Papa Charly is a small outdoor restaurant (there is a canopy) with EXCELLENT pasta. This was one of my favorite meals in Playa Del Carmen. It is a bit of a walk from the touristy areas by the beach. Don't waste your money on a cab, the area that you have to walk through to get here is a little... More

This little well-kept secret restaurant is unbelievable! It's a very cute little place with a delightful atmosphere. They were playing some light jazz in the background. We went for lunch and were seated immediately. The waiter spoke English and asked if we wanted English or Spanish menus. They have lunch specials everyday which we took advantage of. For 99 pesos...

Great Italian food. It was recommended to us by one of the expats. It's off the beaten path of the 5th Avenue seen but well worth the walk. It had a very nice environment in a quiet neighborhood.

I went here for a group of 10+ and the service and speed of getting our food was excellent. I had the gnocchi and was a little disappointed as they were hard rather than soft. That said everyone else enjoyed their meals.

I ate here twice during my stay in PDC only because I discovered it toward the end of my holiday. From the greeting to the check presentation the experience was fantastic. I had spaghetti arrabbiata and my wife had spaghetti bolognese, both were superb. The kids had carbonara and spinach ricotta ravioli, all consumed enthusiastically - Some take away was... More

I had breakfast here. I kept it simple and ordered the fruit plate with yogurt but everything that came out of the kitchen looked amazing. The service was excellent and everyone that worked there seemed happy, well treated and kindhearted. The lattes are delicious. I spent nearly two hours here and wasn't rushed. This will become a regular place to... More
