If you had a Mexican grandmother prepare you a meal, the food she served you would taste something akin to what you'll find at Las Delicias in Playa del Carmen. Run by a 100 percent Mexican family, the restaurant was born in 2000 with the dream of sharing their identity with the world.

Las Delicias

You won't find a more authentically Mexican menu than what they have at Las Delicias. Top-sellers include Molcajete Azteca, Mole Poblano, Chicken on Cranberry Sauce, Caribbean Seafood Grill, Las Delicias Grill, Lobster, and Chicken Breast in Agave Honey and Lime.

Las Delicias is a grill that offers Caribbean and Mexican cuisines, as well as chicken. The style of the restaurant and its dishes is considered by most to be informal. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy both dinner and lunch, so consider giving it a try one day.


The restaurant is split into three different areas. The first is the traditional Caribbean living area, under a great palapa, The second is the Mexican area that features pictures of important eras in history, and finally, the garden with Mexican crafts and vegetation of the region and Mexican music playing in the background. Without just 20 tables throughout, it has an intimate feel.
