We were looking for a delicious breakfast and we found it at Imprevist, along the street close to a pewter & ceramics shop that we love. Presentation of the food was wonderful. I really loved my buckwheat/multi-grain pancakes with fruit. My husband loved his smoked salmon on bagel. The small muffins brought out first were great - chocolate and other... More

I stayed right next door to this establishment while in Playa so I literally ate breakfast here every day expect for one. You can expect fresh fruit, honey granola, coffee and juice, delicious breads / pancakes and egg entree selections. I recommend the Egg's Benedict, Spinach Bacon and Leek Omelette or the Tomato, Spinach and Chorizo Omelette. My husband basically... More

This is truly a hidden GEM in Playa Del Carmen. Family recommended the restaurant which is a bit off the beaten path of 5th Avenue but by only one block. It was as the title suggests an exquisite dining experience. Our serving staff were extremely accommodating with a strong command of english. The descriptions of food preparations were accurate providing... More

We started off sharing the octopus which was the BEST we have ever tasted and the pork belly with scallops both delicious. For mains we had... More

The service is consistent and friendly. The food is good....not amazing, but good. We dropped in a few times for breakfast, and the fresh fruit and juices were fantastic. Try the Chia leaf juice....a little tart, but really good. The pan dulce was a nice change from the overly sugary American sweet breads (i.e. Cinnabon, donuts, etc) that we've become... More
