We ate here several times. Service was fantastic, food was excellent. All fresh all good. Out of 6 different meals we were never disappointed. Coffee was flavourful. Price was always reasonable. We will definitely come back the next time we visit Playa.

Ate here 12/6. Had a great plate of huevos rancheros, served with a bread basket to sop the leftover sauce, and coffee. Total? 85 pesos! I'm staying in Club Yebo Hotel next door, so very convenient. Try them...you will be happy you did.

The food and service here is perfect. It's like you going home for a cooked meal. It's away from the touristy places which is what we want. I want to experience this cultural first hand and this place gives it to you!

It's not what you would consider fine dining (hence the 4/5 stars) but really, this place is awesome. Great guac, ceviches and wonderful breakfast. Beer is cheap, food is cheap but the place is cleaner than most 5 star restaurants. Lotsa local fishermen and scuba...More

Let's begin with "the locals eat here"--indeed, they do. And so do we, every time we get to Playa (at least once a year.) The food is fresh, home-style Mexican cooking, very inexpensive. The restaurant is clean, open-air and well situated near the beach, off...More

This little jewel was worth finding. The cerviche was very fresh and flavorful. They offer several different kinds. I got the house specialty which was great! They have a bar too. My husband had a meat dish which was very good as well. It is...More
