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

I was here with a group of 8 a few days ago. It's a pretty unassuming place - definitely off the beaten path, but I'm glad we came in. The owner immediately welcomed us -- super fun guy with a very chill vibe. We ordered many of their dishes -- little did I know it was going to be some... More

became very nauseated 3 hours after eating here. Another member of the dinner party who ate the same food I did was sick too. Won't be back. Ate here frequently when the late" Papa Charlie" ran this place last year....

Incredible value, delicious food, reasonable prices. We went to PapaCharly on a recommendation from a friend and went back twice more while in Playa del Carmen. Bring your own wine and sit back and enjoy an incredible meal.

Oh my, Oh my. This is our best find yet in Playa. We started with the Caprese, which was prepared just perfectly and served with bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. My husband had the Chicken Cordon Blue, which I couldn't have made any better, served very hot with mashed potatoes broccoli and carrots. I had Fetuccini Forentina which was... More

We initially went to Papa Charlie for lunch and discovered that the location is run by different people during the day and is known as Cafe Bajo. No worries, my wife and I enjoyed a wonderful three course lunch, including lemonade, watermelon drink and two Sols for less than $20. I definitely recommend going for the lunch combos at either...

Went to PapaCharly's last night for my husband's memories dinner. We were a group of 18. The staff could not have been more attentive and as always the food was delicious. Numerous members of our party had never been before and everyone left raving about the food and the service. A huge thank you goes out to PapaCharly's. This visit... More
