    Restaurant was in a great location, in a very fun part of town and close enough to the water. Service was very good. Food was just ok, some meals came out much earlier than everyone else. Food quality and preparation could use some attention. Overall good place to eat.

    We've been twice already in our first 8 days in Playa. This place is amazing. We absolutely love the Fish Au Gratin (does not have cheese at all) and the Tuna. The portions are huge and the cooking is on par with some of the best we find in Chicago. Nothing but praise not only when compared to the other options in Playa but really for any city in the world this would stand out. We love it!!!!

    We live in Playa and have not eaten in Luma in awhile. My wife and I had a great experience and dinner there. It has a chill vibe and excellent service. A reservation is a good idea because there are about a dozen tables and most are outside. Highly recommended.

    Good food, drinks on par and service ok. Great location very close to the beach. Service could use more training as there was confusion on a simple order and long wait time for meal end to end but when on vacation the time was actually appreciated and not a bother. My biggest issue was a rude woman with her child who didn’t know how to sit down and respect being out and not at home. Jumping up and down on a wood structure is both unsafe and disruptive and nobody on staff thought it was right to correct them. I spoke up and literally got stared at for the remainder of their stay. I was unbothered but the staff should have corrected that behavior not the patrons. I’d go back because the food was delicious but they can definitely find room for improvement in service.

    We celebrated our 20 year anniversary at Luma Taverna del Mar. The food was excellent. Our server, Jira, was great and very attentive. The seafood was fresh and light. The best thing was the dessert, the chocolate fondant was probably the best thing we ate on our Cancun trip. We would definitely come back if we make a trip back to Cancun.

    Es la tercera vez que visitamos Lima, llegamos con muchas ganas ya que habían estado cerrado Nos dieron una mesa y Y un mesero se acero, le preguntamos sobre un cóctel peor no sabía explicarlo y vino una mesera que ya habíamos conocido, creo se llama Girogia, ella nos explico los cócteles nos tomo la orden y le pedimos un tiradito. Llegaron los cócteles le preguntamos el espacial y ordenamos los fuertes. Bueno el tiradito tardo como 40min en llegar, la mesa de alado le sirvieron Antes q a nosotros, después El Fuerte llego también con retraso, la carne con mal termino, la pasta especial del día con mejillones y todos los mejillones cerrados, el tiradito no tenía sabor completamente soso La verdad muy mala experiencia, había un cumpleaños o algo y solo la mesera estaba trabajando. Los otros dos meseros no habían nada. Pedi la cuenta a tres personas diferentes, hasta que no se l pedí a Giorgia no la trajeron En fin bastante desastre....

    This place was good, but not great. It's a good atmosphere, and the service was just fine, but the food was just ok in my opinion. I got the seafood wheat pasta and I would not order that again, but the arugula/burrata cheese appetizer was good.

    I always love to visit Luma when I am in Playa. Its locates on one of my favorite streets and close to the beach. The patio is great and the food always fantastic. I highly recommend if you are looking for a italian-med fusion concept with good seafood. The burrata appetizer and mushroom risotto and was our favorite!

    Everything was fabulous about this restaurant, with well one exception. We sat out front outside and the Greek restaurant next door had a novice singer (karaoke style) that was way too loud that we could have done without. The octopus was the best I ever had. Loved every bite. Desserts were spectacular too. Service was great on a beautiful night in Playa. I look forward to next time. Salud.

    Great restaurant as far as food was concerned. The lobster pasta was the best pasta dish I ever tasted. Wonderful. Our major complaint was service. We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived at 6:00. It was a special birthday dinner so we asked for the table on the deck. The waiter told us it was reserved and could not nor would he seat us at our preferred table. We were finished by about 8:30 and that is when they finally seated a party at the table we wanted. So the table sat empty for over two hours, yet they would not accommodate our request. Not sure what was going on here, but it certainly did not endear the restaurant to us. With so many great restaurants in Playa to choose from, service is what stands out. In this case it did not.

    This place has a special place in our hearts because, given that we loved the food so much, we went to Luma two times during our trip. However, I am not sure if it was the amount of customers that they had one day, but our food took a long while to come out which made our dinner longer than anticipated. Despite that Luma’s service was not that great, the food is exceptional and I totally recommend it to anyone who loves seafood, fresh ingredients, high-quality pastas, and tasty desserts!
