Great place, good food and cheap cerveza. The place was packed with locals and the prices are really great for a place so close to fifth Avenue. We found this gem last trip to Playa, and it did not disappoint this trip.

We just returned from Playa and were greatly disappointed with the majority of the food we had while there but La Taberna was the exception. It was recommended by our hotel management (LunaSol) down the street when we said we were looking for some good nachos. We wish we had discovered it sooner instead of our last night, otherwise, we...

How hard is it to make a hamburger? The burger I had was inedible and the fries it came with were stone cold, limp and soggy. Even the beer did not managed to wash away the taste. Avoid this place.

We stumbled in la Taberna by accident looking for a place to watch English football having been a bit disappointed by EZ. The guys were super friendly and helped us to get the wheelchair up the two small steps. The place is clean and air conditioned and surprisingly cheap in comparison to anything on 5th avenue. The food (gambas ajillo)... More

Love going here for a no fuss, meal. Friendly service, great food, large portions. Cool hang out for grabbing a cold beer and watching some sports or shooting pool! Close to 5th ave but not directly on 5th so, a break from the huge crowds. I had pasta carbonara and it came with a portion of cheesy garlic bread ,... More
