The margaritas here are to die for, not to pricey either. The food was nice but not amazing. The down side was that it was only Luke warm. This rating is for the overall experience but with so many other options we won't be returning

Food and service excellent, our waiter Galindo was very good, making sure we understood the menu, and making us feel at ease in new surroundings. Would definately recommend this resturant.

This was fantastic. Our server was great! He took care of us by serving us our margaritas as 2x1 all evening. The food was delicious. Great meal all around.

Huge variety, good coffee and super cheap. We found it on our last morning. Had we found it on day one, would have been our regular breakfast spot. Between here and 100% natural! no need to seek out any other breakfast places in Playa. What a pleasant surprise.

Great place with generous and tasty breakfasts. The pro of this place is that they can replace standard coffee in a breakfast with cappuccino or frappuccino for additional money. Waiters were very attentive. Recommended.

Our mesero (waiter) was Augusto, and he was magnificent! He helped me along with my Spanish and was able to connect with us on a personal level. I'm very impressed!

We just had the guacamole and chips, but it was taste. Restaurant had nice atmosphere too. It was poring rain so we sat under the roof rather than under umbrellas. Augusto was a great waiter too. Nice personality.

I travel to Playa each year and was impressed that Raul remembered me from years past. The restaurant is clean and recently updated. It's one of the best breakfast spots in Playa.
