We were staying at the Paradisus Esmerelda hotel and had only moderate hopes for this restaurant. The dining room is grand, and feels somehow more rap video than michelin star. The service is very over the top but they do it with such gusto that...More

We made reservation by phone for my birthday. After a short taxi ride, we got to the resort entrance (make sure you have at least 1 ID, since you will need it). We were greeted by lobby manager and escorted to the restaraunt. The ambiance...More

What a great evening - surprising us both, as we are vegan and do not drink. The staff brought us 3 menus: the conventional one, a vegetarian one and a vegan one. So, we had plenty to choose from. And did they perform! The food...More

Don't be fooled, although the 9 course meal comes in small portions. By the end you will feel like your about to explode! It was amazing and not expensive at all.... at least coming from New York City.

Can't fault this place at all from the staff to the level of service and of course the food. We had the tasting menu with pairing drinks and 2 espresso martinis to finish which came to about £300 GBP which is around 7200 pesos (tip...More

If you want to try out some of the best food in all of Playa, go to Passions! It's open to the public, so you can go no matter what hotel you're staying. It was worth every penny!

Buy some nice wine /champagne and enjoy whatever is on the menu. Its all great.
Hi, We are staying at La Perla at the end of this month in a junior suite; we do not have "royal service". What is the cost of the tasting menu at this restaurant, and what is the average cost of mains on the regular menu? The website menu says 225 Euros, which seems outrageously expensive (even for a Michelin star restaurant) and I'm unclear why prices are listed in Euros. I'm wondering if this is the menu to their restaurant in Spain rather than the one in Mexico. Please advise on the cost or let me know who I can contact. Thanks, Sandy

Sandy, We stayed with Royal Service so the cost for us was just US$75. It was easily the very best dining experience of my entire life (71 years). Would I pay 225 Euros? Hard to say if I had not ever done it before. But... More

Is the La Palapa restaurant only for Royal Service? We will be visiting the resort in April with my husbands company, but we will also be celebrating our 37th anniversary and my 60th bday. How can we see, in advance, the resorts menus? Also wondering about the Passion restaurant. We would love to see the menus in English. Since we would probably need to make a reservation before we arrive for our anniversary dinner...this would be helpful! Thank you!
