We went to Cheesters and ordered the Passthai, which was so tasty, we highly recommend this. Looking forward to returning and it will be hard to not order the same again.

We have eaten there many times and have NEVER been disappointed. The portions are large, it is fun to order family style and try a couple of dishes. Also try a shake or two, but beware you could probably make a meal out of one of those, oh and also if you are craving a salad, this could be your... More

I have been to Cheesters many times and never been disappointed. It is off the tourist area on 40th and 4 but well worth the visit. The portions are huge, and the atmosphere is interesting. Our favorites are the Alejandro Mango salad (large enough for 4 people)and the famous Pasthai.(large enough for 3 people maybe 4) The homemade bread is... More

This Mexican Italian style restaurant is local treasure. I loved the chalkboard menu - hint: you'll be seated and then head back to the chalkboard to select your food and drink. The menu is full of inventive and fun Italian dishes. I ordered the 'Magnifica' with shrimp instead of chicken and my friend had the ' Al Capone'. Both were... More

We went to Cheesters for the first time tonight and was amazed. What a cool place!!! You walk in to a loud crowded space and take your seat. You walk up to the menu on the wall and make your choice. Mostly pastas and raviolis, but there were many choices. All priced plus or minus $200 pesos ($20 USD). We... More

One of the best restaurants in Playa. Great pasta, great service, great decor. And not at all expensive. I've been several times and have never been disappointed. It's a must. A low rent location but all taxistas know it.

Since the first time I have eaten at this place I am a FAN of Cheesters. The atmosphere is familiar and the plates are big. It's común that you share a pasta enter two or 3 persons. It is a little bit away from the 5th Av. but with a taxi you can reach the place within 5min. I highly... More
