We followed the reviews from its former location here and figured we couldn't lose, but unfortunately we felt a little disappointed by this place. The service was EXCELLENT, I will start by saying that. The place was empty, sure, but we were still flanked by what seemed like every server in the joint. I'm not the best Spanish speaker but I read and understand a lot; when I said as much I liked that they continued to speak to me in Spanish and humored my poor replies. Necesito practicar! A single server brought our mineral water and a Mai Tai out stacked on his head - what an awesome touch!
My bf loves appetizers for his meal and got the beef satay and coconut shrimp. The beef was eh. Pretty stringy and without any semblance of a typical peanut sauce which would have been an improvement I think. The rice that came with the shrimp was great. The shrimp itself was good but thickly battered which was unexpected and not as good as other styles we've had.
I ordered the 8oz skirt steak which compared to the rest of the menu was a reasonable $195MX. It was decent but honestly I have had much better skirt steaks in the US. It was passable but nothing special.
We wouldn't return here for what we spent. There are so many other places in Playa where you can eat like a king for under $50 USD. Maybe the empty restaurant was a sign beyond the location as you can feel things drop off somewhere around calle 28 or 30 anyway. We thought it was just the lack of people in the area but based on our experience the food is really not as good as the reviews for the old location said it was.
