This restaurant belongs to a cluster of new restaurants that have risen in this northern section of Playa Del Carmen. It’s one of the hidden treasures of this area. If you’re looking for a quiet and romantic place, then Origenes is worth it.
Locals and visitors love eating here because the food is traditionally and exceptionally Mexican. It’s homemade and very tasty. Everyone seems to love the lime soup, so we suggest you give that a try as well. Some appetizers are different specialty every night, but the most popular is its Tuna Starter, which is definitely to die for.
The main course offers plenty of exotic and fusion choices, where every ingredient is always fresh. And although these are homemade food, they taste like exquisite gourmet dishes. The traditional ceviche come highly recommended, as well as its beef brisket and ravioli. But the most popular dish is its shrimp taco which is presented really well and tastes just as good as it looks.
The owner explains food here is prepared very early so that flavors seep in. The dishes are all part of family recipe that has been handed down for years. Food portions are big.
The restaurant plays good live music, one that is not loud that it would give you a headache and not boring that it will put you to sleep. It’s the perfect place to unwind and have a night cap with your loved ones and friends
The owner is always present and enthusiastically greets all the guests that come in. Dining in this restaurant feels really homey but the elegant touch makes one feel privileged. The staff is friendly and service is also top-notch.
