This is great simple restaurant that serves great Mexican food & if you sit outside in the small patio you get great views of the ocean & can watch the sun set. There is a good choice of food and the portions are a good size. The marguaritas are excellent. You will not be disappointed with the great service &... More

Huge portions here, we would have just split one order. The food was fresh, and delicious. We would both highly recommend the marquarita's.

Been a patron of this place or it's antecedents for over 30 years. Looking for great Mexican at the beach? Look no further. If your idea of Mexican food is strolling mariachi, keep looking. The menu is simple- try Melinda's relleno- the atmosphere vintage Hermosa and the prices less than $10/person. Tuck this one away for a laid-back experience

This isn't one of those fancy mexican places with $15 burritos and trendy staff - in contrast, it's cheap, quick, no-frills mexican food in a small little restaurant right off the beach. All the seating is in a small outdoor covered area with a decent view of the ocean and sunset. There is a good selection of entrees - all... More

La Playita is a hidden Hermosa favorite. A perfect Mexican cuisine menu at reasonable beach prices, food and service good. Nothing fancy from the menu to the setting make this a perfect place. Margarita specials at happy hour. Low key, family and friends oriented. Great views of the beach from inside and patio.

Had lunch here while spending the day at Hermosa Beach, and we were extremely happy that we found this place. The staff was exceedingly friendly, and the food was absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere was very local and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling through Hermosa that wants great food and great service. Look forward to going back!

La Playita is a great little Mexican restaurant where the locals go to grab a bite. It offers a good, solid Mexican menu, and a very friendly, helpful staff. You can choose to sit on the outdoor patio or inside; either location is lovely. It's one of the places I try to visit whenever I'm in town.
