We found this place by accident . It was like hitting the lotto on one of the best and freshest seafood. Abimael was a great host. Excellent food. They have the best ceviche and michiladas in town . Must try !!!!

We were looking for a good sea food restaurant! And this one caught our attention! We ordered shrimp cocktail, seafood molcajete, stuffed filet, some guayaba margarita, piña colada !! And their sweet alcoholic shot (tasted like masapan the Mexican candy) all was delicious!!!! We are very satisfied!!! Good price !!!!! It was all great !

I hate to say anything bad about El Oasis. It has been my favorite place in all of Playa to get seafood for years. However...about 3-4 months ago, something changed. The service has gotten very slow, but even worse, they told us they did not have shrimp tacos. Tacos de Camarones were the first thing I ever ate here and... More

Been here many times! Good service and good food. Fish tacos are done tempura style. Portions are great. Had the shrimp cocktail - good, not amazing. More ketchup tasting then any other flavor. Shrimp ajillo - delicious! Slight heat, very flavourful. Good portion size. Ask for the water of the day - the maracuya was fantastic! They have an air... More

We stayed at an all inclusive resort but wanted to try a local restaurant serving authentic food and this one fit the bill. The décor of the open air restaurant was charming, the staff very attentive, and the food was very good. Prices were reasonable. Husband loved the shrimp soup, all love the guacamole & chips, one of our children... More

This is my place I go to the first night in town, to dive back into the food of playa. I have been going there for over 10 years and still love it just as much a the first time. The place is fun and open air, the servers are nice and always smiling, the restaurant is clean and well... More

it's not fancy, but it's fun. We sat outdoors and were able to people watch. The food was fantastic! Especially the octopus! I loved the design touches inside the restaurant, too. The chef came out and spoke with us, when we were raving about the food. So personable --great service. Perfect evening. Not expensive, and highly recommend!

Our driver recommended this fantastic place. Really good service. After reading the reviews we ordered drinks, some appetizers and the Coconut Shrimp. We were not disappointed. We had too much food and the take away was just great the next day. We will definitely make this one of our regular stops when visiting Playa.

Our taxi recommended this place for its excellent seafood soup. He called it soupa de viagara. It was as good as he said it would be. The ceviche de mariscos was also very good, the octopus was just right. The margaritas were smaller than other places, so have two.
