This place has excellent stuffed peppers. The service is good & the staff is really friendly. It's right in the middle of everything. Here is pics of the menu.

We stopped here a couple times for breakfast. Very good authentic Mexican dishes. The service was friendly but a bit slow. So be patient....

I just had the green enchiladas with cheese and they were amazing! My husband had the steak fajitas and they were wonderful as well. I will definitely come back again!

The restaurant is nice, we had breakfast there. But the price is too high for what it offers. There are a lot of other places cheaper than this and good as well.

A good choice for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Staff is very friendly and Pez has become a great meeting place. Lots of Canadians! Always a go-to spot when visiting Playa del Carmen.

Stopped by for a few drinks to sit on the swings and people watch on 5th Avenue! Mojitos were good and beer was cold!

Pez Vela was our meeting spot on 5th Ave to meet friends also on vacation. This place did not disappoint! Great atmosphere and an awesome patio in the street. Good selection of local beers and of course margaritas! Server was attentive to our needs and was always refilling our drinks!

We visited this place last year but I could not remember the name. Food and drinks were good. Nice variety on both. Only downside was trying to be sold a bottle of tequila with our picture on it which was way over priced just to see them actually throw it away after we declined.

Come here and see the world get smaller. The staff is unbelievable their ability to remember all the regulars names that only come once a year is incredibly impressive. Rodrigo, Jose luis Have been tending the bar for over 8 years! Oscar & Roberto are adding to this super cool tradtion of super bartenders thatmakes this place great! tip call... More
