First time eating at this location - previously been to Fifth Avenue. Fish tacos here are solid. 29 pesos per taco. Ceviche is ok. Not the best but still tasty. Would happily recommend to a friend.

At the recommendation of a simple article in an Air Canada magazine, my husband, adult son and his girlfriend and I went to supper. The menu is seafood based. We had ceviche, spicy octopus, fried for ah and mezcal cocktails. Food was fresh and outstanding. I didn't care for the drinks, but that's just personal taste - I'm not one... More

We found this restaurant on NYE as it had the shortest wait for a table (although that did not last long!). It had the best fried fish and fried shrimp tacos (31 pesos each!). They were perfectly cooked, with a crispy outer shell. We saw someone else get the calamari and we added it to our order. It was amazing.... More

Best grilled octopus in playa del Carmen!Authentic Mexican cuisine at a great price. All tostadas were delicious and make sure to try all of the sauces they put on the table.

We had a good dinner meal, portions were generous and the spice level tailored to one's taste. The ceviches were the highlight of the menu, but the individual tacos were excellent also. Good place to stop over while in Playa del Carmen.

This is a great lunch location a bit away from 5th avenue. Nice ann quite neighborhood. Walk around 30th avenue to explore the area. The sauces they offer with all tacos are to die for !! My fav is the tamarindo sauce !!

Discovered this restaurant since the one we wanted to go to was too busy. The food was alright, it did not care towards everyone's needs as most of the food on the menu was fish or seafood. They did have really good Guacamole though! Compared to other restaurants I ate at, this wasn't one of my favourites.

If you love shrimp tacos as much as I do you have to go to Los aguachiles. Everything in the menu is great. I recommend the tuna tostadas, the Popeye shrimp taco and the encamado shrimp taco.

Great food and great prices. Many locals obviously know something good. Very fresh ceviches and fish. The sun tanned octopus is also very good. A bit out of the way of 5 th avenue but well worth it

This is a no frills restaurant not far off the 5th. Start with the cucumber cocktail. Smoky octopus was very good. Order about 3 tacos for dinner. Service was great.
