This is the place to go, if you want to try a restaurant where the locals go! Great food, good drinks, not overpriced and friendly waiters. Good vibes!

The food is great. One can eat shrimp cooked in a variety of styles and flavors from butter garlic to super spicy. It's a no frills spot with great food.

I've been to Playa every January for the past three years and this spot is right down the road from the condo I stay at. I make multiple trips here throughout my time in Playa and the food is always fantastic. I always order extra because everything is so fresh and they close fairly early so better to have leftovers...

The smoked tuna taco is the best taco I have ever had. I still dream about it two years later. Planning to return to Mexico, and I am tempted to come back to Playa Del Carmen just to have this taco. You have to go here.

I like to go there with my hubby and generally we have had a good service. Im Mexican and I have tried other amazing seafood places and I think this one is a little bit overpriced. But if you don't mind to pay a few more pesos then this wont be a problem. The micheladas with chamoy are really good!... More

We have heard that Los Aguachiles was a place we needed to visit. So we took an advantage of an opportunity one afternoon to have lunch there. We were met at the hostess station and shown to a table we selected. They have fans located throughout the dining area to keep the day's temperatures at bay. The waiter(s) promptly brought... More
