Great for Dinner (Papa Charlie) and Lunch (Cafe Bajo)

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... read more

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

We have been coming to Playa for many years and have many choices for Italian food. With out a doubt you will find this restaurant outstanding for quality and selection . We stay at the north end of town so it is an easy walk to this location. Two of our group had the canaloni ( chicken and mushroom for... More

Nothing overly complicated about this place. Pick your pasta. Pick your sauce. Best Arrabbiata sauce I've had. I like it spicy, and this didn't fail. Tips: if going for dinner, call for a reservation. We walked up around 6:30 and were able to get a table for 2, but we were the last to get one without a reservation. The... More

One of the best lunches I've had in Playa, and we've been here almost all winter, the food is delicious and the price is even better, we enjoyed a 3 course lunch with an agua fresca included, for 75 pesos each ( it varies from 75-90 pesos). The food is excellent and the ingredients are fresh and wholesome. My starter... More

This is a small place off the beaten trail but to those who find it the food is ECELLENT. and a great value. Everything is fresh made and more than you can eat. My wife had the lasagna and it was more than just really good. It is a small place so do not miss out

PapaCharly was situated opposite to our flat so finally we had to visit it. It`s a cosy place with a few tables and nice atmosphere. Firstly I came there for a lunch. I`ve ordered a chicken in a white wine sauce and watermelon juice. Tasty meal and plate was looking great so I knew I have to come back with... More
