The reviews looked good. The pics as well. However our service was slow and the food was mediocre. The drinks cost more than the food. Then we had to hunt down our waiter to pay our bill. In the end it wasn't good value.

We had Miguel as our waiter, great service. We had a beautifully prepared meal in a gorgeous setting and at a reasonable price! Doesn't get any better than that.

Outstanding food and Service. Very clean and friendly. We had dinner on our last night in Playa Del Carmen. Tried the shrimp pasta. Cocktails were also refreshing. It was outstanding. Favorite server was Gabby. Quite little place away from 5th and the noise.

The service at the Mayan Bistro makes the restaurant. Ate here for breakfast three days and dinner one evening. The food is okay, but the service is lovely.

We stayed in aventura mexicana hotel and we had all -inclusive package in mayan bistro. We enjoyed food here very much. Breakfast had lot of options including mexican and traditional. Everything we ate was cooked to perfection! Restaurant is situated in green garden by the pool and is very cosy.

This place is like a hidden gem. The meals were fantastic and the service wonderful. The setting is quiet enough for either small or larger groups.

We ate every meal at the Mayan Bistro, connected to the Hotel Aventura Mexicana, where we were staying for the 8th time. You do not have to be a guest of the Hotel in order to eat here. It's a Trip Advisor top-rated restaurant, and they get many walk-ins. We have never been disappointed with the food at this restaurant.... More

Escape the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave and dine with us in our beautiful gardens just a block off 5th Ave on 22nd. Our service is friendly and sincere while our cuisine is an international blend that reflects the diverse culinary backgrounds and experience of our chefs. We are sure you will love our food as much as we do!! Oh yeah we also have the biggest wine pour in all of Playa!!
