Delightful food and service. everything was fresh and made in house. Ask for the habanero sauce for a little more heat and tons of flavor.

We went there for dinner and were very pleased with the friendly staff. One cannot call this place just a Mexican restaurant. It has influences of Latin America, particular the Yuccatan. For instance we had Chili Rellenos with a white sauce. i had the Choc-Mool chicken. These both were different but fantastic. Javier who is the owner and from the... More

We go several times each winter. Friendly staff. Great food. Try the Sangria. Prices are great too. Javier, the owner, is a real gentleman. Nice family restaurant.

Chose this very unassuming place from among other bigger and brighter spots along the main drag. But the reviews here pulled us in, as well as did the confirmation from our motel concierge of excellent authentic Mexican cuisine right across the street. We were very happy with the choice! Delicious homemade sangrias, fresh guacamole, and something for everyone. Even our... More

The restaurant is always a reliable, flavorful pick. The cochinita tacos are always a great choice. The tamale and enchiladas are also very good. Javier is a warm, welcoming man who takes pride in his restaurant. Jessica is a wonderful, friendly part of the Playa experience. Please try it for yourself. Skip the chains, skip the loud music and find... More
