Girlfriend said it was the best lobster of her life. It was very big mind you pay by the size. I had a shrimp pasta dish that was very tasty.

We are not big eaters, so a big expensive meal we leave half of is not an option. Here, you can Ask for the small house special. It was perfect, an appetizer, small lobster tail with veggies and small ice cream dessert. Never any deals on wine anywhere in Playa! So just order a bottle of a nice Australian wine... More

We re-visited the Blue Lobster House twice on this last visit and they never disappoint! They will bring out various sized lobster tails on a platter for you to choose (price is based on weight). My husband chose the 1 1/2 pound tail and it was done to perfection, as was my 1 pound tail. Served with a variety of... More

We went to Blue Lobster on a weeknight. Service was great and it was nice to sit outside and feel the breeze off the water. The cerviche was OK, I didn't think it was great, but overall a good meal at a reasonable price.

Ran across the Blue Lobster on a ten best list and thought it sounded good. We visited on a Sunday night and they were not very busy when we arrived. Everything about the night was just a little bit off. Our server greeted us promptly but then mixed up our bottle of wine and took forever to come back with... More

Service was good as well. We had a nice clean table. Marina was our server, seek her out. Nice little quite... More

In July 1996 Blue lobster opens in Playa del Carmen to become a favorite of locals and tourists to enjoy a delicious lobster, fish and seafood. Built with tropical wood, stone slab, thatched roofs and waterfalls that give an extra relaxation touch. We always try to satisfied and exceed our customers’ expectations. Excellent food, polite waiters and a fantastic view of the fifth Avenue will make you spend an unforgettable night.We have capacity for 130 persons on two levels and an air conditioning area to 22. Blue lobster makes a compromising bet on mexican wine and regional sea dishes that result in a perfect union. They have created perfect unions for their wines’ selection through a very special menu that proposes the perfect combination between their gastronomy and their wines. As three dishes’ menu with different wine suggestions in order to please every palate: reds, whites, roses and foamy wines.
