“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

We found this place by chance in a quiet street off the beaten track. It's only been open since Jan 2014 and a already a great find. the food is tasty, the location a welcome change from the otherwise rather busy places. the owners are most pleasant and the food (paella, a nice piece of meat and a tortilla for starters) really good. we can thoroughly recommend the place.

“A real find in Playa”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

My partner and I went exploring some of the streets off of 5th Avenue and we saw this place. It looked inviting and we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did as the food is wonderful, the service is warm and the atmosphere is relaxed. Our server was a young Italian woman who spoke even less English than we know Spanish but we made it all work and had fun doing so. Because the restaurant is off the beaten path they seem to be trying harder and the prices are far less than what you would expect. We will definitely make a point to visit here when we are next in Playa.

“out of the way gem”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

we come to playa and stay for several months at a time so we look for places off fifth ave.This was a total surprise for quality and service.We went on a Wednesday night thinking it would be quite they did a steady business and had a table ready for a large party booking.Jamie Escobar is from Spain and made excellent recommendations of what to eat.He was personable,friendly and we talked about the difficulties of supply in playa for his type of restaurant.We will return to enjoy a variety of his tapas specialties.
