This is a sweet little restaurant, just in a small alley right on 5th Avenue, although you wouldn't know the hustle and bustle is right by you. The starters were huge and we should have had one between us, but they were really tasty. I made the wrong choice for main, but it wasn't bad, it was just the wrong... More

13 years ago, as part of a wedding party, we first went to Casa Mediterranea. We have visited Playa del Carmen at least 6 times since then. Every time we go we eat at Casa at least 2 times during our stay. We have noticed that other patrons were also return guests. Tucked away in a little courtyard with small... More

10 years ago we found a tiny Italian restaurant in a hidden courtyard. It was so incongruous we decided to try it. It was so good, we brought friends the next night. They also loved it. A few weeks ago we went looking for them again. They are still there. They are still very good, just as friendly as they... More

This restaurant is kinda hidden inside a big square building next to a small boutique hotel and a few galleries. You enter it via a shared entrance. The restaurant is pretty small, giving a very good sense of privacy. Its decor and the area suits perfectly those looking for a romantic dinner. Thanks to its position, most of the noise... More

Grilled fish of the day, we knew it as a hog fish but don't be put off by the name, was surprisingly good. The restuarant called it something else. All in a good restuarant in a great setting just off 5th Avenue.

Fresh, made to order food in a quiet spot tucked in behind noisy 5th Ave. Fresh grilled fish featured the whole fish surrounded by grilled zucchini, rose shaped tomato - beautiful presentation - sorry we forgot our phones so couldn't take a picture. This is our 3rd time there over the years and it's the real deal - they've been... More

This amazing italian restaurant is tucked away from the crazy noise on 5th av. The location is cosy and more quite. The staff made us feel so welcome right away. They were very attentive, helpful and made the time to talk to their customers. The food was fresh, tasty and will satisfy any person that loves italian

No trip is ever complete until we go visit Alessandro at Café Mediterranea. Lucas and his partner are so friendly and attentive to your every need! The pasta is homemade and their sauce is undeniably the best you will experience here in Mexico. We have never had a bad dish there! I would like to also add that their desserts... More

An all around amazing experience. My mom and I were in town for a week, our first meal was so great we stopped in later in the week again for dinner. It is a quiet little Italian restaurant nestled into a courtyard off 5th avenue. Everything from the homemade pasta, to the tiramisu was excellent; and the caesar dressing was... More
