“Delicious Tacos - fun ambiance - great price!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for something reasonably priced, near the 5th Avenue shopping area, and trip advisor didn't lead us astray. The ambiance was fun, with waiters balancing drinks on their heads, pretending to spill things, and playing other harmless, but funny, jokes to keep the evening light. We ordered the chicken tacos and the tacos del pastor - and both were amazing. Overall, for the price, proximity to everything else, and quality of food and service, you can't go wrong here!

“Pasta that melts in your mouth”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Try the homemade fetuccini - it literally melts in your mouth. We wandered into the restaurant when we couldn't find our planned restaurant, and were we lucky! We will go back on our next trip for sure!

“Nothing Special, Good Place to Try”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great menu selection, however was a little overpriced for what it was. Large portions made for a happy family and the environment was excellent. As noted in the review title, definitely nothing special but worth a try and not a bad dinner. Also, take advantage of the free wifi :)

“The best meal we've had in Playa”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Excellent food and service! The best meal we've had in Playa. Good prices also. The wait staff was entertaining and the complementary "dessert": tequila shot with lime slice sprinkled with sugar and coffee grounds was nice!

“Good stuff”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Yummy food, great atmosphere and service. I liked how the waiters walked with the drinks on their heads. I would have definitely dropped them if I had to do it! Good times
