La experiencia de un buen restaurante considera el lugar físico, el servicio, los alimentos y los precios. El lugar es agradable, el servicio no es bueno y aunque no había mucha gente tardaron 20 minutos en tomar nuestra orden. De los tres platillos fuertes seleccionados no había uno y después nos indicaron amablemente que tendríamos que escoger otro pues ya se había terminado ese platillo también.
La presentación de lo que comimos dejaba mucho que desear. El pulpo estaba chicloso. Comentamos esto pero nos dijeron que así era... el atún tenía poca consistencia y la cochinita pibil no tenía condimento, cebolla y hubo que pedir una salsa para acompañarla.
Es una pena el servicio y calidad de alimentos pues la localizacion del restaurante es muy buena.
La relación precio - calidad es muy baja.
Definitivamente no regresaremos a este lugar.

It was one of the best meals we have had in Playa Del Carmen. Huge wine list and very reasonable prices. Pretty decoration and you sit upstairs on a huge open terrace.

We were on our honeymoon and also celebrating American Thanksgiving. We started off with the Guacamole and cheese plate - both tasty. However, the guacamole had some sort of seeds and an air mousse on it, we did not like it. Just classic guacamole will do! The wine list was great, and I had a couple that went well with my entree. I had the duck with the sweet potato purée, it was INCREDIBLE!!! Just add more purée please, there wasn’t enough. My husband inhaled the chicken entree, so that’s a good sign.
The staff was super nice and really attending!
Thanks for making our adventure to La Casa del Agua so special!

My wife and I visited this restaurant recently when celebrating our honeymoon and we were very impressed by everything it offered.

I sent an email to the restaurant prior to our visit to let them know the occasion and they followed this up with a delicious complimentary dessert acknowledging our celebration. The staff were incredibly attentive and inviting.

It was a very memorable experience. We happened to be eating during a thunderstorm, however we were well sheltered at our table on the balcony overlooking the busy street.

I would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion.
The food, staff and atmosphere were amazing and I also felt that everything was well priced for such a fine dining experience offered.

Place is great, food and specially service. Quite honestly we had better service than many places in the USA. Wait staff was very friendly and the food used a lot of local ingredients. The only item that left is wishing for more was the cochinita pibil. I’ve had this dish before made by the locals of Merida and it kinda left a very high standard. Over all it is a great place. We will be back!!

De mis favoritos en Playa del Carmen, con una excelente oferta de platillos bien elaborados y con el toque fantástico del chef. El servicio es excelente sin abrumar, de los pocos lugares que quedan en Mexico donde aun te preparan una maravillosa Cesar en tu mesa.

Carnes, pescados o vegetariano cumple con la promesa y los postres valen la pena guardarles un espacio.

Los detalles para eventos especiales son notables también !

Had dinner here twice while in Playa Del Carmen. Food and service were excellent on both occasions. Fig Salad is a standout, as well as the Miso Morito Grouper. Do not miss dessert here. Our table shared two desserts - a Triple Layer "Chocolate cake", actually a gorgeous round piece of art with layers of white, milk and dark mousse atop a biscuit cookie and coated with dark chocolate and a Hazelnut dessert with some delicious components as well. My only disappointment was the Mayan coffee. The flaming show was wonderful, but the coffee was not even lukewarm. Everything else, however, was amazing...food and service!

Our server, Ruddi, was amazing. The two appetizers we ordered, the tuna ceviche & lobster bisque were to die for!! The mains were just okay. The dessert was perfect, as was the Mexican wine.

Overall it was a very pleasant dining experience in Playa del Carmen. We will definitely be back during our next vacation there!

 (Dallas)·Dined on April 16, 2017

The videos and reviews of this place were misleading. It's not that great. The ambiance was avg at best. The food was not great. I stayed at the Royal playa del carmen and our included restaurants were much better then this one. Our dinner at blue lobster was much better. Also the ravioli my wife ordered was liquid runny mess. We told waiter politely . He just says ok. But they did not take it off the bill or offer alternative. Also, they had an issue with another table complaining and we waited at least 20 minutes after table cleared to get a check. I never write reviews and I'm not very picky but this place was a big disappointment. I would def not recommend for a special occassion.

Probably the BEST restaurant in Playa del Carmen in my experience.
Mouth watering in very bite. We shared 10 dishes and all were outstanding. Try the lamb shank, the guacamole, salads were a delight to the last bite, and the duck tacos...my mouth is still watering!
And the most extensive wine list anywhere, and yes, anywhere .
Do yourself a favor and eat here.
And the wait staff were the best trained and a true pleasure.
Superb in every way.
Loved this restaurant and will certainly be back.
