Just finished breakfast, our first time there. The food and service was very good. I loved the Caribbean breakfast and Mark enjoyed the machaca. Pretty view, casual place.

Do not judge this restaurant by its small size or modest building! Food and service are excellent. They have wonderful shredded beef tacos, for example, and their pinto beans have real flavor--probably due to pork fat and expert cooking. They also have excellent omlettes and whole wheat pancakes! This restaurant isn't for the tofu taco crowd; instead, it is for... More

This is a gem in Hermosa Beach. It is off Pier Ave by one block, so you don't get all of the crowds. Ocean view. Inside/outside seating. Good food, good portions, and at a reasonable price. Margaritas are very good here.

Loved this small place right across the street from The Beach House Hotel. Good chips and salsa and delicious fish tacos!

Wanted a place for dinner down by the beach, so we went to LaPlayita, very good food and good service. Nice little restaurant right off the strand. We all enjoyed our dinners.

Well, we went to this restaurant tonight because it had such good reviews. It was fair-we were a little disappointed. I don't know if I was expecting it to be really good due to the reviews or what but I wouldn't recommend it or go back. Sorry LaPlayita......

Have been coming here for years. Breakfast after a morning bike-ride with friends. Lunch with husband (best fish tacos we have ever found) Dinner at sunset, with great margaritas, looking through Harold's personal rose garden, watching the waves get big in the early evening. Heck, we even have a "love lock" on the wall. Almost hate to tell anyone how... More

There are still a few places in Hermosa Beach that make you feel like you and they have been there for 40 years. La Playita is one of them. Most of the other classic restaurants have given way to the nouveau bar & grill, but not them. A good, solid, traditional Mexican eatery with casual atmosphere, a good menu and... More

Really great Mexican breakfasts on the patio with a view of the ocean. Huevos Rancheros are the best with a pitcher of Mimosas. What could be better!
