Default Playa Resturants - Yaxche Mayan, La Cueva Del Chango, other?

Hi all
Have been doing some research on Playa Del Carmen. We are looking for a very cool restaurant where we could take family and friends for lunch that really has that WOW factor (beautiful tropical setting, etc).

So far I found 2 really great sounding places:
- La Cueva Del Chango
- Yaxche Mayan Cuisine

Anyone been to either one? Did it have that wow factor?

Any other places in or around Playa Del Carmen that I should think about?

Thanks, Carla

Yaxche is really special, one of the only Mayan cuisine restaurants just off the 5th avenue...also check out the "Restaurante" on calle 26th with 5th avenue, great Italian food, very different from other restaurants since they import their ingredients...a must...check out Los Aluxes...a restaurant in a cave...takes a 5 min taxi drive but might be worth it...anotherone for good steaks and meat cuts from the grill (simple restaurant but meat is from north of Mexico...really really good!) is "Las Carnes CH"...on calle 1 sur with 10th street....or a typical Yucatecan restaurant you find on Corner Juarez with Federal street....great great food, a taste of local atmosphere...clean and safe...good luck!

Is the building/grounds amazing or is it just the food that is special. Really want them to walk in be WOWed by the food and atmosphere.

Los Aluxes is only open for dinner so not really an option when coming into port in Cozumel.

Do you have any idea of the rough price ranges for the restaurants you suggested? Thanks, Carla
