We made multiple visits to this restaurant for dinner. We walked there from our hotel and planned our dinners around sunset. The views are great as well as the shrimp tacos and margaritas. We had brunch there the day we were leaving, which made it even harder to leave. Great brunch as well! Thank you!

This place is really nice. My favorite part of this restaurant is the view. It has an amazing view of the shore and tide pools. Food is really good. I'd highly recommend any seafood plate. Meat and chicken aren't so good though. Overall this is a very nice place to have dinner, I highly highly recommend it.

Mexican food is not my forte as I would rather be sipping margaritas all day long but I have to say that La Playita is pretty great! First off, you are right above the waves so the view is beautiful! The staff is all friendly and they all knew us by the end of our stay! The margaritas are strong... More

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.
