Babes Noodles & Bar
This popular restaurant is a must while visiting Playa del Carmen! Renowned for its eclectic menu and mile-high margaritas, Babes Noodles & Bar has been at the heart of Playa’s food scene since it opened in 2000.
Enjoy the unique blend of delicious Asian-European cuisine found nowhere else. The menu includes Swedish meatballs with cream sauce and pickled cucumber, as well as fresh fish, seafood, curry dishes and homemade Thai-inspired rice and egg noodles. (All noodle dishes can be prepared vegetarian upon request.) Dishes come in full or half orders. The ambiance is hip, with Moroccan-style lamps and vintage pin-up girl posters. Recently renovated, diners have their choice of large booths accommodating 6-8 people or tables outside on the street front for 2-4.
When you stop by, be sure to try their famous lime margarita. Other flavors include mango, strawberry & blueberry or a fruit blend!
The menu reminds patrons “Everything is Freshly Prepared…Please Be Patient” and the quality of the drinks and dishes is evident! Sauces are made fresh daily and cocktails are made fresh to order. The service is friendly and unhurried.
Babes has engendered a loyal following among the local ex-pats and can get very busy in the evenings. Stop by before 6pm to get prime service. It is open every day of the week except Mondays. It’s conveniently located in the heart of Playa, on Calle 10 between 5th Ave & 10th Ave.
