Stopped by here a few times during our recent visit to Playa Grande. Food is all made fresh (open style kitchen so you can see your food being prepped). Maybe the best tacos and ginger beer I’ve ever had.

Am in PG for 10 days. Very, very quiet here. Only 3-4 restaurant nearby hotel. Been here twice so far. Very good food, and plentiful. Slowish service, but that's ok.
