“Great fish taco supreme”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I have been to the place twice and specifically came back for the fish taco supreme. It is delicious - served open faced and full of flavor. However, both times the service was very poor. The server behind the cash register was unfriendly. Might go back for that taco again, but they need to improve their service. We saw a couple stand in line to order and finally decide to leave because they were being ignored for so long.

“Mexican close to the beach”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

La Playa is a small place located in a strip mall on a frontage road to PCH in Pacifica. The staff was friendly and they have a small bar area in the back with a full bar that the local young people hang out in in the evening. The food was not exciting. I had the flautas. They came with guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo but the pork was not flavorful and had dried out during cooking on the ends of the flautas. My dinner came with beans and rice. The beans were not refried but had good flavor. They also served complementary chips and blended fresh salsa that had excellent flavor.

“Great food, casual atmosphere”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We asked two Mexican ladies at our hotel to recommend their favorite Mexican restaurant and they both picked this one. Order at the cash register, bar in the back, clean but plain furnishings. The food was fresh and delicious and the servings were generous. The margaritas were really good (and strong!) My husband had steak fajitas which were juicy and flavorful, and I had the chicken tostada which was good to the last bite. If you're in Pacifica and want Mexican food, this is the place to go!
