This restaurant was absolutely fabulous! You can sit pretty much on the street which is great for people watching.

The staff was SO friendly, and they held true to the price they were advertising on the street for beer vs the price it was... More

Walked in from the street and was very disappointed. Chewy steak soggy anchiladas and generally a bad experience. I have to say the service was good though. When we complained about the steak they were really nice and gave us some free drinks and took it off the bill. But still, keep walking...

Worst meal we ate in Playa. Felt like we were at some tacky American Mexican place in the US. Nothing very authentic about the food or the service. Found a giant hair in my fijitas which also didn't help.
