    We chose Plank for a Birthday celebration! Absolutely, one of our favorite parts of the Riviera Mayan trip. The food, staff, ambiance- nothing could have been better. We will be recommending this restaurant to everyone! Thank you so very much for making our night so special.

    Not what it used to be. Noise is a huge problem on that street. Adjoining restaurant cranks their horrible sound system up so much you can’t converse at all. Food was average and nothing memorable. Disappointing to see how far it’s overall quality has declined

    We arrived at Plank on time for our confirmed Open Table reservation on Christmas Eve. The hostess proceeded to tell us their open table was not working and refused to seat us even when I showed her our confirmed reservation. The hostess made us wait on the street for 30 minutes to see if she could find us a table but still wouldn't seat us even after a 9 top walked out immediately after sitting down. I travel to Playa several times a year, we frequent plank when in town however they have lost our business forever. This was very disappointing especially as they made no effort to accommodate us and told us it was our problem their open table was not working.

    The worst experience ever ! Beginning with the service - waitress took forever for taking order, checking on us, and being attentive to drinks. The music was blasting ! For a club, it may have been okay but for a restaurant? Could not interact with my party and enjoy the “meal”. Now to food - ordered the ravioli - al dente? Not even close ! Undercooked/hard... Wouldn’t recommend this place...

    Greeted nicely, started out well, but once the food came out, it all fell apart.... no one ever came back, and the two rib eye steaks we had were very tough, one inedible. Finally the hostess took over to get us our check so we could leave.

    Great meal. Loved the ambiance and they sung happy birthday for my cousin’s 40th. The food was good, not amazing though. Ceviche wasn’t the best. For the price, not the best value in Playa but you won’t get sick and the service was 5 stars

    Queriamos una cena rica para celebrar nuestros cumpleaños y probar el Beef Wellington ! La experiencia fue excelente, nuestro mesero Alan muy amable y profesional, la comida y los cockteles deliciosos. Varios meseros nos cantaron las mañanitas a la hora del postre( acompañado de una luz de Bengala) y fue una muy linda atención. Todo nos gustó y regresaremos. Gracias a todo el equipo de Plank !

    Good place to go for the ambiance and atmosphere. My salmon came by itself. No sides. And had little flavor. Other dishes were ok but not outstanding. They were out of several items including short rib.

    The food is fabulous! Like other restaurants in Playa, they are in the process of adding staff for the busy season. Service was slow due to our server having too many tables. When the server did interact with us, Christian was excellent.

    Restaurant couldn’t have been better. The restaurant was closing the next day due to the Corona Virus. You would never have known that by seeing the way the staff treated all of the patrons. Five of us had the tasting menu and each course was better then the previous one. Please support this restaurant once Playa reopens

    This restaurant was awesome!!! We went with a group of 10 people for brunch. The ambiance was gorgeous and talk about bang for your buck!! Everything from the fresh pressed juice to the main course was delicious. As part of the breakfast deal, they also give you some pasties, coffee, fresh fruit, etc. along with the entree. All of this was about $14 USD. Definitely go here!
