A place like this shouldn't exist. In other country would be banned for breaking the simple rule of igiene. In the back of an apparent typical local touristic restaurant is hiding a dirty kitchen, which I was able to see, with low quality food. The...More

We had a lovey dinner here a few days ago. Our server, I unfortunately don't remember his name, but he was from Europe and just as attentive as could be. He turned extra fans on us, brought over a little bench for my husbands hat,...More

Prices are relatively high, food is varied. Large portions, fast and professional service. Music and musicians in place. The atmosphere is relaxed and European.

From the coffee to the juice, terrible. As an example, the juice was tang with juice mixed in. Very nice servers--the only positive.

While visiting Playa we were strolling down 5av and noticed Mandarina's. We decided to give it a try. Should have known something since this place only had a few tables filled. It was one of those meals that I couldn't wait to be over. The...More

Eating here was literally like a horrible wedding.... it was worse than the pasta station at a cocktail hour. When my fathers food came, my mom said "that looks awful." It was. Gelatinous would have been good compared to the pasta my aunt received. It...More
