    El lugar muy bonito pero no respetan los tiempos, pedimos entradas y platos fuertes y trajeron todo al mismo tiempo. El taco de rib-eye es el peor taco que me he comido en vida! Los meseros te atienden de afán, no te hacen sentir bienvenido. No vuelvo

    It was our first visit to Playa del Carmen and didn’t stay far away. It was Father’s Day and Dad wanted Mexican. There were two places and he picked this one on a whim. Outstanding choice. It was a Sunday night - meant nothing. On the same street as Coco Bango, a Greek restaurant and mother clubs. There was a mariachi band, a flamingo dancer, Mexican boxer, and sparklers. Fire drinks, outstanding flame steak and pork shared plates. Tacos galore AND they surprised my dad with cake because they read the message from Open Table. Oscar, our water, A+ — simple amazing man. Go. You’ll kick yourself if you don’t. Good for party of 2-10. (as a NYCer in MX)

    The good is very good and the service was amazing. The music is too loud and the restaurant is so dark so might not be a good place for parents who wants to get good food but have to bring along their kids. Also its an open restaurant so no AC if you are looking for a place to cool down. The best part is the mariachi band and other street performers you can watch from the restaurant, live entertainment while eating.

    Went on a chilled out Monday evening as a solo diner, wasn't too busy initially when I arrived but got busier as the evening went on. Staff were very attentive and looked after me. The menu was online and they have wifi which was great as I was on holiday from the UK so did not have my own mobile data. Loved the complimentary starter and the food was delicious (amazing beef tacos and the chocolate cake was to die for, even though I wanted the churros but they were not available which was a shame but I was not disappointed), the vibe and ambiance was great, can see how this would be a fantastic restaurant for a Friday/Saturday upbeat dinner or party with friends. The complimentary after dinner biscuit was a nice touch too! I'd love to come back to Porfirio's if ever I return to Mexico, next time i'd definitely try the cocktails and other menu delights. Perfect restaurant for a special occasion dinner!

    While this place is a must to go every time I’m visiting Playa. This time the food disappointed me a little bit. The Barbacoa tacos were bad and the guacamole was not flavorful. The tamarind margarita was ok. The Maracuya was to die for. As always the carajillos were good. The dessert piece was the ice cream, the ice cream was tooooo hard and couldn’t place it into the cones after a while. The server though was amazing as always their service is the best and the reason I would give a chance again. Still a must to go and try if you are looking for something different but with a Mexican taste

    Disappointing. We ordered steak, bone marrow. Steak was chewy and it’s like they add to many ingredients to all of the dishes. Need to go back to basics. Also has a margarita which was watery. Ambience was good but the music was way to loud, couldn’t have a conversation
