A Tranquil Meal
La Cocina del árbol isn’t your typical Playa del Carmen restaurant. It’s located within a gated residential area, inside the larger complex, El Árbol Playacar. The center also houses the International School, a community garden, and rental spaces. The eatery itself feels secluded, intimate, and authentic. The sustainable buildings use a special water collection system, solar energy, a compost program, and a landscape hospitable to native species. The wood and stone buildings also blend into their surroundings, beautiful and integrated into the forest.
The restaurant itself offers healthy food crafted from high-quality local produce. Enjoy a salad with ingredients harvested from the center’s garden along with bread freshly baked in their wood oven. Daily menus offer such delicacies as stuffed zucchini, carrot soup, wood-fired pizzas, eggplant curries, sandwiches, and more. Oh, and there’s good Wi-Fi.
