Food and service... el perfecto!

It is one of those places that you go to, without really knowing what to expect. Of course, after reading all those raving reviews, you have a pretty good feeling about your choice but... Well hey... it doesen't take a minute that the incredibly "good vibe" server comes and great you. All you want... read more

Service was excellent as usual in Mexican restaurants, however the food is not really great and it is actually overpriced. I had high expectations from this place because I read only good reviews so when I went I realized that the food was really not that good. Everything was soaked, drenched in cheesse so I guess for many people this... More

I love Italian food in PDC. We went to Papa Charlies on 07/18/15 for the first time. My husband ordered green pasta with seafood sauce. Mine was simple pomodoro, and spinach ravioli for our son. Everything was great. I have hard time to find descent pasta in the US but Papa Charlies offer what I want. The servers were very... More

The place is known as a good restaurant for dinner and yes it is really good. But guys go and check the breakfast it is on the same level and the prices are really low. The service is maybe not the most professional one but they are really friendly!!! GO AND CHECK IT OUT

We are in Playa twice a year and always stop by Papa's for dinner. This trip we had the pleasant surprise of having both fish and chicken added to their menu. Hubby had his favorite Lasagna Bolognese and my friend and I split the Spinach Fettuccini with Arrabbiata sauce and the Rolled Fish and vegetables! Everything was outstanding!, Do yourself... More

We went tonight on our last night in Playa Del Carmen for my son's 12th birthday and had a wonderful evening. The food is awesome, the ambience wonderful and the owners are so friendly. Although a little off the path it is in a very nice neighborhood and well worth the walk or a cab ride. The prices are more... More

My boyfriend and I recently returned from a week in PDC. We were told by our shuttle driver and a guy we met our first night to go to Pap Charly if we wanted really good pasta. Luckily, it was less than a 2 minute walk from where we were staying. We checked it out the 2nd night of our... More

4 adults and 2 kids (1 in a high chair) spent a evening with PapaCharly and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly, the service was great and the pasta was excellent. Big portions (you could split one between two people) and the fact that you could bring in your wine, made the evening even more enjoyable! Definitely worth... More
