Best Restaurant in Playa and the First place we always go for dinner is Romeo Restaurant. Laura Carmine with Terry Carmine, Marcela Leal Morales with our dear Canadian friend, Ed Vidgen
Romeo’s in on Calle 4 between 5th Ave and 10th Ave, a 10 minute walk from any of our condos. Pasta is made fresh when you order it (!) I get Ivan’s (head waiter) favorite, Spinach Ravioli with Truffle sauce or the Grilled Seafood (OMG). Terry always gets Spaghetti Bolognese. We split a Contadina Salad and Marcela and Ed shared Grilled Octopus sliced thin with a little seasoning. Ed also had Gnocchi and Marcela had lobster.
I’ve never tried the pizza, but I hear it’s the best in Playa. I know it’s thin crust and looks delicious.
Telephone 984-141-6507 I definitely recommend a reservation as without one you might wait in line outside for and hour or more. Busiest after 7 pm.
Location Romeo is on 4th Street between 10th Avenue and 15th Avenue on the south end of downtown Playa Del Carmen. Just look for the palapa roof in the middle of the block.
Hours Closed Wednesdays. Open from 4:00pm-11:00pm all other days.
