Como Como Osteria Mediterranea
Como Como has become my favorite restaurant of the moment; the place I proudly share with family and friends when they visit Playa del Carmen. Have you tried it yet? It’s not far from your downtown condo!
A friend recently reacquainted me with this great little restaurant and we enjoyed a spectacular breakfast. I’m a bit of a coffee snob, so I was really happily surprised that the coffee was excellent! Fresh bread arrived before our eggs, and everything was delicious. To all your early bird coffee drinkers out there, take note of this place.
This award-winning restaurant serves up delicious seafood, steak and homemade pasta at affordable prices. There’s an extensive wine list as well, to complement the delightful Mediterranean menu. It’s open from 7am to 11:30pm; serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
It’s hard to say which meal is best, as they’re all amazing! The lunch-size beef filet with red wine reduction was sensational—probably the best steak I’ve ever had in Playa. Everything is creatively presented, and the service is friendly and efficient. (Another rarity for Playa!) This is also an ideal choice for a romantic dinner in a beautiful setting. I recommend even just stopping in for a cocktail or dessert and coffee.
Located on 10th avenue between 12 and 14 streets (near the Quinta Alegria Mall), Como Como is a charming and romantic spot you’ll love to visit again and again!
