“If all you're looking for is a view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The restaurant has a beautiful view and seating right on the sand. However, the tables are very low as are the chairs. There is no was you can manage your legs under this table, so dress appropriately ladies. The food is only average. The prices are too high here. The waitress got 2 of 3 drink orders wrong. Service is slow. It does stay very busy but it struck me as a typical tourist trap. I won't be back for dinner.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review. We are glad to know that you enjoyed the view. As you said, the tables and chairs on the sand are low. We do offer the option to sit in the deck where you can find high tables and chairs still with the ocean view.
About the prices, we would like to precise that people must realize Fusion doesn't just offer food but also a great spot on the beach, a beautiful view, entertainment since the afternoon till the end of the night (2 different live music bands, a belly dance show and a fire show every night)

Also, Fusion is very known for being loved by local people.

We are sorry that the experience wasn't as high as your expectations and the service disappointed you. Nevertheless we would be glad to see you again! We always try to do our best and our goal is to make your experience fantastic.

Saludos

“A great stop during a walk on the beach.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We took a walk down the beach on our first day of vacation and stopped here for lunch. The margarita's were good and the nachos were excellent. They were big enough for my husband and I to share. Service as good. We sat at low tables, with umbrella's and our feet in the sand. It was a perfect stop!!

“Great food & service on the beach! Must go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Our family loved FUSION. Ate and drank here several times. Friendly staff, great food (loved the shrimp tacos!) and you can't beat the ocean view as your just steps from the sea. Highly recommend! Great fire dance show at night too!

“Most Authentic Beach Bar in Playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Great food portions, live music afternoons and evenings, fire shows, belly dancers, dim candle lighting and your feet in the sand. What more can you ask for from a beach club/restaurant in Playa?

“Eat, drink and watch the sunset with your feet in the sand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We really enjoyed the restaurant at Fusion because much of the seating is right on the beach. What an amazing place to have your feet in the sand, kick back with a drink, and watch the sunset!
Reasonable drink prices.
The food was good, I really liked the grilled fish tacos, but the burger was not as good as advertised and also didn't come out until 20 minutes after all the rest of us had our food.
Live music many nights that can be a little loud.
