The service was very bad with the waiters pushing for us to order and not being very helpful or patient. The lobster was overcooked. The steak was raw, we asked to cook again and they served it hard as a shoe and then they blamed it on us.

Good morning, I am the manager and chef of the restaurant, I have no knowledge or recollection of such a situation or problem as you describe it. Are you sure it's all in my restaurant? cordially More

We had a dinner with our 3 kids. Very nice location and bar, clean and well decorated. Excellent selection of fish and well presented plate. Quality and task was excellent. Drinks/cocktail were also very good. Not cheap though, count 220 euro 5 pax with drinks & dessert. But worth the money.

Everything was great, we started with a pic pic plate then I had a plate with lobster, tuna and tartar. My friend had the crab coco and we were amazed to see how the dishes look good and how the food was delicious. We had a great night there, thank you la playa!

We ate at La Playa twice during our recent stay in Marie-Galante and had a wonderful time. Jerome and Colomba, along with their staff, will take great care of you. Highlights were the grilled Langouste with vanilla sauce, and La Zarzuela, a delicious seafood pot for two. The Zarzuela was full of langouste, crab, ouassous, mussels and a local white... More

Local sea food with Spanish set up (not only) because of the Spanish chef as we was informed by the operating personnel. The staff was very professional and helpful with guidance throuhg the menu (even in English ;-). The French Chardonnay suprisingly very good, although we should have started with a lighter option. Merci beaucoup!

This restaurant is located on the main road on the west side of Capesterre in front of the beautiful Plage La Feuillere. Excellent restaurant with very friendly hands-on service by the Owner and Staff (Nina, Theresa, Marine). We had the excellent mixed appetizer sharing plate followed by the fantastic Main Shellfish dish (langouste (spiny lobster), cigale de mer (flat lobster)... More
