"WE DELIVER EXPERIENCES, SMILES AND MEMORIES"
It was the perfect evening! The food and service were impeccable and the location by the sea was perfect!
Just an exquisite hidden place. Very creative chef who really knows both how to cook and how to present food. Ambitious menu with many options but the preparation of every dish seems to be from scratch. Service is friendly, but “proper”. Pretty beachside location with indoor and outdoor sitting. Well worth the mileage to get there even if your hotel is in Playa del Carmen or near Cancun.
Could not have been better. It was like a night in the luxury of Playa del Carmen of the past. Attentive but unobtrusive service, splendid gastronomy, and unparalleled ambiance in what seems to be a classic home.
Great ambiance, meal, cocktails & service! Roberto, Emilio & Carlos- gracias!
A lovely dinner in a gorgeous setting and fantastic service!
We visited Pavo Real for my wife’s birthday with 3 other couples. The restaurant is part of a small (9 room) boutique hotel.
The food, service and ambience were wonderful. We enjoyed the wine, entrees and dessert.
At no moment did we want for anything.
Our only regret is not dining during the day... the restaurant is on e beach and the views would have been wonderful.
Excelente comida y servició
Beautiful setting, perfect service, excellent food. I can’t think of a single negative word to say about this special place.
Simply amazing. Our second visit here in six years managed to outdo the first!! I would put this up against any single to double star Michelin rated restaurant I’ve been to previously.
Beautiful location but average food. And very overpriced. No other diners there other than us.
We had an amazing time here! The food was spectacular, loved the wine, and the ambiance was perfect.
Always a great experience at Pavo Real. We make a reservation here every time we come here on vacation. The food and service never disappoint. We love coming here.
Unfortunately the restaurant was empty
Such a romantic experience! Our waiter Miguel was amazing and so friendly food was delicious and the ambiance was just as incredible 10/10
It was amazing. Such a romantic setting with wonderful service and food. Exceptional experience
Simplemente 10 / 10. Altamente recomendable, sitio, ambiente, atención y comida ..........uno A. Mil gracias a todos por hacer de la cena un momento muy especial.
You must tell guests that they cannot drive in to the restaurant , but park outside and call the Hotel taxi.
We got thoroughly confused when we were alloed in with no directions, only to come out and have to call the Hotel.
Our first visit to Playa Del Carmen.
This place is truly special. The only criticism is the location is so surreal that it was hard to find. We drove past 3 times. Make it a point to go but ask them for specific directions.
El mejor restaurante 100 puntos!!! 👏👏👏👏
Wonderful restaurant! The service is great and the food!! Oh, my!!! Would love to go back again!! Thanks for great service Manuel.
Ambiente muy romántico con vista espectacular, un servicio personalizado, los platillos exquisitos tanto en presentación como en su sabor. Solicitamos varias cosas para nuestro aniversario, lo cual cumplieron con creces. Definitivamente un lugar para regresar y recomendar. Dueños mexicanos con excelente gusto y atención a los detalles. Felicidades! y muchas gracias a nuestro anfitrión Miguel.
Pavo was our last meal in Mexico for the end of our honeymoon and WOW did it deliver! We started with really creative Mezcal cocktails (Mezcal Manhattan? Yum) Then, after a surprise amuse bouche of chicken satay, we had the mussels and coriander cream soup to start (both amazing). For entrees, I had the seafood pasta (excellent) and my husband had the surf and turf and we both agreed that the filet was one of the best we've ever eaten. They brought us a surprise dessert to help us cap off our honeymoon.
Service was personable and attentive to every detail (one couple was having a beach proposal the same night!); sharing so many stories and background on the region and cuisine. Truly old world charm and elegance; we won't forget our special night.
