Having just spent a week at the Lindo Mar, our group ate quite a few meals at La Playita. Of particular note are the breakfasts. The Saturday and Sunday brunch buffets are great. But even better are their daily breakfast choices, in particular the pancakes, French toast and omelets. Lunch and dinner are good as well and the view onto the beach, with it's tidal pools and rocks, is amazing. I can't wait to go back next year. Highly recommended.

We have been going to La Playita at the Lindo Mar resort for over 10 years! It sits on these beautiful tidal pools and is built into a series of elevated levels around trees growing in the restaurant. The food is simple and very good. I especially recommend the traditional and unbelievably popular Sunday brunch and lunches any day. You will see a mix of locals with families, mansion owners from the Conchas China area, and repeat tourists [like us!] The views are stunning and many times we have seen whales and dolphins go right by!
Jesus the restaurant manager [we met us at a different hotel restaurant he managed years ago] always makes everyone feel welcome and important. The staff is very friendly and some have been there for years & always recognize you!! Make this a definate destination when in PV!!

We spent 4 days next door to the LaPlayita, a happy chance! We became known to the excellent wait staff, as we appeared for most breakfasts, late lunches and a few dinners. With twice daily happy hours, our selections were hurried to us. We skipped the weekend bunch, because of the crowd, and joined the many Mexican families at the semi secluded beach. The view, at Sunset can't be beat. It was here at La Playita that we decided to start our Official Self Guided Tortilla Soup Tour, with an off hand remark from Saul, our waiter. The tortilla soup is good, but lacking something. I make better at home! The Elote soup is devine, creamy and full flavored. We well be returning to the neighborhood again, and will try the weekend buffet at some point.

Such a quaint, clean and welcoming spot. Ask for Roberto, he serves with a smile, skill and humor. The chef will make sure you get what you want and the food is delicious and fresh. The view is so pretty and relaxing, even coming for margaritas is worth it. Plus the margaritas are yummy. We ate here every day of our vacation. Try the breakfast buffet on the weekend. Homemade and fresh tortillas are to die for! Eat here!!

Relax and stay a while. Seasoned waiters provide excellent service, in this relaxed atmosphere. Sunday Brunch Buffet is good value, popular with locals, be prepared to wait, (no reservations taken) ,wait until 1:00 for regular menu, or pick another day.
