While I cannot say that this restaurant feels as authentically Mexican as everyone might desire, I can say that the good is top notch, and delicious, especially the guacamole, and the Chimichuri Steak, and that chicken, wow, the chicken. The chicken is certainly big enough to split with someone else, and my friend and I like to order one steak, one chicken and split them both. You won't walk away hungry. And the atmosphere is lively and fun, and the service is excellent. The prices are a bit high, however this is somewhat typical for Mill Valley.

Fresh and absolutely delicious, made right in the open kitchen. Nice outside seating area too. Great bartender and great wait staff even with the holiday crowds.

On a beautiful cold day we went for lunch to Playa. Love the decor, the space is cool, tables and chairs are a bit uncomfortable but they look great!
The food was good, not the very traditional Mexican but good.
I like the healthier options of tacos with Jicama instead of tortillas.
Good!

I was amazed at the menu selection of Tequila. Every possible top shelf brand that is pretty much out there.
Excellent happy hour crowd and ambience. Highly recommended for the best margarita in Mill Valley.
