When passion for food and wine meet quality places like Cocotte Cita are born, far from the motherland this french restaurant was one of the highlights of our dining experiences in Playa del Carmen.
I don't even know where to start praising this place.
The atmosphere is intimate, trees separate you from the street and the noise of 5th avenue is far enough to believe yourself wherever you'd like.
We had a french Sauvignon Blanc, not on the menu, just explained what we'd like and he got it exactly right.
Julienne the owner is really passionate about everything related to dining, he talks about the wine, food, everything available with pride and so he should as they make mostly everything from scratch, they grow their own spices and bake their own bread etc. He comes just enough to ask you about your dining experience, not too pushy and he is so french, in the best sense of the word.
I was a bit in trouble as most meals have cheese, so I had the Pork and pancetta salad, but what a salad, the perfect salad, a balanced combination of expected and unforeseen ingredients, pears, who would think about pears in a salad, yummy. Loved it. My friend had the fish main, prepared with some changes she asked for and was taking a minute after each bite. She also appreciated the goat cheese dip served as aperitif, I'm not a cheese eater so couldn't comment. Every piece of our meal was perfect, a continuous high, high, high, no brakes.
For dessert we tried the trio, when undecided go for the trio, it will prove you would have been okay with any choice, Ile flotant, creme brulle and my personal favorite chocolate moelleux, in this order, all perfect.
We had a small misunderstanding related to the bill, but it's also due to our tiredness at that point, besides that it was a perfect last dinner in Playa del Carmen.
