While walking, we stopped at Kool Fish to read the menu. Lobster caught my wife's eye and the Fillet Pil Pil caught mine. Our waitress (and I am going to write it incorrectly for which I apologize) Rosario was fun, funny and a real pleasure. The food was first rate and reasonably priced. The habanero sauce was incredibly good and HOT!!! I can't believe people walked by this place. If you get to Playa make sure to have a meal at Kool Fish. It is worth it.

There were 5 for a 9:00 pm meal. We were greeted by a wonderful waitress named Rocio. Her smile was very contagious. We ordered seafood paellae. It's suppose to be a dish for 2 but 3 of us ate our fill and we still took leftovers home. Another dish was Seafood in a 1/2 pineapple. My friend did not lift his head nor stop eating til the meal was finished. My brother had seafood linguini and said it too was amazing. What is important with a good meal is the ambiance. At the Kool Fish, the music wasn't loud or overpowering, our waitress who had just started her job 4 days prior was very attentive and knew the menu well. Overall an amazing dining experience and we highly recommend. The crew from Canada.

The oysters in the half shell were delish! The garlic shrimp and whole red snapper were amazing! Our waiter Jesus was very engaging and looked after us with a complimentary cocktail! The ambiance was a bit stark but overall very clean and inviting. The price point was also very good value for your money!
