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. As far as service and setting, you can expect the formality to be informal. This dining option is on the table during both dinner and lunch, so make time to try it.


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.


Las Delicias is located in downtown Playa del Carmen.

Vacationers can merge their dining experience with local sightseeing possibilities by patronizing one of the many nearby attractions, such as El Faro Lighthouse.

Some active guests say they've come to these parts for a full selection of fun-in-the-sun activities located around this district. Any golfing guests ready to take to the greens can blow off some steam at this restaurant's closest golf facility, Playacar Golf Course. Other types of travelers are content napping on El Faro, which is the most nearby beach and is only a half mile away. Elsewhere in the vicinity, you will encounter one or two more beaches and golf courses, which are equally enjoyable alternatives.
