The place is packed and noisy which contributes to the fun atmosphere. The food was delicious and I would recommend the guacamole started and the 3 tacos dishes. The Mojito could have used more Rum in it...

My husband and I went here for the first time on recommendation from a co-worker. We were not disappointed. The tequila list was enormous at all price points and varieties and the margaritas were superb - real fresh lime mix, not a cheap, sugary kool-aid...More

We sat on a cozy patio on a warm summer’s night with a pitcher of great tasting margaritas ($60) and tasty Mexican food. The appetizers - guacamole and octopus tacos- came out quickly and both were delicious. We’d barely finished and the mains were served....More

The front door slammed on my hand when I went to the restaurant for dinner. I screamed because I was in excruciating pain. The hostess said, "Sorry. That door is always a problem." Other than an offer of ice about 4 minutes after the accident...More

I frequent Playa almost weekly, the L.A Truck was possibly the best taco in the city. Some changes have been made to the menu. What seems to be moves to save money are reflected in poor quality food. Everything we ordered was under-par from what...More

I love love Playa Cabana! It is a family favorite and every dish we have tried so far has been above average. That being said, the Chicken Tinga Tacos cannot be topped. Their amazingly unique smokeyness paired with a crispy shell and traditional Mexican cheese...More

The good Mexican food was tainted by a terrible experience we had with Playa Cabana’s management. Several months ago, our party was overcharged a substantial amount on our bill. We explained the problem to the staff, who told us they’d look into it. But, despite...More

It is a fun restaurant for a night out. We tried a few dishes including the most acclaimed fish tacos and short ribs burrito. While drinks were tasty (but pricey), meals were not impressive at all. Just an average. Flavours were not particularly impressive.

Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
