Great food for on the beach

I had read the beach isn't too good here, but maybe it is because we went kind of early, 10 -1ish, the boats were all gone in front, and a couple came in to drop off scuba folks and then took off again, so we had lots of beach to swim and play in. Also, this same day, no seaweed.... read more

Restaurant is located right on the beach with a scenic view of the ocean. The food ranges from excellent to average depending on the dish. The ceviche and the salmon fillet are amazing, I highly recommend both while the salads they offer are mediocre. Staff are very polite and there is usually a cover band playing at the restaurant.

This was a nice place by the public beach access point on the northern end of town. Boats and jet skis have access here but the water is good and has a sandy bottom on a calm day you get that clear Caribbean water everyone looks for. The club is nice get a lounge chair in the back.

Excellent service. Great location. The seafood chowder is the best I've ever had. We were staying close by and it was just an easy place to stop in and have a drink and something to eat.

We spend a few hours on the beach at Zenzi. We lay at the shaded sun beds. The service was great! There was continiously staff on the lookout to refill your empty glass. Also, they would walk by every 20 min orso to ask if everything was pleasent. We most certainly felt like guests here and would definately return. Also,... More

Right on the beach at 10th street -- reasonable prices and good food. Our server Martin was very attentive and helpful with food recommendations -- we had the grilled Grouper and it was excellent . After Lunch we just relaxed at our table and did not feel pressured to vacate the table.

We came here because Fusion was closed. There was no one at the door to seat us when we came in, so we sat ourselves. The hostess came over and seemed really pissed off that we sat ourselves. Handed us one menu and walked off. Our waiter took our drink order, brought us our drinks and then basically was missing... More

Having lived in playa for more than 120 days out of the last 365, this place was always on the mark and has a priceless setting to eat and/or drink. However, yesterday was really disappointing. The service was inattentive and the food bland and not eye appealing. My fish tacos came with two tortillas and the battered fish on them.... More

We have spent a few afternoons here, no charge for using loungers, they do great cocktails and the food is really good, great range from snacks to meals and really not that expensive either. At 5pm they have live bands on every time we have been there, which is a great finish to the day. Really had a great time... More
