The enchiladas playa with mixed seafood are more than spectacular. Coupled with the Baja style tacos, cervezas and margaritas you can't go wrong!!

We were all Vegans and the place had at least 5 or 6 different options for us. Fresh food and great friendly service. Loved the margaritas on the rocks, so good. Very busy place, so you know the food is fresh.

Our mission was to find the best Margarita in Playa and this is not the place. We got an overpriced glass of lime juice and ice. Just awful, save your money and head off the strip.

Loved the look of this place and it didn't disappoint! Service was excellent, genuinely friendly staff who were very attentive. We ordered from the breakfast menu and had Ranchero & Mediterannio - would recommend both dishes. Look forward to trying their dinner menu!

We stopped for a between meal appetizer and ordered ceviche and nachos. Fabulous!! We loved the atmosphere, the friendliness of the servers and staff, the colorful tables and chairs, cleanliness of the place, and most of all the food was fresh and delicious. The special care is even seen by the creative plate-ing of the dishes. This is located right... More

We stopped while on a stroll, without checking with trip advisor, but something about the place looked good. I had the cochinita pibil , a Yucatan dish of pork braised in a tart sauce with local spices. This came with a grilled habanero, raw onion, rice and tortillas. The other dish was the sampler plate with about 6 different things..also... More

What a terrific little spot on 5th, over the years we have enjoyed countless wonderful meals at this jewel. Specializing in Mexican fare, fresh and delicious ingredients served with impeccable attitude-they have a lock on North America style breakfasts too: conscious altering coffee, Devine Benedictine eggs-freshly squeezed OJ, and on and on. Don't even bother with the other traps along... More
