I am not a fan of servers standing on the street, begging you to come in. Their approach was much different, warming and not pressure. The food was good and when we needed extra chips, they didn't charge us. The drinks were actually full of liquor, which also made us happy, as many places try to push watered down drinks.

So much food to choose from. Authentic and delicious! Everything is beautiful and served in clay pots. Best part of the trip because we missed the show.

Like the cervice. Friends had fish tacos and loved them. There were strolling Mariachi bands that would come by and play which added to the ambience.

We had a hard time ordering two soft tacos with just meat and cheese for our kids. But what the adults ordered was very good. My husband loved the civiche especially.

You would think that the "Exclusive Playacar" would have at least a decent restaurant. No air conditioning, no ventilation for the food smoke coming from kitchen and very dirty. The employees aren't pleasant and don't seem to want to be there at all, they actually seemed annoyed when you come in as if you just created more work for them.... More
