Was introdused to the place by friends.
We had lunch together the day after we attended a wedding.
My friends had burritos and I had a taco, one of the best in Playa.
Portions were huge, we barely finished our food.
Went there again the next day to have the best ceviche I have ever had, and I have tried quite a few.
Waiters and owner were friendly and made me feel at home.
All in all had 3 visits there during one week of my stay.

Will surely be back

Great Mexican breakfast and the homemade drinks were really nice.

We tried a slew of items and they were all really good.

I was entranced by all the decorations upstairs, it is quite beautiful.

False advertising of so called 2x1 Piña Coladas that are in reality one.
Hostile service. When asking for explanation only excuses and telling we “misenterpreted” it...
AVOID!!!

We had 6 in our party and ate dinner at Tropical. We sat outside to soak in the 5th avenue street vibe, but the upstairs seating is also special with all of the decorations. Our bill for 6 and drinks for everyone was about $120 USD. This is reasonable compared to the high prices we were paying at our Riviera Maya resort. The food is very good and they had a few nice touches with some authentic Mayan dishes on the menu. However most of the menu is Mexican based. I tried the Mayan "Chaya" soup and it was delicious. This is a vegetable that I can only describe as a like a cross between spinach and broccoli. Service was also excellent.
