Authentic Mexican food. Great chips and salsa (just the right amount of heat). Try the steak fajitas, you won't be disappointed. The mariachi band was very entertain as well.

When we had lunch there were a number of tourists from China having a great time being photographed with the six piece mariachi band,... More

Value for money here. Food was really good and the service was great as well. I really enjoyed this place for lunch and I would go there if I was in Tijuana again

We ordered Tacos. All the plates of other choices that passed by us looked good too, but the handmade tortillas that our tacos were wrapped in were simply the best I have ever tasted. So whatever you order, get at least one taco too! The staff was friendly, the place was clean but... Oddly, they ran out of Cheese?... at... More

I had a dinner by myself. The restaurant was spacious, but there were no guests except me in the restaurant on Sunday evening. I had Ceviche as appetizer, but I could not find the fish in ceviche and it was not tasty anyway. For main course, I had Mexican Plate including beef steak as my server recommended me to try...

We have eaten at La Placita 4 times this week. It is comfortable, has good typical food and clean banos. The papaya with lime and the fresh tortillas with some breakfasts are great.

Very nice place, good food, friendly staff, they are open from early in the morning to very late at night. Decent coffee, which is quite rare here.

The food was delicious and the service was even more impressive. We were enthusiastically greeted by someone at the door that I thought was the manager or owner. He quickly seated our group of 8 and took drinks right away and served us for the rest of the evening. He took our drinks first (I asked for a margarita that... More