Everything about Pavo Real is Magical. You need to give yourself some extra time to get to the restaurant since Taxis can’t really go all the way up to the hotel. Then you drive through a jungle to get to this amazing jewel by the beach. The restaurant has about 15 tables. My wife and I went for our anniversary and were treated to an extra special table almost by the sand. Miguel our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and charming. The food was amazing. Right up there with Michelin stared restaurants we’ve been lucky enough to have dined in. The potato soup was a particular stand out in the first course. The rack of lamb I ordered for the main course was also amazing. A perfect medium rare just like I ordered it. Their wine list is also filled with unusual gems. Great Mexican wines from regions other than Baja along with American and European wines from smaller producers. And to top it all off. The prices were incredibly reasonable considering the quantity of the food and the general ambiance. So if you’re in the area and want a special romantic night out, this is the place for you.
There simply not words to describe the setting, and the food and the service are even better than that. If you are wanting to dine on extraordinary food in quiet seaside beauty, there is surely not a better place for that on the Riviera Maya.
Charming, beautiful, and relaxing environment, with outstanding service and cuisine. This was my second visit to Pavo Real, and will be a part of my yearly holiday here on the Riviera Maya.
Food was fresh and fabulous!
El lugar, Ernesto y la comida son las 3 rasones porque regresamos cada vez possible y vamos a regresar el Proximo año.
This is a wonderful place for a special occasion. The setting is beautiful - dining in gardens by the ocean, and the food and service are top-notch. Would highly recommend.
Estaba excelente como cada vez que estaba a Pavo Real
Great location on the beach ... One of the most enjoyable restaurants my wife and I have had the pleasure to dine at ... Food, service and view are incredible .... Look forward to dining there again soon ...
Incredible experience from beginning to end. I felt like James Bond driving up to the villa and being personally greeted by the manager Jan. Perfect spot for a romantic dinner or even a proposal. Views were breathtaking. Hope to come back soon.
We had a wonderful experience at Pavo Real. Beautiful beach setting, lovely drive in through the jungle. Our waiter was most pleasant and helpful but was quite busy with a number of tables and did comp us with a round of Tequila shooters. We had dinners of fish(snapper), steak, and rack of lamb. All were very tasty but the steak and lamb were both more well done than had been expected. The medium steak had no pink and the medium rare lamb was just a touch pink. We had a bonus of watching a next to the water, surrounded by tiki torches, serenaded by Mariachis romantic dinner that looked like something from the Bachelor.
If you are in the area and can afford a nice dinner. Go to the Pavo Real
Went here for Valentine’s Day, what an amazing experience. From first booking until we arrived the owner kept in touch, provided the special menu and made sure we were taken care of. The atmosphere, service and food was perfect. My only complaint is that it was windy that night so the crashing waves and wind was a little distracting, but they offered my wife a shall to keep her warm and we didn’t even notice the wind after a little bit. If we come back again we will definitely eat here again.
We went to Pavo Real by the Sea Sunday a week ago, and I loved it! It was my favorite restaurant in the week that we were there. First, the taxi dropped us at the front entrance to the drive to the beach where you wait before going to the restaurant. Ricardo greeted us at the door and showed me the beautiful garden there with the quiet fountains while waiting for a van to take us to the restaurant. He was incredibly kind and proud of the garden. Then a van took us to the restaurant on the beach where we were met by the waiter in the parking area. Our waiter, Carlos, gave us a choice of tables and recommended drinks. I had a cocktail with a smoky flavor which I am going to try to repeat at home. The view is beautiful, and the meal absolutely fantastic. Service was outstanding. I plan to return to this restaurant every time I am in the area. After our meal, we had a short tour of the beautiful hotel there. The hotel is expensive, but I can see why. It really is lovely.
Love this place, the food, the service, the location! a bit expensive though. We had a great time celebrating my friend's birthday! THANK YOU!
Second time eating here and as usual it was fantastic. Will be back.
One of the really pretty spots in Mexico. Great ambience and food with attentive service.
Beachside views with cool sea breezes.
Absolutely perfect in all aspects
Everything about the night was perfect. From the moment we entered we felt like we were all that mattered. Food was amazing and the views were breathtaking.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
