By far the best was the tuna tostada, I should have just ordered three of those! Great service and a good respite from the heat with wonderful food - I would... More

Typical Mexican restaurant, lots of choices like fish tacos, tostadas and more. Recommended by locals, it's the right place to go. The place is informal and also recommended to heal your hangovers.

Local place, 3 blocks from 5th ave, not typical tourist trap. Seafood is fresh made, the stuff not speak English, but they try hard to help you. If you try you will be back.

sophisticated food in a very simple ambiance, very reasonable prices.... unforgettable shrimps a la diabla... if you are trying to avoid the expensive tourist traps, this is your place. Mostly locals, always crowded. This is my number one choice in Playa

Loved the ceviche, fish tacos and tostadas. All of the sauces that they bring out are amazing too! We've been twice during this trip and hope to go back one more time.
