We were all very pleased with our meals.......salad with beef tenderloin, fish plate with well prepared julienne vegetables, and three cheese pasta. This is a slow food restaurant so the availability of the menu changes daily. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Chose this as our final meal on our trip and were not disappointed - the food was really upscale and fresh with lots of great dishes prepared from really fresh ingredients. Everything was cooked to perfection. Small outdoor place, very intimate and very good food.

They say they're all about slow food, but they got us our meals quite fast! Simple but nice food. As expensive as all other restaurants in the area. We found this spot because La Botanica Organica Cafe (our original goal) happened to be closed.

We had a delicious dinner in a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere. The service was very good and the food was fresh and substantial. I highly recommend this dining experience. Playa Chiquita is lucky to have this establishment.

My boyfriend and I walked into this restaurant on a late rainy night when it was the only restaurant open. I loved it as soon as I stepped in. There was enticing aromas in the air, pretty twinkly lighting and Norah Jones playing. We ordered...More
