We arrived for dinner, the first of several couples to be seated. We watched as four other tables were served their entrees before us. When we asked if there was a problem in the kitchen, both the waiter and the waitress acted as if there was nothing wrong, dismissing our question. The waitress spent more time socializing with a friend... More

We've been in Playa for two months and this is without a doubt our favorite lunch spot. Not only is everything we've tried delicious, but it is also super affordable. The lunch specials are 89 and 99 pesos! You get their agua of the day infused with fresh fruit juice, your choice of salad, an entree, and desert! We've had... More

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...
