    A real surprise. The restaurant is located away from the cacophony of the touristy 10 Avenida Nte. The ambiance is chilled out and friendly. The food is outstanding. We loved the Nikkei ceviche, shrimp anticuchos, and tuna tiradito. The meal was so good, we came back the next night, our last in Playa del Carmen. Kind thanks to Diego for the great, thumbs up service. Try the creative cocktails. It was by far one of the best food experiences anywhere.

    This restaurant is a short walk outside of the touristy area. The server greeted us warmly and inquired about allergies. Everything was delicious and flavorful. You will get quality, not quantity at this restaurant. We sat outside near the trees. We would come back.

    The fish and meat dishes were spectacular from the mahi ceviche to the Loma soltado. Everything had taste and textural twists that made this place special. Our waiter was a stand out and it was unbelievable that it was his first day. He made sure the kitchen prepared all food within the confines of our extensive allergies. He remembered our orders impeccably and provided insights and enthusiasm.

    Una experiencia excelente el ceviche mixto estaba muy rico una entrada para degustar. La paella un poco picosa pero con buena porción para compartir. Los tostones que acompañaban el ceviche son los más deliciosos que he probado al igual que el pulpo. El ambiente es tranquilo y tiene un estilo de terraza pero relajado con naturaleza interior. Los mojitos estaban en su pinto deliciosos en especial el de maracuya

    EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED ... were so looking forward to this Peruvian /fusion restaurant and we expected more from a restaurant with a Michelin Star Chef! First we were sat at the least desirable table after being told the table by the wall was reserved for others and there was no other tables available - then moments later a young couple arrived and I heard them say they didn't have a reservation but they were brought inside to a lovely table at the back of the restaurant. When I confronted the hostess, she gave us the table that was apparently reserved. Upon receiving our appetizers - we were told it was last call for drinks and then 10 minutes later they asked us to pay early because they were closing early. At that point I asked where our drinks were because we hadn't received them and they had already disassembled the bar area! Our one entrée came out and the server walked off without a word. I assumed she went to get the other but didn't return, once it was done, she returned to collect the plate and asked us to pay the bill (again) at which time I asked about the chicken entrée -she looked puzzled then returned to the kitchen to tell the Chef that we were still waiting for a dish. By this time the kitchen staff had already cleaned up and put everything away and were ready to head out (open kitchen style to seating area) then two of the scrambled to make my chicken dish and the same dish for the table next to us whose entrée was also 'forgotten'. The dish wasn't very good, but that that point we were still hungry so we ate most of it. I think the only reason the restaurant is still in business is because the Chef (owner) actually is pretty creative but he clearly doesn't know how to run a restaurant. I would not give this place a second chance!

    La comida es exquisita! El precio bastante accesible y el servicio excelente. El lugar tiene ambiente sin embargo sus mesas y bancos son bastante incómodos lo que hace que, aunque quieras, no te puedes quedar mucho tiempo a disfrutar de sus cokteles. Además, hace mucho calor y no tienen tantos ventiladores

    Food was ok. We had 3 different ceviche plates and octopus appetizer. The ceviche was so citrusy that it was not enjoyable considering I love lemon and limes but it was over the top. All of them tasted very similar as the lemon/lime mixture over powered the flavor The octopus was fantastic. Overall was ok experience. If you are looking for ceviche there are other ceviche restaurants.
