“Go to for Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Ate breakfast there 3 times. Many types of omelets (all good) served with coffee, juice, hash browns and salad with a bottled water to go. Total cost including tip was about $11 US. Great value!!

“Far better than we expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Wow - talk about understated!

Just off 5th, we only really went here because we were staying nearby and it was raining really hard. We're so glad we did!

Main courses only (we were brought nachos and sals habanero first on the house) and boy were they good. I had the fillet mignonette and my wife a sea bass done in garlic sauce. Both were of a quality I wouldn't have believed and were amazing. A good Malbec went so well and, unlike some places in the vicinity, the service was honest, attentive and they cared what you thought.

To say its in such close proximity to fifth, this place is a cut above and is highly recommended.

“Great food and convenient location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This little find was because of TripAdvisor and I couldn't be more happy that we found this place when searching for places near 5th Avenue. Very intimate setting, great people, great food, great everything! We will be back!

“Superb Fish Tacos!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

My husband and I went into PDC one afternoon while staying in Playa Paraiso. Since this was our first trip to PDC we had a bit of difficulty finding the restaurant. We went under the recommendation of a fellow guest at our resort and our glad we did. The fish tacos were amazing! We had the fish grilled with the corn tortillas. Loved all the sauces that accompany the dish. Well worth the trip into town!

“Just about anything eatable...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Yesterday, we walked again a few blocks to La Fragata. The specials are probably the best for the prize in all of Playa. The fish tacos are not your usual thin bit of filet... but a nice 1 inch thickness, served with fresh veggies on a tortilla... We started with a smooth gazpacho [super fresh], then the fish tacos, and a heavenly desert: isla flotanda [floating island?] I need to know how to do this and make it look as beautiful, but it cannot taste the same as in this smiling atmosphere.
