Gotta go back

Service, food, drinks and the atmosphere set this place apart on the ave. I had been there for a drink or two but this was the first time I sat down to eat. Why I waited so long is beyond me. All their tacos taste great and the tres leches is the best in town.

Was down in Playa this past week and always look forward to going over here for the Empanada's and much to my disbelief the place is closed and someone else has opened in its old spot. It's called Dojs Bagutte. I didn't notice until after I got up to leave and I looked at the sign and it was not... More

I believe this place has closed. We looked for this restaurant the week of May 4th and couldn't find it.

We had a variety of their empanadas, all which were delicious. A little different than what we expected but very, very good. They have outdoor seating under a large wonderful tree canopy which kept us cool in the summer heat. Staff was great and prices reasonable.

After tasting my husband's beef turnover, I had to go back again to get one for myself. Sausage sandwich and steak sandwich were delicious. Salad with goat cheese and almonds was a repeat order also. Prices very reasonable and the waitress (owner?) was wonderful.

The first thing that impressed me about this place was the orange juice that was freshly squeezed (not from a can or carton). It only went uphill from there! My husband and I ordered the sirloin steak tacos and fish'n chips (catch of the day) our first visit, and the second visit, we got the grill for two, which was... More

GF and I shared the mixed grill, not super cheap at around 28 dollars but very well prepared, moist chicken, delicious steak and more than enough for 2. Was worried because we were the only table but honestly some of the most tender and flavorful steak I've had recently. very good service and relaxing outdoor dining

Very nice, outdoors with nice surroundings. Service is wonderful and the food is BETTER THAN THAT! Had the "Grilll" and it was so good! Beef, pork, chicken and sausage with a wonderful chimichurri and green sauce. Salad was fresh and crunchy as were the fries. Truly enjoyed ourselves. We felt like this was a slice of Mexico that you didn't... More
