Akumal Restaurant Review - La Cueva del Pescador

Now that you are in the Riviera Maya, I would suspect you are searching for some fresh fish to sink your teeth into. Well, look no further. For many years, La Cueva del Pescador has been serving fresh fish for locals and visitors. Their secret? The owner is a local fisherman who has been fishing in the Caribbean since 1982. He is the secret to Cueva del Pescador's continued success. Great margaritas, super friendly staff (his kids), and its central location helps, but the fresh catch served...

Pizza at Piola Restaurant Playa del Carmen Mexico

This is where Italy meets Mexico. Piola Restaurant is tucked away on the corner of 38th street and 5th Ave close to the beach in Playa del Carmen. Their thin crust pizzas and homemade pastas are a popular local and visitors choice. The basil martini I suspect is the hit of the evening and should be. Top it off with great ambiance, nice people, and good prices and we think it is a winner. More than 40 Pizzas to choose from Their pizza menu is extensive with so many choices it is hard to pick...

Restaurant Review: Cafe Martin

Posted November 17, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Riviera Maya Restaurants

Apple_Pie

"Happiness is Homemade" That's the mantra at Cafe Martin. Everything at Cafe Martin is homemade, by Canadian expats who made Playa del Carmen home in 2008. Let's start with the baked goods.  Its easy to spend a morning sipping a cup of coffee and enjoying apple pie, chocolate chip banana bread,  or if you are like me cheese cake is a fine way to start the day.  Made fresh, you can choose from a variety of cakes, pies and cookies.   Get it to go, if you prefer and don't forget to get a...

Restaurant review: Kaxapa Factory Playa del Carmen

Posted July 23, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Riviera Maya Restaurants

Kaxapa Factory Restaurant Playa del Carmen

Kaxapa is a hidden gem in Playa del Carmen's realm of restaurants.  This family-run eatery offers Venezuelan fare that is fresh, made with local ingredients and produce.  One of the menu items we liked best was the cachapas,  pancake made of corn meal. Their South American menu has vegetarian options and gluten-free!  The service is warm and welcoming, and the pricing is great too since it is off the main drag, you're not paying tourist prices like you would on the Quinta. Loco Gringo...
