This was one of our favorite restuarants from the area, we went twice! Everyone enjoyed their meal and their drinks are a lot of fun. Get the blue margarita! The coconut shrimp is to die for!

Frozen lobster tail goes against my fresh dogmatic views. But heck their thermadore was cooked perfectly with wine sauce. Lobster was a bit chewy and hard likely reflects the frozen & size. Frozen is the only ding I would comment. Go to any good Chinese...More

Love this place! Great lobster tail at a reasonable price! Dine upstairs for a more dressy feel, or downstairs for a more casual experience!

Sea food restaurant. Absolutely fantastic. Not cheap but you know what you pay for. Few sizes of lobster to choose from. Good service. Food exceptional.

Save your pesos and keep on moving. For the price, the quality is just not there. Nothing seemed fresh and everything just seemed overcooked. We ate at the Grand Hyatt Grill (half price on Thursdays, ladies night) and the seafood was amazing for about the...More

In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.
