Given that so many restaurants open and close in Playa, it says a lot that Cocotte Cita is still open 2 years later. It is still the best (and only) French restaurant in town. The menu doesn't change very much, but all of the ingredients are fresh and simply prepared. The terrine appetizer/starter is enough for two people to share.... More

We heard raves from friends so were disappointed with the very average food. Service was ok, but one of our party of 6 was not served until most others were half done and another had an order really botched, so needed to send it back. Place is attractive, the owner is friendly and tries to be accommodating. I might give... More

My wife and I are unabashedly foodies and dining is always something we look forward to when we travel. While we've been coming to Playa for many years, we never expected to find an authentic French bistros here. Our dinner at Cocotte Cita was sheer perfection: wonderful food, excellent service, and a real value. We split a smoked salmon appetizer,... More

The evening temp was cool with a light rain. We arrived and decided to site inside, which has a simple casual ambience. However, whatever was missing in the inside dinning area was balanced by the superior service and food. I had the tagine of couscous and mixed seafood and my wife had the basque chicken. We were not disappointed as... More

This is a nice restaurant that can be very good and is sometimes not. The food can be very good, the service can be very good, but not always. Charming owners and nice ambience

Cocotte Cita Had dinner here and the whole experience was great. Romantic outdoor seating in a jungle like setting with sounds of a water fall beside you. I had the whole fish and it was cooked to perfection and bursting with flavor. The portion was huge. Tons of meat on the fish (red snapper) side salad and fresh homemade pasta... More

Loved the restaurant, not many tables but still it wasn't packed (and, surprisingly, I've never seen it packed during my 10 day vacation), salmon (entradas) was splendid, chicken as a main course was good, loved the vine, postres - chocolate mousse was really good, staff was welcoming, however their USD exchange rate was a literal rip off.

This is a small restaurant with a small menu but what they do they do well. Our waiter was very friendly and guided us through the menu and gave friendly suggestions on what we should try. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back again!

We live in Playa del Carmen and go to Cocotte Cita at least once a week. The owner and the entire staff are so nice and always so welcoming. All the dishes are wonderful and made with fresh ingredients, we have never been disappointed. We have been to many restaurants here and there are very few we would recommend but... More
