3 days in on my 2nd trip to the area and so far, my favorite spot in Playa del Carmen! The owner is really wonderful and also sells handmade blow glass and stoneware from Guadalajara. We had the delicious mixed plate with 3 different options and the most delicious guava drink. Coming back tomorrow!

Staff speaks English, menu has English in it too. The place doesn't look fancy but the food is amazing! I had the Asada (beef) fajitas and it's the most tender meat I've eaten on my trip, a little too salty eating by itself but if eaten with the tortilla it's perfecion

Staying in downtown Cancun, just got back from a long day in Tulum (mainly sat in a coach picking bozos up from hotels in the middle of nowhere, but that's another review for another day) so I thought I'd have a wander around the area and get a quick dinner Stumbled across Pik-nik hidden away down a back street near...

Tiny and delicious restaurant tucked away in downtown Cancun. The outdoor seating area is tiny (there isn't really a place to dine inside). Free chips and salsa (green is hot and amazing!). We ordered steak and chorizo tacos--steak was flavorful and tender. Chorizo a bit salty. The service was great and many families were dining there. Accessible by the R1... More

Located less than 1000 ft. away from Hotel Kin Mayab, where I was staying, my boyfriend and I decided to walk here on our last night out after seeing the great reviews. This is located in Downtown Cancun, on a street right off of Av. Tulum and not even a block away from Parque de las Palapas. It is a... More

Boy are we glad we did a bit of research on where to eat in Cancun Centro. Pik Nik is right across the street from the R1 bus stop just a stones throw from Ado Bus Station. We had read a review saying it was the best restaurant in Cancun and you know how that goes. You try it out... More

The restaurant is really nice and the food is suprisingly delicious. They have great mexican dishes. The street where th restaurant is is not too attractive but the food will distract you from it. Going for lunch here is great. Pretty quiet and nice.

My mom and I eat lunch here one afternoon on our last day in Playa Del Carmen. If you are looking for clean place to eat with a nice atmosphere this is it. Because it's outside the 5th avenue hustle the prices are much better. We eat the burritos here. Customer service was pleasant.
