Beach dishes served right on the beach. Pretty hipster place. The buffalo shrimp is very good and in general has a good cuisine. Its hard to find and as any beach club there will be sand but it will do for a good meal. No vegetarian dishes.

Great service and music mixed with the best cuisine while enjoying the sun. You could also try very original cocktails and drinks that you will not find anywhere else. Unfortunately the place has payed the bill with nature, as the beach is almost gone. I came here three years ago and it was very different, hope they can bring it... More

This is a very casual restaurant, first is in front of the beach so you can eat even if you go in short, the food is very good and the dessert too, is in a second floor but in the first you can eat too very close to the beach.

On our groups annual trip to Playa we go here for lunch. The view is amazing from the 1st floor. Food is always consistently very good. I tried the blue cheese sliders and they were tasty. The service was a little slower than usual.

Very cool vibes! We spent the afternoon escaping the heat and enjoying the breeze and views. Thank you to the young lady that served our food and cocktails. I am embrassed to say I did not get her name! But she was the only lady waitressing in the bar area.
