Great view, underwhelming food

Purchased a lot of dishes since we came starving. What was likely to be the highlight, the ribeye, was inedible and hard to chew. The appetizers were fairly great though. The cocktails were fantastic. Way overpriced for what you get though. Nice views over the course of the day.

Restaurant located within the grand hyatt. Went with my wife and 3 and 2 year olds and was really satisfied with the especially accommodating and attentive support. We had the tuna tartare starter that was not in any way special. For the primary people had the prime New York strip that was fantastic, in addition to a salad. The decoration and distance are somewhat underwhelming and lack character – in the entry you walk beyond a tacky lit Xmas tree, along with an awkward pair of sofa chairs decorated in a blue fluorescent lighting. The main hall of this restaurant has dividers adorned with fine reddish wall plants along with 4 spacious comfortable oval tables (probably the top tables). Then there are a couple of tables inside of a few glass doors that feel as though they are a part of another restaurant. I’d recommend for supper if you want meat and have loads of times in Playa for additional more unique culinary and sensory experiences. If you’re celebrating a special event and are interested in great ambiance at a chic or comfy setting, then I’d look elsewhere.

Whether you arrive a few days or several weeks, Playa del Carmen is definitely the place. Your family and friends will love it. The spots to meet are beautiful. It will be an experience you will never forget. PDC is a beautiful place. The hotels, restaurants, and water activities. Everything has something different to show you. Restaurant The Grill is a gem in Playa del Carmen.¬†During our dinner, the waiter recommended the bottom fishing in cozumel mexico tour¬†– near to Playa del Carmen. I’ll take a look at it. So, this restaurant is at the top of my favorite spots on the island. It is exquisite, lovely, and has a pleasant atmosphere.

The restaurant was totally empty but they welcomed us directly in. Our host Rodrigo was amazing. He was at the top of each tiny detail. We ordered the chef’s specials from sausage and what they served was yummy. There was a bone marrow appetizer that’s something we normally would not eat but that has been so excellent. The restaurant is amazing and the service was exceptional. If you’re in the area we highly recommend you stop by here to get a meal that is spectacular!

We went to the restaurant on December 2nd roughly an hour before closing and we figured we would hurry to purchase, eat, and then rush out. To our surprise that the team did not rush us. They have been welcoming and treated us like we had all the time in the entire world. Everything was decadent and created absolutely. Our waiter Rufino amazed me with a birthday cake. It had been so sweet and considerate. The beverages were also very great. I really like a nicely balanced specialty cocktail and they didn’t disappoint. Would definitely return.

We’ve been to Grand hyatt PlayaCar many times, but that was our first trip to The grill at 1 26, also we highly recommend it. Their support was exceptional, they brought ours 12 month girl a little bowl of soup and have been very attentive to their own needs. We had the special of Night” Tuetano, Tomahawk beef, wine,and dessert, the food has been cooked to perfection.

This really is a superb decision to change up things in Playa del Carmen and also have a pleasant 5 star meal. We came at Sunset and sat out, and the view was magnificent. The wagyu sliders were beautifully ready, we had new crab legs along with a delicious Tomahawk beef. Later, we stayed to have some drinks at the bar, the bartender from Colombia was quite friendly and gifted; we had good cocktails. Enjoy!


I can’t get enough of the place! The food, the service, the ambiance is ALWAYS top notch. We visited for the first time in June 2018 and have gone back 4x’s since and most recently on 10/08/18 for my own birthday. Thank one of the grill for being absolutely wonderful. Thank you Ricardo for awaiting us. We will return next year.
