Love the atmosphere and the drink specials. We were looking for an air conditioned bar while staying La Pasion and came across La Taberna. Great people and family-friendly and good food.

Very much fashioned after a US-style sports bar, but still had a decent number of local patrons, we wandered into La Taberna to watch Game 7 of the World Series.

Great place, good food and cheap cerveza. The place was packed with locals and the prices are really great for a place so close to fifth Avenue. We found this gem last trip to Playa, and it did not disappoint this trip.
