2. La Cueva del Chango

La Cueva del Chango is a restaurant like no other: in the center of Downtown Playa del Carmen, this place is disposed as if it was in the middle of the jungle (that gives it the name of The Monkey’s Cave). The space itself is a giant palapa surrounded by large trees and vegetation. Around the whole area there are small wooden tables that blend in with the view.

La Cueva del Chango offers amazing food for all meals in the day, but their breakfasts are particularly good: their organic juices are tasty and energizing, and their eggs are wonderful in all formats: huevos motuleños, rancheros, revueltos etc. Try chilaquiles!

1. Lara&Luca

How does Lara&Luca manage to have an average review of 5 out of 5 (perfect score) from 600 reviews? My guess: incredible dishes, great great service, and a very nice atmosphere. Among our top 5 best places, this is the top 1 by acclamation.

I will not be the one limiting your possibilities to taste all its menu. But I did not even imagine a croque monsieur sandwich could be that delicious.
