ArtHumus is not just a restaurant/winebar/organic market/cafe. It is more!

ArtHumus Playa Del Carmen

Welcome to ArtHumus

ArtHumus Restaurant (plus more) is a new and welcome addition to Playa Del Carmen. It is a concept of the husband and wife team of David and Ana Paula. They brought their passions of sustainability, healthy food, French cuisine, slow food cooking and love of sharing with like minded people to Playa. They moved from France because they liked the area and now want to be an integral part of the community.

ArtHumus is not just a restaurant. It is a wine bar, café, art space, organic market for both food and items, plus just an overall nice place to come and enjoy the experience. Here is more about all aspects of ArtHumus.

The space and atmosphere

There are four areas of ArtHumus where you can dine. There is the front and back patio where you can dine al fresco. Inside the café there are a few tables in front of the wine bar. Also there is a back room which is a comfortable space with books and library feel.

Wine Bar

ArtHumus is a place you can come and enjoy some wines. Organic wines are their specialty. They have many organic wines they import from France.  You can also find wines from Spain, Australia, California, and Argentina.

ArtHumus makes for a good place to go have a glass of wine because of the quieter setting and the many small plates you can accompany your wine with. There are actually few places in Playa Del Carmen where you can just go and enjoy some wine. Since they have this nice selection of wine and the bar, we are adding them to the Bar Guide for Playa Del Carmen.
