Delicious "seafood cocktails" fresh, tasty, abundant dishes. The fish and shrimp tacos are spectacular, very very good. The prices? very low cost! Do not expect a super cozy nice place, it is rustic, fun and all the locals go which is a very good sign.

This restaurant is very popular with locals. It is a typical Mexican seafood restaurant which prepares all there orders fresh. They locally source all their seafood daily. The service is very good and the prices are excellent.

We used to stop here all the time on our way down south, but with all the wild traffic in Playa now, we just drive on by, but this time we fought the traffic and stopped in for a quick bite. It looks just the same thank goodness. The shrimp tacos were really good, but in years past they had... More

Best place and prices for a quick lunch, or mid afternoon break. Amazing Shrimp tacos or shrimp cocktail and cold beer. Even the small size is rather large. Fast and friendly service, at this place filled with locals and tourist alike. Floreasta has lots of seating in the shade and always a nice breeze blowing through on a hot day.... More

This was tasty simple food and at 20 pesos per taco very affordable. My husband had the ceviche which he said was the best he had in Playa, and we shared shrimp, fish, marlin and crab tacos. We enjoyed it enough that we ate there a second time on this trip. Service was fast and friendly.

Love the tacos. Simple and fresh, try one of each. BUT the real shinning star is the shrimp cocktail. After all the shrimp are gone we always drink the cocktail portion, the only thing that would make it better would be a shot of vodka! Served as a medium but only the large will do for me. On my last... More

Shrimp, crab, fish or Marlin...huh, Marlin? It doesn't matter because they are all good. If you crave fish, and care to ash it down with a cool lime-cervesa, then you should try this place. Its actually easy to find off 307 at the southern end of PDC. 20 pesos a taco and friendly local service. Enjoy!
