last. The food is delicious, beautifully plated, with a decent portion size. The staff there really makes the experience special and brings over so many drinks and appetizers on the house. They really are the best restaurant staff I’ve ever seen. And to to top it off, they have some of the best desserts I have ever eaten. I will return to this restaurant every single time I come to Playa. You can’t miss it!

    We absolutely loved our experience. We celebrated our anniversary and everything that they did was so thoughtful and sweet. Our server's English was amazing! He went above and beyond. He gave us great food and drink recommendations. The food and drinks were all amazing. When it came time for dessert, they played us a special song and lit a firework. Our dessert was on the house. Our server also took such amazing pictures and videos from the night. We are so sad that we forgot his name, or else we would give him a shoutout. He should really get recognition for this evening. It was magical. We will not forget this evening!! Highlight of our time in Playa del Carmen.

    Restaurant was in a great location, in a very fun part of town and close enough to the water. Service was very good. Food was just ok, some meals came out much earlier than everyone else. Food quality and preparation could use some attention. Overall good place to eat.

    We've been twice already in our first 8 days in Playa. This place is amazing. We absolutely love the Fish Au Gratin (does not have cheese at all) and the Tuna. The portions are huge and the cooking is on par with some of the best we find in Chicago. Nothing but praise not only when compared to the other options in Playa but really for any city in the world this would stand out. We love it!!!!
