This restaurant was recommended to us by other guest of our hotel which had dinned there the night before. The service, food and atmosphere was excellent with very reasonable prices. We had the swordfish steak and the buttersoy tuna, both were delicious. We ended the night we a chocolate souffle served with vanilla icecream which was their dessert of the... More

I don't think I've ever given a restaurant a perfect score, but there is simply no room for improvement here. Great decor, intimate, excellent service, great wine selection, and amazing food. The first night I had the special, langostino lobster and grouper in a lemon cream sauce. My wife had the fillet with red wine reduction. Both were fantastic. The... More

We went here to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We ordered different things from the menu and all of them were cooked to perfection, from the tuna appeteizer to the fillet mignon every bite we took was delicious. Great wine list and super friendly people. Next time we go to playa we'll know were to go again.

Fantastic service, good quality food. Probably best for couples rather than families. Small number of dishes that are well perfected, sort of I between fine dining and comfort food

I went for it based on the outstanding trip advisor reviews. I ordered the lobster special which was recommended by the very sweet waiter. It was overcooked and had zero seasoning. It tasted like lobster boiled in milk. I rarely send food back - but I just couldn't eat it. They were very apologetic and gave us two cheesecakes to... More

The small comfortable restaurant is decorated very nice and the atmosphere is perfect- calm amd serine. The service is 5 stars and the food is beyond that in my opionion. The chef and staff call me Mr. Prieto, even after I said call me Tony! They are wonderful and you walk in and out feeling great!

This was one of the best meals I had during my 3 weeks in Mexico, and I had some incredible meals, including a culinary cooking course! It's small, so book ahead if you can, and not overly fancy or pretentious, but the service and the food is exceptional. Fantastic value for money.

Really a perfect dinning experience for my family & me. Four orders of the Butter Tuna & everyone loved it. Two orders of the fillet & both said it was the best steak they ever had. From the gracious owners to the perfectly clean kitchen, to the outstanding food.. this was a 10 across the board. We have not been... More

First of all make a reservation if you intend on going here as it books out quickly. The restaurant is what you want if you are looking for something fancier than the other areas of Playa. The menu is slightly strange with several starters consisting of salad and curry mixed into an otherwise classy mains section but the food is... More
