“No need to leave Conchas Chinas for lunch.”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

My wife and I spent a week in PV and stayed in Conchas Chinas at the Quinta Maria Cortez (see separate review for that), and we ate at La Playita multiple times. The food is good and the portions are large. They make a very mean margarita!!! This is a good option if you don't want to go to the hassle of going into town or paying for a Taxi.

Really 3.5 stars, but that is not an option. Give them a try.

“Super food, great service, spectacular views, too pricey.”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We loved the sunday brunch, the shrimp fajitas, the lovely setting, the efficient service, and essentially everything buy yhe proces, which were just a tad too high.

“Loved the coffee they served for breakfast”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We ate breakfast everyday at the La Playita. Good food and loved the coffee. I even bought some to take home. I am almost out of the coffee and am trying to find out what kind of coffee they served and where I can buy more. Anyone know?

“LOVED this little gem!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stayed at Lindo Mar, and figured we'd pop in La Playita a time or two - WRONG - we ate there several times during our stay. The food is REALLY good, and the wait staff is wonderful! We ate everything from breakfast to Sunday brunch to lunch (REALLY good fish or shrimp tacos, crab enchiladas, cerviche) to dinner (the shrimp something or other Debbie is out of this world, as is the fish something Cesar - YUM!) Right on the beach, the view is awesome as well. A great little place any time of the day!

“Great Food....GREAT View”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We have eaten many times at La Playita restaurant, in the Lindo Mar Resort, in Conchas China, Puerto Vallarta. The food is absolutely delicious...the BEST Cevicche in Mexico!!! The Sunday morning buffet is NOT to be missed....SO much wonderful food, for a very good price!! Best of all is the view....you are literally sitting just above the beach, steps away from the gorgeous water. We have often spotted dolphins in the bay! It is probably the most "picturesque" beach in all of PV. The staff is VERY nice, attention to every detail is assured! Don't miss it!!!!
