El Paladante

The Riviera Maya | (984) 871-2233

El Paladante is on the same premises as Don Diego de la Selva, and is a logical choice for vacationers exploring this area of Quintana Roo. Tulum is three quarters of a mile (a kilometer and a half) to the east. Since this is a casual dining option, it's perfect for lazy days on the town.

El Paladante believes in using what nature has provided in order to make your meals. All eggs, vegetable, and honey used in the preparation of the food here was grown or produced organically right on property.


Downtown Playa del Carmen

Located near the middle of downtown Playa del Carmen, Byblos is a logical choice for people thinking about visiting this neighborhood or the surrounding area. Happily identified by tourists as an informal dining option, it's nice when you're not in the mood to get dolled up.

With dishes like risotto, chicken cordon bleu, rabbit, and duck, you are sure to find some quality dish here that you will like. Furthermore, all of the entrees come with fresh bread and olive oil.
