Nice, relaxing, friendly staff, good size portions and tasty and well priced. Looks like a little hole in the wall, but nice view of the beach. Sit on patio.

Great Mexican food. Loved the salsa! The atmosphere is welcoming and the food fresh and delicious. The waitress offered good advice on food options. Can recommend the Fahita which comes sizzling to your table.

Love the atmosphere at this local treasure. Mexican Breakfasts are the best. Had lunch and the combination plate was amazing. Shredded chicken enchiladas and chili relleno are full of chicken. Excellent. Mimosas for $4. Really.

I lived and worked in Hermosa for the past 4 years and La Playita was my go-to for Mexican food. Nothing fancy, just plain good Mexican dishes. The outdoor seating is very nice, with the birds chirping, a view of the "park" and the beach....More
