We had a memorable dinner here on our last night in Playa. Alberto was our waiter, and Alexander? was the Chef. Both did an excellent job and we all were very pleased. My only regret is that we didn't find this place earlier in our stay.

I can't say enough good things about this Restaurant, the quaintness, the waiters, Lucas and Alberto and the owner Alessandro are so wonderful! We always make it a point to eat here at least once a week when we are in Playa. The Spaghetti Crudiaola is amazing (basil, rosemary, olive oil, grape tomatoes and capers). Their homemade bread is delicious... More

Fabulous food! Homemade pasta, super fresh ingredients, very reasonable pricing and a romantic, quaint setting. We stumbled onto this place by accident and came back the next night for more. It's that good! Highly recommend the ravioli with spinach and mushrooms ... fantastic! Excellent wait-staff. Marco is the best! Thanks for the fantastic service, Marco ...you're a great guy.

After reading the reviews, my husband and I decided to make a reservation for Valentine's Day. We had a 6Pm reservation but we were so hungry so we decided to show up a bit earlier. The place opens at 2Pm, about 30 min earlier we walked in Casa Mediterránea. We've never ever write anything but helpful things. For people trying... More

We ate there for my birthday last week and greatly enjoyed our meal and the wait staff. They were very efficient and funny. Our food was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meal. They brought an extra dessert for my birthday. All around, a very nice evening.

We had the opportunity of dinning at this restaurant during our vacation in Playa del Carmen. Nestled off the main 5th Avenue, this restaurant is welcoming, charming and romantic with its beautiful music. Our waiter Lucas was so kind and happy to serve us. Our entire meal was simply delicious and the wine was quite good. I would recommend this... More

I brought my son here 10+ years ago and returned with my wife last week to be wonderfully surprised that it's still one of the very best places to eat in Playa del Carmen. Thanks for not changing!
