We went back to Imprevist after being away from Playa for 4 years. I reviewed it then after a great experience and it was as good as remembered if not better, if possible. I had the vindaloo. The flavors and use of spices was perfect. Having been to India I had high expectations and this dish went beyond. My husband... More

The food was inventive and delicious. Went to several five star restaraunts and this was the top! Food was sophisticated. On a quiet street with a European feel. On first street and out of fifth street madness.

This is our second visit to Playa del Carmen and we immediately went back for a delicious dinner at Imprevist! The food is inventive and the service impeccable. A must for dinner or breakfast if you're in the area.

On our first night in Playa del Carmen we ate at Imprevist. The waiters were so friendly and so proud of their food. I believe our smiley waiter was Andreas. The food was fantastic. We were actually late for our reservation and they made sure we were seated immediately and kept apologizing for seating us inside and sent over desserts... More

I stayed in Playa in early March and had many a lunch and dinner here. The food is very good with lots of healthy options. The people who work there are also very nice and welcoming. It is a nice relaxing atmosphere and you can choose to eat inside or on the patio out front. I also thought the prices... More

We are returning customers to one of our favorite places for breakfast in Playa del Carmen. The service is excellent and the food is so good. The atmosphere is relaxing and soothing. Coffee & juice is quickly followed by a basket of breads and sweet rolls with homemade jam. I chose French toast this visit, absolutely wonderful! My husband got... More

Having a romantic dinner on a quiet charming street, one bock off trendy Fifth Street was a treat! This restaurant has an Asian and Continental menu for "foodies". The wine list was fantastic and affordable as was the choice of entrees. We had the fresh local fish and a pad Thai with shrimp. Both were Devine. The deserts were fresh... More

We stay at El Taj evertime we come to Playa and love having breakfast at this little gem. We had 11 people this time and they accomodated us all. Enchiladas are delicious. Pancakes and waffles are scrumptious. We will continue to frequent this restaurant. Can't recommend highly enough.
