I had a gentleman tell me about this place on a lazy river and we were on a mission to get there for the rest of the time in Mexico. We were not disappointed at all! Everything was amazing from the drinks to the food...to the excellent service! Everyone and everything was GREAT!More

This spot came HIGHLY recommended and it did not disappoint! The food was AMAZING! The waitstaff were all great. Our group ordered the jerk tacos, rasta pasta, and beef patties. Oh, and I almost forgot the rice and peas!!! A bit spicy, but was so...flavorful. The chef came out to learn about the guests in the restaurant. Make a reservation using whatsapp, they are cash only no credit cards accepted.More

After eating here 3 consecutive nights I think we can say it's one of out favorites. The food is wonderful and the service even better. My favorite is the jerk tacos. Its on the starters menu but they're clearly a meal. Make a reservation

We were in Playa Del Carmen for 1 week! We had all you can eat food and restaurants at our hotel but we decided to try Rockas right next to our hotel! Let me tell You this was the best food we have had in...Mexico! We are there twice in that week! We had the Rasta Pasta, shrimp appetizer, plantains, macaroni and cheese and all of it was amazing! Stephanie and chef Marvin are amazing hosts! They are a husband and wife team and together they have a great establishment! Can’t wait to go back!More

This was a spectacular visit. The food was delicious, service was impeccable and the drinks were strong. The chef came out and chatted with us and the hostess was so warm and accommodating. We can't wait to return!

Just as everyone else says the food is outstanding! We tried a little bit of most everything. Everything was on point but the chicken was the bomb. I mean as good ad it gets, felt like I was back in Jamaica and not Mexico. The...staff is fantastic as well, it was enjoyable talking with everyone when we were there. Blessings to you all and thank you for your hard work! We will be back in a few days for certain.More
