A fun place to visit and to eat, with great service. Much more economical owing to its somewhat 'off the beaten track' (i.e. not on 5th Avenue) location.

Enjoyed an early dinner at this long time establishment. Tonight I had their gnocchi with pesto (a huge serving as with all their dishes) but couldn't finish as I had to save room for their well known and delicious carrot cake. Nice service.

Went to Papa Charly's last night for dinner. I ordered the Lasagna Bolognas, it was fantastic. My husband ordered the Cannelloni, very tasty also. The portions are massive and inexpensive. There was a young musician who came to play so we stayed longer and just enjoyed the evening

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

This is a little place everyone needs to go! Barbara gave us great service, the best prices than any on 5th ave. You eat like a king! BYOW for a small fee, 4 adults with entrées cost us something like 65$ for all of us! Will go back every time I visit again. Food is great and trust me we... More
