Just to read the menu is a delight in itself. Food was good and if you like hot stuff try any of their sauces. Drawback...12 shrimp any style WAY TOO pricey for the size of the shrimp.

Stumbled upon this place when looking for a bite to eat for lunch. The upstairs patio is what caught our eye and we were so happy it did. The food was excellent. I agree with others that the menu is overwhelming. We asked our waitress for recommendations and ended up with the fried pork nuggets as an appetizer (never would have ordered on our own) and shared the lobster and bacon Mexican pizza. Both were delicious. Not one to order pizza when on vacation is Mexico but this was like nothing I've had in the states. The lobster was cooked perfectly and the flavors were well balanced. Loved all the different hot sauces - we tried all 8! Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for something a little different.

A new restaurant in Playa. It came recommended by friends and I wanted to like it. Unfortunately, there wasn't too much about it that I did like. We were a party of 4 on a quiet Wed. night in August. I found the menu fussy: there was too much on it and it was too confusing. Our waiter was inexperienced and was of no assistance. It took him some serious convincing when one of us wanted to order a pizza that had half the ingredients from one on the menu and one ingredient added to it that we knew was available because it was on another pizza on the menu. He simply couldn't get his head around how this had to be possible, and they could simply charge us whatever they wanted. We did sort that out in the end but it took a lot of work. Our appetizer came with 11 different sauces, which made our table crowded and gave us the impression that the restaurant does not know what it wanted to be. Even if we had wanted to try them all we had fewer that 11 pieces in our appetizer. . .The most disappointing thing is that our meals all arrived at different times. The 4th person was served 25 minutes after the 1st so we all had to watch each other eat. And while some of the food was tasty, a lot of it was overly salty. In my opinion, the restaurant needs to simplify its menu, focus on making fewer things but making them well, and training its staff. I'm sorry to say I can't recommend it when there are so many restaurants in Playa that are just so much better.

Happened upon this spot and glad we did. Javier one of the chefs waited on us and loved to describe his unique flavorful dishes. Lobster pizza ( which was on a crispy tortilla) was great. Also had a guacamole with small chunks of steak which was delicious. Tried a bunch of different tacos and all were yummy and a little edgy. Casual funky fun and cool dishes. One of our favorite meals!!
