Catch - Thompson Playa del Carmen
Al llegar a Catch nos dijeron que había un evento y nos mandaron a otro Restaurant que “nada que ver”. Supuestamente el mismo menú pero súper reducido, la langosta muy mala!!!
food was good but there was no one there. vibe was a little weird and the view is not that great. save your money or go to the one in NYC. I’m sure it’s a fun place when there’s a lot of people but felt off when we were there.
The food and service was excellent.
The night would have been absolutely perfect had we been told half the restaurant was closed for renovations. It took away the magnitude of the essence of being there.
The view from the rooftop is spectacular when completely operational.
Overall. Good time. Good fun. Can’t wait to come back for the big reveal.
We were very pleased with our choice to eat at Catch! Great service, food and ambiance!
Noe our waiter was outstanding and made sure that each of the guests were comfortable . Friendly and revered is from last year
Ask for him , a smile always on his face
De última hora nos cambiaron al Thompson by the beach por que tuvieron evento privado, debido a esto nos tuvieron esperando 1 hora y media antes de atendernos, después de esto todo muy mal. Experiencia agridulce.
Oscar was a wonderful server - so attentive and helpful! The food and ambiance was perfect. We even got to see another sweet couple get engaged there that night! Awesome experience :)
Amazing experience on our vacation with friends and family. just a great atmosphere and great view. Food is really good and service is excellent. Not cheap, but worth it.
La comida comparada con la del Catch sucursal NYC deja mucho que desear.
Estuvimos esperando 10 minutos desde que llegamos que alguien nos ofreciera algo de tomar (por que preguntamos quien sería el mesero que nos iba a atender).
Amazing restaurant. Lovely setting to see the sunset. We went for dinner at sunset and it was quite quiet but nice to see the view before the sunset and after. The sun does not set directly in front of the restaurant. Food was amazing, really good. Ceviche was the best, and the simple cooked tuna medium was perfect.
The NYC Catch restaurant has slightly better food preparation and better service (partly due to language barriers). Still, we had a great dinner overlooking the ocean.
Good food, nice decor, fun music- wasn’t busy when we went, but imagine would have great atmosphere when packed
The food was just ok. The restaurant was pretty empty. View is amazing. Ambiance is very nice. Terrible wine selection.
This place is in an upscale hotel and hard to find from the street. We were there early for Mexico, just after 8pm and the music was already pumping out techno! It’s a ‘shared plates’ place. The king crab roll was a surprise (not a Sushi type at all) but delicious; the other rolls were odd (and fried), the fresh shrimp cocktail was fine, the tacos were a big disappointment, lacking any flair and very greasy. While we didn’t like the music volume, lots did as the place filled up with mostly younger tourists. We had a good bottle of well priced Mexican wine and refreshing sparking water. The price was reasonable for a fancy place just off the packed Main Street, (5th), but I suspect there is far better seafood elsewhere in Playa.
Incredible food, ambiance and service. At half the price of the locations in New York or Los Angeles! Highly recommend coming here atleast once during your stay in playa.
The ambiance was amazing. The breeze was a delight. Our food was fresh and cooked as requested. Our server went over and above
Our server was great! Everyone took care of us, can’t wait to come back!
Great service - very accommodating for our two toddlers
I had the worst experience at Catch and would never return. The food was incredibly mediocre at best and the worst part about the experience was that we waited over AN HOUR AND 1/2 for our 3 side dishes which were just a variety of their grilled vegetable plates. Our meals were served at separate times with about 15 minutes in between so that my husband and I did not eat at the same time. My grilled shrimp were oily and tasteless and they forgot the sauces I had ordered on the side. We also ordered everything without scallions only to find our meals were covered in them! We had to keep asking repeatedly for items from all these waitpeople who were running around frantically. To make matters worse, the music was very loud and we could not even hear each other. Oh, and from the get-go, we were directed to the restaurant by a variety of different people with no cohesion or feeling of where to go, etc. They've got a great name from a marketing standpoint, but they'll never Catch this lady again!
