“Nice little bar on the beach”
Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Great bar right on the beach. Great to drink a nice cool xx beer as the sun goes down.
Live bands add to the atmosphere.
Only thing is that it is quite pricey compared to the other bars in the area but well worth a visit

“Not that great and a bit overpriced”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We visited here twice: the first time for drinks and appetizers in the evening and the second time for drinks in the afternoon.

We had the tuna tostada and the coconut shrimp for appetizers. Although the tuna was considered to be sushi grade tuna, it tasted like a fine can of tuna fish. We were very disappointed with it. The coconut shrimp was decent - not great, but not bad either.

The service was basically average.

Overall, we felt that it was overpriced for what we received; subpar food and average service. The location is great and they have nice beach chairs/lounge chairs.

We ate here several years ago (on many occasions) and remembered the food being much better than it was this last time we visited.

“The best in Playa”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

We stopped for a drink in the early evening and listen to the live music. The next day we went back for lunch. Wow, the food, drinks and service was amazing. We were then offered use of the beach loungers. Will definitely make this a must stop place when we are in Mexico.

“Great New Year Party”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Stunning location on the beach. Great atmosphere. The food is really excellent. We had a great New Year Party! This is the place if you want to just relax on the beach but treated with 5 star playa service.
