We had dinner at Imprevist again this year. This is my favorite restaurant in Playa. The food is exceptional. It's small so go early or make a reservation. It's worth making the effort.

The breakfast was wonderful, our waiter recommended that I try something "Mexican" haha so I took his recommendation & it was phenomenal. The end of our breakfast came & we got the bill for 2 of us only $24 usd. For all that you get we couldn't believe it! We will definitely be back! This is right off 5th avenue... More

I was drawn by the menu. Some Asian and some Mediteranean dishes. I have to say that this was an experience I will remember. Excellent food from the complimentary starter through the main course. Extremely serviceminded staff. I really recommend this place.

We can only add our compliments to the other reviews from January and February 2017. We visited twice during our stay in February and were even "squeezed in" on Valentine's Day when reservations were tight. The food is worth the wait for sure.

When a chef takes ordinary ingredients, a Ribeye or a piece of grouper, or the belly of a pig and makes them extraordinary, I wonder at the skill it requires and am amazed. My wife and I ventured out to Imprevist for our anniversary based largely on other reviews and the chef's write-up on their TA listing, we were not... More

If you can grab a seat outside it is worth it. Watching people walk by and the cute boutique stores opening. Great value for money. Service was immense and our waiter was very profesional. We ordered the select menú which was a set price. We just had to ask fo the juice though. The small sweet breads are a nice... More

This was a "just ok" restaurant. Our table was not ready for the reservation. The "mixed" international and Asian cuisines didn't make sense. The service was largely terrible with us having to wait 40 minutes before we could even order a drink. The food was just ok. Small portions, and unremarkable delivery. I would probably not go again.

We were looking for something different for dinner and booked a reservation here after reading the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. It's one block off 5th Ave towards the beach on a quiet little through street. There is seating on the outside but also inside down 5-6 steps below level. There were only about 10 tables inside...
