Great food

Loved what we ordered and the service was good. We had the fish tacos and a salad. Everything was delicious and fresh. The tables could have used a better cleaning. Loved that they played soft jazz at a lower volume. Can't stand the places that play blaring dance music so loud you can't talk. The... read more

We had lunch and or appetizers before dinner there many times during our stay in Playa. Super location on the beach. Good wait staff and consistent food quality, plus music in the afternoon and again in the evening. There are so many great places to eat dinner that we only came in the evenings for drinks. The menu is strictly... More

My husband and I stopped here twice as the location is really good. You can sit on some comfy couches on the beach while you eat and drink or pick a table. The first time was semi-busy and our server was not very attentive to us. We had to grab the bus boy a few times to get us some... More

Located on the beach, Zenzi is a great place to go. Live music is always good there. I often found the service very slow, but the ambience good.

I thought there was going to be a better vibe.. it was very quite but maybe it was because the weather was very bad when I visited.

Visited this place twice during my stay in July. First time was on A Saturday night when the place was semi busy. Only 2 bartenders were working behind the bar... They were paying most of their attention to a group of people at the corner of the bar near thr entry, i guess they must be regulars or related to... More

The waiters are slow and rude. Got so long to get the food and quality didn't stand up for the price. The only good thing is the salsa life music.

We ended up visiting this restaurant each day of our vacation - cheap eats, great food, and beautiful views. Most employees were amazingly attentive; although a few were less accommodating. Regardless, their ceviche, coconut shrimp and muchos nachos were a perfect snack for our time at the beach. We will be back!
