My wife and I spent a week in Vallarta at the Lindo Mar resort and ate at La Playita every day! There wasn't one thing on the menu that we didn't enjoy. We had the dinner for two (more like dinner for 3-4. This thing is massive) with the lobster, shrimp, fish and squid, our first night here and it... More

This little restaurant was just down the beach from our B&B, so we went several times. The margaritas were strong, the fajitas were great, and the guacamole was cheap and delicious! We were lucky enough to be there one evening when the breeze was cool and the sunset was gorgeous, and it was one of our favorite evenings of the... More

Visited with friends for lunch and had just another great experience. The food is always excellent as well as the service. But, the location, the view of the bay and breezes are simply overwhelming. Highly recommended!!!

This is the very best Sunday brunch in PV. We are tempted to go every Sunday - we miss some though. Lovely setting by the sea and a delightful selection of breakfast foods: don't miss the omelets and the quesadillas made to order, and also the wide selection of fruit. On Sundays, arrive early, about 9am, to avoid the crowds... More

I snorkeled up to this eatery from the near by beach. I had to come back another day, you need a shirt to have a drink/eat. Drink were good, but very expensive, the food is... let's just say to cook for foreigners or expats. The best part of this place is that it is open air and on the beach,... More

Went there a couple of times for happy hour (12-1) two for one drinks and nachos and guacamole. Nice casual setting by the beach with good service. Breakfast was just OK, but convenient to where we were staying (at Quinta Maria Cortez). I'll be back.

Being a member of Trip Advisor we have always heard everyone talk about La Playita. We couldn't wait to get there this trip. We had breakfast there last Monday and it wasn't crowded at all. Sat right on the "edge" by the rail- in the open aired restaurant which over looked the beach area and wonderful "rock formations." This is... More

The sunsets are spectacular from this very typical Mexican décor restaurant. The menu is varied and quit good. The frittatas are the best that I have ever tasted. The drink master at happy hour does come up with some wonderful surprises. Be sure and try the Sunday Mexican brunch. This is truly a spot that you do not want miss... More

La Playita has the BEST view of the Bay of Banderas - tables right above the beach and rocks. Sunset there is amazing! We love the friendly service and the margaritas and the food! One of our favorite restaurants in PV!!!
