Renting a villa for a week in Puerto Aventuras. For the majority of the week, we're planning to cook our own food (pretty nice kitchen). But one night, we'd like to go out to eat somewhere local (Puerto Aventuras or even a few miles south to Akumal), and one night we're playing in Playa de Carmen and want a good place for dinner while we're there.
(1) Restaurant recs in Puerto Aventuras or Akumal
Doesn't need to be fancy (though it can be), just good. Several on the trip are in the restaurant industry on trip—so would definitely prefer authentic over fancied-up-for-Americans.

(3) Best grocery shopping options for the week.
A little nervous about the quality of meat/produce in area and willing to drive a bit to stock up. Any words of wisdom or recommendations?
Thanks in advance!
