You can order off the menu as well but the main plates are around 80-90 pesos so you are basically getting a free second course, dessert and drink for free in your combo. So you do the math!

The price is either 79 pesos for a limited menu option combo or 99 pesos for a larger selection of menu items. Included in the price is drink of the day, salad or pasta, main course plate and then dessert. Wow! All that for just about $5.40-6.40 USD!

The drink of the day can feature fresh made limeade or other fruit infused drink. Portions are nice and you wont leave feeling overstuffed. So how does that sound to you? Well just look at these combos and tell us what you think.

The first combo is a fettuccini pasta with cilantro cream sauce and broccoli, followed by a chicken in white wine sauce with mash potatoes and vegetables, and then lime pie slice (drink not shown).

Such a good find! Thanks for sharing on your website. We look forward to finding more places like this!

      We are glad you found this place! It is not on the usual tourist area of 5th Avenue but with a little looking around you can get some great deals at restaurants. Lunch here is such a good deal and we love supporting this restaurant. Plus if you get to talk to the owner, who is also bilingual, he is really nice.

  3. I took my parents here and they really enjoyed it. The food was very good. I think we were there at the end of lunch so they were a little backed up. That was the only thing that was not the best. I would suggest coming early so you can have faster service.

  4. We found your lunch specials guide and went to Papa Charly restaurant. Really liked it! Great value and good food. We will go back this week, too bad we are here for just two weeks. We loved eating here, thanks for the share.

  5. Last week we stopped by here and had one of the best lunches in Playa del Carmen for a ridiculous low price. We were amazed at the quality of the food and the value. You certainly picked a good choice. We have to start reading more your site for recommendations, you are spot on and really know Playa del Carmen!

  6. We are a group staying in colonia Hollywood as they call the area where Papa Charly is. We read about them on your lunch guide and went, we all had a great meal and wanted to thank you for pointing us in the right direction. We will be sure to look into your other recommendations since yours have been so good so far.

  7. I love this restaurant! We ate breakfast here and loved the French toast! Juan is a nice manager and good guy at this restaurant.
