I dined here with my wife, her sister and my brother in law. The tables out side were full so we set in side. This place has a lot of atmosphere and looks like it could be expensive It isn't. The menu is long and complex and our server explained it to us. Each meal included a choice of soup.... More

We ate outside right next to the street for breakfast. This is in such a great quiet location. All breakfast entrees come with a fruit plate, yogurt, pastries and drinks (coffee,tea,oj). What a lovely and worthwhile restaurant to dine at. Sure worth the money.

We were looking for a delicious breakfast and we found it at Imprevist, along the street close to a pewter & ceramics shop that we love. Presentation of the food was wonderful. I really loved my buckwheat/multi-grain pancakes with fruit. My husband loved his smoked salmon on bagel. The small muffins brought out first were great - chocolate and other... More

I stayed right next door to this establishment while in Playa so I literally ate breakfast here every day expect for one. You can expect fresh fruit, honey granola, coffee and juice, delicious breads / pancakes and egg entree selections. I recommend the Egg's Benedict, Spinach Bacon and Leek Omelette or the Tomato, Spinach and Chorizo Omelette. My husband basically... More

This is truly a hidden GEM in Playa Del Carmen. Family recommended the restaurant which is a bit off the beaten path of 5th Avenue but by only one block. It was as the title suggests an exquisite dining experience. Our serving staff were extremely accommodating with a strong command of english. The descriptions of food preparations were accurate providing... More
