We had four amazing meals at this wonderful place. Our first was a Friday night for their grilled specials. I got a lobster that was the best I have ever tasted with a citrus dip that took it over the top. My partner got the...grilled sea bass & it could not have been better. Ms Margarita served us at the bar with impeccable service including a beautiful mezcal presentation. We went back the next week and ordered the red snapper. Perfection! Be sure to make a reservation. You will love it!More

I went to Ictio twice during my five day stay in Playa del Carmen and both times it was phenomenal! I got the shrimp ceviche, fish tacos, and shrimp skewers to munch on and the Flor de Jamaica cocktail ending with some churros and it...was all so delicious and so fresh! The staff - Benjamin and Margarita - were wonderful too! Thank you all for such great food and a pleasant atmosphere! If I visit PDC again, I will definitely eat here several times!More

We’re so happy we found! The octopus and jumbo shrimp were delicious, the craft cocktails were also excellent! The service was friendly, our waiter Benjamin was fantastic. I highly recommend Ictio, oh and definitely try the house charales (tiny, seasoned dehydrated fish)!

OMG!! We were hungry or hangry, a little annoyed trying to find a place to eat, ended up here and were MIND BLOWED!! I'm a total foody, and my husband is Mexican, so though crowd, but we are in love!! The menu is small, great...sign, I was sceptic, but EVERY thing we tried was just absolutely AMAZING!! The service is even better(if possible), normal, cool, down to earth people. The chef, soooo great and a cool guy that came out to talk to us. Couldn't be happier, food heaven, this place deserves Michelin stars. A super down to earth, cool, amazing gem, not stiff and boring and over priced. So price wise, you get EXTREMELY much for your money! And they have artisan beer and GREAT gin and tonic, and probably all the drinks are equally amazing! Thanks so much Benjamin, for your amazing service!! :D And Demian, you are the best chef EVER!! THANKS so much for the best meal EVER!! :DMore

If you are in Playa del Carmen, this restaurant is a MUST VISIT! We do not like/eat any oil and all ordered food came without! We had as a starter a ceviche which was amazing. As a main course we ordered salmon, jumbo prawns and...octopus. The Fish is fresh and from highest quality. The coconut rice is simply amazing!!! The service (Benjamin & team) was great! We will visit this restaurant for sure a few times more during our vacation in Playa del Carmen.More
