“Informal, relaxed, delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Casual restaurant with lovely sunset views. Cheap and delicious - the Sangria is tasty! Wonderful place to relax over some good mexican food. Beware - serving sizes are HUGE! :-)

“Just Fun & Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

If you enjoy good basic Mexican food this is a great place. Informal, to say the least, and fun atmosphere is at the core of La Playita. I would call one of the places to go on any trip to the South Bay Area...

“OK but not by SoCal standards”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Found this place on yelp. it had great reviews. Bottom line: you can certainly find better mexican food in SoCal. Service was good and prices were reasonable. It's a very small/cute joint right off the strand.
