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

My wife, our daughter (12) and I dined at Cocotte Cita a couple of nights ago and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We did quite a bit of research on tripadvisor before our trip and chose Cocotte based on the number of excellent reviews. They didn't lie! The restaurant is located on a quiet street, about... More

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
