What a lovely walk from our hotel to this big beachside restaurant with multilevel decks and attendant staff. Very good prices though I would pass on the special blue margarita unless sweetness is appreciated. Seafood salad was excellent, as was the snapper fillet. Beach down the steps for an all day experience.

In June 2014, my partner and I did an informal commitment ceremony on the beach to the left of the restaurant, so it has sentimental value to me, and I go there every trip, even if he is back in the States at work. This June, my group of three newbies, one second-timer, and myself went out there for breakfast... More

This place is always on the must do list. Service did seem to be a little off this trip, but the food was great! I think they have a new chef as our favorites were prepared/served a little differently but still good. The main attraction here is the Margarita and the Sunset...come for both! We enjoy their Coconut Shrimp and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. Convenient to those staying at Lindo Mar resort and surrounding area. Pleasant waiters. Don't be in any hurry though, as it is not expedited service. We enjoyed the happy hours, and the occasional 4 piece band that wondered through the restaurant singing , and playing....

Sitting on the edge of the sand overlooking the beautiful waters edge, was perfect. All the food was yummy and the Rita's hit the spot. Definitely worth the drive from wherever you are staying.

La Playita is one of my all time favorite, local, must visit restaurants I have to have lunch here, at least once, when in PVR. It sits just a few feet above a small beach and you are basically right on the water. The food is very good for the price point. The happy hour is always a favorite, as... More

The food and drinks are average but the location is awesome. It's as close to the ocean as you can get without having to touch the sand. Go for happy hour.

Enjoyed a Sunday morning breakfast buffet with a great view. Ocean is literally below the railing next to your table! Selection of traditional Mexican breakfast foods was very good. Food was hot and delicious. Bloody Mary and Mimosa was good too!!

We have dined here in the past so it was one of our first stops this winter. We have eaten here 5 times this winter, sometimes we brought along friends. The view is still fantastic. It's great sitting there and listening to the ocean while having drinks and dining. Food as always is very good. Although somewhat of a limited... More
