This restaurant has a beach view

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.

This is one of my favorite places to go in Playa, it has delicious food and amazing variety of cocktails. You can spend all day here with friends or family. Also the best place to party too, if you get the luck of been in playa when there´s a Canibal party going on, you cannot miss it!!!!!

Frustrated by the crowded beaches elsewhere in Playa, my boyfriend and I sought out Canibal Royal when we just wanted to lie down and have some drinks. It definitely delivered! The service was very fast and our servers, Horacio and Benji, were really fun and funny and attentive without hovering. Food was tasty, too, and the music is definitely present,... More

This Beach Club has good food and is a fun place for beach devotees during the day. However, at night they are incredibly uncaring and selfish. They set up rock-concert quality speakers and blare their techno-music for the benefit of everyone else within a mile radius. We spend a lot of money in Playa at an expensive complex close by...
