Excellent Restaurant

Playa La Ropa's second best eats after the Casa (now Tides). The seafood here is actually just as good as the Tides, but the Tides has em on authenticity and surroundings ( the grounds at both places are beautiful.

Decent, not fabulous food. Nice view from the deck. Service is a bit sketchy. Does not live up to its reputation, in my book.

Best restaurant in town! Chef Ricardo Rodriguez KNOWS his cuisine. Ceviche, beer and a spectacular view of the bay at sunset. Very romantic if you need to convince your partner, wife, husband.

This restaurant has been our perennial favorite. During our recent visit on a Friday night with friends the food was exceptional. The roasted chicken, the veal osso bucco and everything including the desert was great. The chef is the owner. We could not wait to go back unfortunately we decided to go Valentines Eve.

The appetizer and Caesar Salad were very tasty,... More

The view is incredible but the main was heavy on oil and the wine list was limited. French Onion Soup was delicious and desserts incredible. Worth visiting for the view
