  1. We are a couple on a budget in Playa this winter. Today we went on the prowl for one of the lunch deals you suggested. Heads up, La Perla seems to be closed, as in gone. We had a lovely lunch, Menu de dia for myself and steak tacos for my husband. Louis is the owner and he was friendly and spoke English, gave us tastes of a few things on the daily special and taught us to ask for the menu of the day, not the lunch special. Mole was sublime! Thanks for the suggestion. This place is new in town and could use some referrals!

    • Hello. Yes La Perla is closed for renovations because it had a fire. It should be open in a week or so. We do have a note on the main article but no everywhere it is mentioned in the website. Where did you go for lunch? You mentioned Luis, was that Piknik?

      • You will be happy to know that La Perla is back open after a total rebuilding!! This is a great place for lunch!

  2. Hello,
    I will be traveling to Playa Del Carmen in the month of August for our wedding. The wedding is going to be at Iberostar and I was thinking of hosting a rehearsal dinner for the wedding party outside of the resort. Do you have any suggestions of restaurants where I would be able to host a group dinner for 25?

    • We certainly can suggest a few places to check out. Let us ask you a few questions: do you want a place that has cover in case of rain? Do you want a beach, roof or 5th Avenue location? Is there a type of cuisine you would like? Do you have a budget? and if so is it high, medium or low? If you want to send us a message to our contact under about here our website we can send you some options.
