I've been here a number of times and I'm never disappointed! Its a great place to bring friends to try something delicious and unique. I'm already looking forward to my next visit. I was there on a recent Saturday evening at 5:30 and had to wonder, though, why the hostess felt compelled to inform me that my table was booked at 7:30. It felt rather rude and unwelcoming. I have no control over the efficiency of your kitchen or servers. There must be a better way. A sign? A note on your website?

Best Mexican restaurant ever in my opinion. Homemade hot sauces, crema, and tortillas. Absolutely delicious. Will come back. Excellent service and food is to die for.

We had a wonderful time dinning here. The drinks were decent, the tacos were really good. I got the steak enchiladas, it was good but I liked the variety better for tacos. Looking forward to coming back.

Amazing food! The grilled corn was so delicious. We all enjoyed the burritos and enchilladas a lot. Great to see multiple vegetarian options.The service was very attentive and friendly. (The only improvement would be the bathrooms could use an update.)

We used to go to their location "Cafeteria" on College and it was of our favourites for the food, atmosphere and amazing staff.. it was closed and we searched out the next nearest location ... and they are equally wonderful. The staff are always attentive, but not overly so, friendly and really nice. The food is always amazing and this will be among our new faves.

We had a great experience We had a beef appetizer and tacos - all of which were flavorful. The margs and our waiter Jan rounded out this experience. We made reservations and I would recommend this fro Saturday night. This can also be done on line

Our host was really lovely and we had a great time in that restaurant. I love the taste of every dish we ordered. Try their Taco grilled fish and the short rib for sure.

Staff was super helpful. Had some people last minute call asking if they could join us. I talk to the hostess and she was able to help us out quite a bit, not just with extra seats but an extra table as well so we weren't cramped. Great location great food.

I keep returning to this restaurant for the food. I recommended this place to coworkers because of this but was very disappointed with the service. Our server left a rather bad taste even though the food was delicious. Several of my coworkers had remarked they felt our server to be extremely condescending and sarcastic. It makes me think twice about returning which is a shame because everyone else was quite lovely. I do want to comment that I appreciate they took our reservation for 10 people on short notice and even informed us in advance that they had a booking soon after ours which many restaurants don't do and surprise you with this while you're eating. Great food as usual but perhaps reminding the staff to not talk down to customers is a good idea.

Playa was awesome as usual, service and food were excellent but it was FREEZING! Everyone had their jackets on, some people even wore their hats. The servers all had sweaters on too. Apparently their heating broke in the spring and they never fixed it. Hopefully they fix the heating soon!

On the cons. Find the music a bit on the tacky side and it’s super loud so hard to ignore it. On the pros the margaritas are excellent as are the short rib and shrimp tacos- A1.
