Todo destruido para llegar. No fue buena experiencia. La comida fría y sin sabor. El mesero estuvo excelente. La
MÚSICA extremadamente fuerte y peor si cantaban los
Mariachis. Cosa que no se entiende porque son una atracción bien bonita del Lugar y con quienes queremos interactuar o sacarnos fotos pero no se les escucha nada. No volvería en mucho tiempo. Creo que es mejor el de Cancún. Espero puedan mejorar

Tried to order 4 separate things in our group of 4 people and they were out of all of them. The fish was super dry, the Caesar salad was good, the service was ok. Wouldn’t recommend or come back.

comida en general muy buena, salvo el queso fundido que estaba muy salado, sin embargo el encargado de cocina salió a preguntar y se hizo el comentario, no me agradó que la capacidad no está al 30% y tampoco la distancia entre las mesas, detrás mío estaba otro comensal muy cerca y es incómodo para mi el estar pidiendo q mantengan su distancia puesto que el restuarante debe tener delimitado esto, la atención es buena, ojalá ordenen estos puntos porque hay gente que si queremos salir y si ya es riesgo salir mínimo sentirte seguro donde vayas.

Porfirios siempre ha sido uno de mis restaurantes favoritos, pero el de Playa del Carmen es distinto, no me gustó para nada al grupo musical que tenían, de verdad es terrible, con música que para ser un lugar turístico no queda para nada, podrían estar perfectos si quitaran al grupo, sinceramente parecía barezzito, les recomiendo mejor dejar al dj.

Great food and presentation. Very attentive wait staff. Only downfall was that the noise level was over the top. The restaurant has a club vibe feel with great music, but live mariachis competed with it. We couldn’t hear each other at all.

Our family of 4 had a wonderful dinner here on Feb 12, 2020 that was fit for foodies. The service was exceptional and we were treated like family by the staff, from Kana at reception to Carmen the manager and Alonzo and Carlos our servers. The wine list is digital and extensive and we enjoyed a wonderful Mexican red blend. Don’t be afraid of the guacamole with grasshoppers. It was fabulous. The wait staff is helpful in recommending dishes that suit all palates. We celebrated our oldest son’s 30th birthday here and the brought a wonderful butter cake to mark the occasion. Great cocktails as well and our sons returned later in the evening for a drink and were well taken care of. A top spot in Playa del Carmen where you are treated like a local and not a tourist. Thanks to team Porfirio’s.

I was there to celebrate my birthday with my family and friends. The music is so loud that you can’t talk to each other, even if you scream the person on the other side of the table won’t hear you.
The service is not good. They bring more drinks to the table then you order and even if you send them back they will charge you for it...
So far this is the worst restaurant in Playa del Carmen.

I couldn’t recommend this place more for any type of celebration! We went for a birthday and I told our waitstaff and they made it so special, they added fire work candles to the champagne bottle, dessert, they came and sang, they really pulled out all the stops. We had such a fun time celebrating here!
