    Amazing breakfasts and lunches, all featuring baked items made right there. Set in a wild garden, it's a great place to get away from it all and enjoy a little tropical paradise.

    Looking for an authentic, neighborhood-style restaurant? El Fogon is one of Playa's best and most popular. The atmosphere is fun, and you'll see a nice mix of tourists and local families dining on tacos and drinking cold beer. Don't miss their Nachos con Pastor, made with pork roasted right in front of you on the famous Fogon.

    Zenzi Beach Bar & Restaurant

    4.5
    7 reviews

    This beach restaurant/ bar was recommended to us by our concierge when we asked where to go in Playa del Carmen that is a chill non touristy beach venue. The Tulum Dream hotel staff knows how to recommend a venue! Zenzi caters more to the backpacking crowd... Super low-key and there for the sole purpose of digging their feet in ...

    Cafe Mogagua

    4.5
    4 reviews

    A favorite haunt for breakfast after our hotel offering was found wanting. It's not very exotic or inventive food, but it is solid and reliable. It's basically just a hipster cafe, picked up and placed into Isla's bustling Centro. My father claims it is the best coffee on island.

    Recently reopened Gitano is a mezcal and tapas bar along Tulum's beach road. There's a dance floor, spicy cocktails, and delicious but quite expensive small plates.

    Jeanie's

    3 reviews

    Often overlooked, right next to Margaritaville but better food and drink prices. A small man made "beach" area right on the water, you can jump off and go snorkeling, there is an old wrecked single engine plane about 10 ft off the white swimming platform. Great place to watch the sunset while eating or drinking your dinner.

    Every time I go through Playa, I make a pit-stop at this shrimp-taco place on the highway. If you're staying _in_ Playa, it's a little bit of a schlep back out to 307, but soooo worth it. The tacos are simple: perfectly fresh shrimp in a tempura batter, fried until perfectly crispy and set on a tortilla with a squidge ...

    Great place for an inexpensive set lunch. The food is standard Mexican with a bit of a Cuban influence--black beans and rice on the side, mojitos to drink. There's a nice outdoor back terrace with fans too.

    If it feels like you're eating in someone's house...you are. This total bargain set-lunch place is very friendly, and indeed, you're sitting in the backyard while the owner cooks up your lunch in her kitchen. There's usually a choice of a couple of dishes each day, and the price includes beans and jamaica (hibiscus) drink and tortillas, and perhaps even ...
