We've been here a couple of times. Last year we had an incident with an allergy scare. Owners were really surprised and concerned. Food was great then. So we went back. We were pleasantly surprised to see the menu was changed to reflect the actual contents in the dishes. Food continues to be great. Staff is helpful, friendly and make... More

Wow, what a fine dinner! This was our first visit to Casa Mediterranea for dinner, based on a recommendation. Food and service were exceptional. This little restaurant is just a few steps off 5th Avenue, and the owners took great care of us. We will be back next year!

We were just walking the shopping district in Playa and came across this place. Tucked off the main shopping area, it was quiet and the service was fantastic. Wine was served slightly cooled which indicates to me they are more serious than most regarding wine service. Food was excellently prepared. Complementary bruschetta and lemoncello were nice touches. Tiramisu was great.... More

We have been to Casa Mediterranea twice before on visits to PDC; and this year's dining experience was every bit as wonderful as we had previously experienced. While we missed Luca - our server in the past who has moved on to another opportunity - our service was just as impeccable as it had been in the past. This is... More

This is a hidden gem! We found this place by accident down an alley off of Fifth Ave in Playa one night and came back for dinner. They only have a few tables and offer homemade pastas and other Italian favorites. They gave us a complimentary brushetta which was very nice. We each had a pasta dish and they were... More

Had dinner here. Tucked away just off 5th. We all had pasta and they were all pretty good. Not brilliant but pretty good. Map is wrong by the way. Good thing we took a cab.

This is not a typical 5:th avenue resturant. This is a cosy family owned resturant located in a beautiful calm garden alley. We ate the mixed sea food plate for two, and it was delicious. This the best sea food we have had in playa del carmen, and we have been here for 10 days!

Excellent authentic Italian restaurant. Small, intimate setting in ornate, artistic lane way (venue of art galleries) just off 5th Avenue. Highly recommend this for romantic or fMilies. Good value and great food.

My husband took me there for dinner to celebrate my birthday. What a lovely and charming restaurant - small and cozy - located just off of 5th Avenue. The food was delicious, beautifully plated, wonderful taste and aromas. The service and atmosphere was great, and we will definitely return the next time we are in Playa Del Carmen.
