I have to throw in a recommendation for Captain Bob's on 5th. very small quiet place with incredible service and food. The service far surpassed anyplace we've ever been to in Playa. In addition, it is on the Playa Deal Card with a 20% discount. My date for the nite had a wonderful time and my wife was also very impressed, I think you'll enjoy it as well

Playa Maya News just reported the winner for Best Lobster as Yaxche Restaurant on 8th Street between 5th and 10th Avenue. It is also a very nice place to eat. Inside is rather romantic. Also on the Play deal Card.

Yaxche is where we ate our 25th anniversary dinner in May, 2003. The outdoor garden was great, food great, service great and everything was romantic on that trip.

The lobster fettucine at Il Pescatore (10th Ave around Calle 22, or maybe 24) was very good on Christmas Day. Fewer ambience points than Yaxche, but very nice.

Welcome back Scott and Ron!

There is not a whole lot better than dinner with my hubby, his date or vice versa...LIFE IS GOOD!

Actually Supertrader, by lobster I meant crayfish, rock lobster ;-)

In french we indeed have two different words "langouste" (which is the one I meant) and "homard"

Et de toute façon, ça sera toiujours meilleur que le homard de paris plage !!

You'll be able to find langouste at many restaurants in Playa. But if you want a romantic setting you'll have to pay a little more for the ambiance. I would recommend the Blue Lobster on Calle 12 between 1st and 5th Ave. You must get a table on the 1st floor. They have a waterfall, open air seating like the cafe's in Paris for people watching. You can pick your lobster tail, they'll cook it any way you want. I found it expensive but I liked the whole experience.

Not if you know Scotty...pretty much SOP for him, and the long-suffering L'il G...mostly.
