The setting is incredible, their restaurant is basically on the beach, so you can't beat the view. All the dishes we've tried were simply delicious from the starters to the mains. To top everything up the service was excellent, the waiters besides being super nice and corteous were always checking if we needed anything else. Will definitely come back!

This place was very nice and the food was excellent. The portions are a little smaller than we expected for the price based on the other places we had eaten in Montezuma. Expect to spend a little more money here but it will be worth it. The service was very friendly as well.

We went to this restaurant with high expectations and were very disappointed. The menu promised so much and our selected dishes were poor. We had a starter of squid stuffed with its tentacles, breadcrumbs and pistachios with an interesting looking sauce. The squid however was overlooked and tough. Our main courses were very disappointing. my husbands dish was stringy, tough... More

Everything just okay. Pricey and was told it was the best place. Maybe was told it was too amazing and a MUST. We didn't feel like it was. Wish we would of tired another place with better reviews and that we saw filled with patrons.

We dined at Playa nearly every evening we were in Montezuma. Staff was amazing and every meal was scrumptious. The fish is so fresh. We also sat feet from the Pacific Ocean.

Having had a couple of glasses of wine with a fellow hotel guest he suggested that we go to this restaurant for dinner. Arrived there without a reservation but luckily we were able to join some friends of his at their table. The friends were such a great 'couple' that I just had so much fun as well as a... More

We had dinner here several times as part of a yoga retreat. There's only one word to describe both the food and location - divine! From the baked red snapper to the steamed prawn parcels, the taste and presentation was fantastic every time. Dishes were perfectly spiced and very 'clean' - no fear of oil overload here. The wine choices... More

We had a very nice lunch here (only open for lunch on Saturday I believe). The menu was difficult to read but one of the servers went through it with us, and then it was a bit difficult to decide, but ultimately we made good selections and really enjoyed it. we had the garlic chicken and the chile relleno, both...

This is an upscale, expensive restaurant right on the beach. Low tables with cushions or large round tables, candlelight, very romantic and the most interesting washroom you will ever be in.
