The best seared duck I've ever had! Then we ordered the fillet and Mongolian beef entrées Togo, we enjoyed those later at home! My filet was succulent and my... More

A real sleeper off the beaten path. Nothing pretentious, Food, staff, atmosphere all delightful. They have two menus: Standard and Asian fusion. My wife ordered from standard and I, asian. We were both very pleased. First restaurant we will visit when returning to Playa.
