My wife and I dined here last night and were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. we had the mixed Terrine and duck confit -- both were fresh, well presented and delicious. The wine list is also quite good, however, I'd agree with a previous reviewer that some of the bottles have been opened for too long. Ask... More

Returned here again after trying it twice last year. Still recommend this Resto for good French food in Playa. Fresh food and great service at a reasonable price.

I made a reservation to celebrate a special ocassion, the day of the dinner they never acknowledged this. Nevertheless, Luis, the waiter, was very kind and warm, although he gave us unnecessary explanations of providers and costs we didn't ask for, as locals, maybe he thought we would find it very expensive. Once we received the plates (after some other... More

We have eaten at this restaurant on previous trips, and have been delighted. We were a bit trepidous to find that the ownership had changed but our fears were allayed upon learning the chef is the same. The food and the service remain delicious and impeccable. The duck is the best! Also, do not miss the desert (any of them).... More

As a local it's great to find such a nice place, attention and quality of food. We just reserved our family Christmas dinner here!

I had the opportunity of attendance twice in my last trip to Playa, and I can say that the food and the service are excellent. I highly recommend the Soft Steak with Rosemary Potatoes and the egg en cocotte with foie. The service and chefs are great and really kind. The kitchen smell is delicious... I'm waitin to go back...

This might have been the worst dining experience on our trip to Playa. I was served cheap wine that tasted like it had been opened for a couple of days. When our entrees arrived, the order was completely screwed up. The food is o.k. but not up to French standards. I did not see any French people working in the... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Cocotte Cita this past weekend. After a warm welcome from the owner and our server we settled in on the tropical patio with a cocktail while perusing the chalkboard menu and enjoying an amuse bouche. We decided on the Cold Spinach Soup, Egg in cocotte with foie, Escargot, Duck Confit, and Filet Mignon. Everything... More

This is an excellent place! A real French restaurant just off 5th Avenue. My fish was delicious fresh and local, seasoned with herbs they grow on site. The wine list was clearly carefully chosen to pair with the menu. The staff were expert in the kind of relaxed French table service that made us feel at home for a long... More
