Met up with friends and we decided to come here. The beef and chicken tacos are the best I had in Playa (for real!) and the shrimp/papaya salad was also very good. As I said, it was a very pleasant surprise!

It was raining and unfortunately we had to eat inside. The restaurant interior could be very much better by very small changes. It does not have a soul now. The food is fair, good price. The service is perfect, they are very kind.
