Unlike another review I was not hussled up here and tip was not hidden in the price. Steak was cooked perfect and the waiter was polite and attentive. Shame so many tourists miss good local places like this.

We came here our first night in Playa, so it is hard to make a comparison. It was mid-week, not busy, so we had attentive waiters. Chicken Caesar salad was made table side, and honestly, the best of what we had. Food was good, lots...More

Dined here for lunch and it was thoroughly decent! Daughter raved about her fajitas, my wife's burger was passable and my burrito was good. Had a couple of cocktails, which were delivered on the waiter's head (see photo) and a couple of beers. Really authentic...More
