Today was our first visit to Imprevist and it won't be our last. Everything was delicious, especially the waffles. Relaxing atmosphere, very clean, and excellent service and ambiance. Glad we discovered this restaurant while visiting the Candle Store across the street.

The staff is extremely friendly, by far the nicest people I've met in Playa. Next to that, the food is very good! The atmosphere is perfect. It is very centrally located, however just outside the very touristy Avenida 5. Perfect place for a romantic dinner!

We just had a beautiful dinner at Imprevist. The decor, service and food were without a flaw. It is a cut above any of the restaurants in the area. Being on a quiet street was an added plus. We shared the salad and the mussels and clams and then had rack of lamb with with puréed lentils and a tamarind... More

We stayed in a condo right off Calle 14/Primera Avenida, right around the corner from Imprevist. We found it during a morning walk on our first day, stopped in and never looked back. Went back two more times for breakfast, including Christmas morning. First two visits we sat outside, which is lovely. Third visit was inside, which I was bummed... More
