Great View Great Service

We stay near the La Playita when we go to PV. La Playita has a fantastic ocean view and the staff are very attentive.

This was the first place I went to as soon as I arrived and settled in my hotel. The reason I went is because it was close by like a walking distance from my hotel (25 min). I was not impressed with the food, I had a sopa de mariscos (seafood soup), and it was decent compared to other places... More

We recently went to La Playita for breakfast. We have been coming to Puerto Vallarta for several years (one of our party has been coming here for 30 years). When we are in Puerto Vallarta we try to have breakfast at La Playita at least once. The view is spectacular and the services is excellent. The food is very good.... More

This was ok - we ate there twice. The first time I thought it was very good - the food is decent and the location was convenient. After eating other places though, we found there were better options and fresher guacamole. The shrimp tacos were a little greasy. He margaritas were amazing. Worth eating if you are nearby but not... More

We've eaten here twice in the last week as it's close to our condo. It's a beautiful open air place right on the ocean. The service was very good. They bring out salsa and chips as well as fresh buns. The fajitas are excellent and the whole snapper with garlic was amazing. Averaged 250 pesos/person.

On the beach, tremendous staff and service and a lot of really good food. Saturdays easy to get in, Sunday should go early or plan on a short wait. Well worth the trip.

The good parts first. The view is beautiful. I love Puerto Vallarta and this is just a few minutes south of PV in the lower Conchas Chinas area. I went with a friend that had been there many times and verbally made a comment of "I like it here but the food is just ok". He wasn't far off. I... More

This restaurant is such a find! Not fancy, but the location is unbeatable. We had breakfast there this week, with a table right on the edge looking at the water. Great mushroom omelette.

Even though I have given this an average rating, I really like this place. The location and view spectacular. The service is excellent. The margaritas are very good, but watch them, they are quite powerful. Some of the food is quite good, but for the most part average. Salsa and guacamole very good. Shrimps Debbie, yummy, although a tad bit... More
