We chose this restaurant after doing our research on the PDC forum. Could not have been happier. The restaurant was very busy went we arrived but the hostess asked for our name and told us we could be seated in 30 minutes. We wandered 5th for this amount of time and when we returned she remembered our name and seated us immediately. We chose a combination platter which had a fair amount of 7 different meats with beans, rice and of course tortillas. Delicious! Service was excellent and unrushed - topped off with a complimentary shot of excellent tequila.

Have eaten here every year we have come to Playa and we have never been disappointed. It is definitely a good place to stop and try. Price, quality, and quantity make for a pleasant dining experience. Try it, you'll like it.

Authentic, fair priced food. Appetizers, meal and margaritas for (2) cost us about $32 total. The downtown stroll to get to it is great and it takes awhile because you A.D.D. from the variety of shops and establishments. It's okay to get distracted though, you're on vacation.

I made a list of all the top rated restaurants in Playa & made my way through them on our two week holiday.

THIS is brilliant. The entree's, mains, drinks & service was top rated. It has been not only the best Mexican in Playa but anywhere I've had in the world!

The pork nachos (not your usual beef) was scrumptious!

Cocktails are yummy too!