Terrible service. Couple doing drugs in the bathroom. Extremely loud. Food not cooked properly. Worst restaurant I’ve been to in Playa Del Carmen.
Catch 22 is our absolute favourite restaurant when we visit Playa del Carmen. The ambiance and view is spectacular, men selection and quality is outstanding. Great value for such a trendy rooftop experience!
Service was excellent and the atmosphere was great. It is perfect if you like raw fish and meals on that are a little exotic. We were a party of 3 and 2 liked the food and 1 did not.
Muy buen lugar y ambiente agradable el servicio de lo mejor . La comida muy buena , solo prepárense con al cuenta por qué no es barato , ideal para una ocasión espacial
Fantastic evening experience - same as we had a year ago! Delicious food.
Went to Catch for dinner - last evening of our honeymoon. We ordered the lobster which was absolutely outstanding! Never had it prepared in such a ginger sauce - it was too die for!
Service was top! Server brought us 2 glasses of champagne for our celebration just because I had made a brief comment on opentable asking for a special table for the occasion. Fantastic experience!
The waiters are trying their best but over do this a bit. Every 2 minutes another one asks if all is ok. Bit too often. But very friendly though. It would not keep me away.
¡Muchas gracias por todo! Con el apoyo del staff, la pedida de mano a mi novia estuvo excelente. El servicio y las instalaciones de primera, la comida muy rica... en general, todo amerita la mejor calificación.
Sin duda recomendaremos el Catch y regresaremos en nuestras próximas visitas a Playa del Carmen.
Catch has an amazing location in the heart of 5th ave . It is located above street level overlooking the ocean. The food is fresh , one of the best meals we ate in playa del Carmen . The service is impeccable. Oscar is amazing at his job making many suggestions on what to order. He does a fantastic job, very friendly . We would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family . We will be sure to return when we come back.
We love this place! Been there 3 times in 3 days!
The food is tasty, service is kindly, music is great and the view is perfect.
Fun birthda celebration! Staff was great and really made it special!
Food was amazing. Service great too. We let the waiter chose the plates fornus and they were absolutly outstanding.
Always a great experience however this time this loud music started much too early and hindered good conversation. Don’t know why we need Club music during the dinner hour??
Más que excelente la atención de nuestro mesero Oscar!!! Súper atento, amable, excelente humor!!! Tuvimos que caminar un poco más pues por el momento cambiaron el restaurant al Thompson Beach House y el gerente súper atento nos dio de cortesía dos bebidas de espumoso! Me encanto la atención y la Locación!!! Súper recomendable!!!
Made a reservation to Catch and showed up at the location at the Thompson hotel only to be turned away by the guys at the door who said that Catch was under construction and moved to a beach bar several blocks away. We trekked to the pop up location and found an unmanned host stand labeled Catch. We stood around awkwardly and then gave up and wandered down the Frida Kahlo alley where someone asked us if we were looking for Catch. We were escorted down a dark empty street and onto the restaurant premises - it was literally a wooden deck with turquoise chairs and pillows in high speed winds. Really disappointed that no one told us the location was under construction, no one gave us the directions, and we were rushed to run to an outdoor shack experience we didn't want. The restaurant was completely empty and the wind was blowing so hard all the palm trees were bent. It really ruined our night as we had plans to have a nice, fancy dinner with several courses and a bottle of wine but instead we got an overpriced Joe's Crab Shack experience.
Literally had the restaurant let us know that they weren't open, we would not have gone. The pop up location several blocks away with only outdoor seating was so disappointing. It is obvious Catch didn't disclose this because they're greedy and wanted to make a buck. Sad excuse for a "nice" restaurant, don't waste your time or money.
Everything was perfect, the personal on the restaurant was nothing but the kindest people!
Great service from the staff. Food is amazing. Views are breathtaking
