Purobeach Restaurant at the Fives Downtown

The Purobeach Restaurant is a rooftop restaurant option in Playa Del Carmen. This open air restaurant sits atop the new Fives Downtown Hotel & Residences. The vibe is lounge/chill with nice music, ocean breezes and Mediterranean menu stylings. This restaurant is perfect for that romantic dinner or stylish night out. The restaurant is open to the public as well as hotel guest.

If you come during the day the restaurant provides a lunch menu for those enjoying the rooftop pool and views. The hours are  Sunday to Wednesday from 12:00 pm to 11:00 pm and Thursday to Saturday from 12:00pm to 12:00 am. Here is our review.

What is the menu like?

You can expect Mediterranean style with slight Mexican influences. There are also meat dishes like their delicious flank steak. There are also some lighter Asian dishes as well. All of the menu is complimented by special cocktails and full bar option.

Our recommendations for this restaurant

This restaurant is a great place to get up and see the view. There are only a few rooftop restaurants in Playa Del Carmen and this is one of them. Because this is a special restaurant we are adding it to our list of restaurants for that special night out in Playa Del Carmen. This list is for those that have one night to go out and want one of the more special locations.

Tip: Make reservations for around sunset time since this restaurant has a great view facing west. You can always stay later and move over to the Purobeach bar to continue your evening.

We think that since the rooftop pool is also open to the public you will be ordering off the smaller lunch menu for the Purobeach Restaurant. If you come for during the day we highly recommend the burger, we think it is one of the best burgers in Playa Del Carmen!
