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.

I was disappointed when my request for the seat in the window was not honoured in my online reservation. It was clear that it had not been read on the day we came for lunch. The octopus taco (Punta), was not as good as on our first dining experience (over cooked). The young waiter was really good, as was the guacamole! It's a very noisy restaurant, music a bit loud, and then people having to speak loudly.. Not sure we'll be back.

It's pretty loud in there and I find the seats uncomfortable. The food was decent, definitely more like tex-mex than mexican.

It’s always a treat to visit my brother in To, and have dinner at Playa with his family. We love the vibe, the decor, the Tacos and the Tequila! Our waitress was welcoming, helpful and always not far away. Once again a very enjoyable dinner and experience.

Food was absolutely amazing, never disappointing. The restaurant really needs to have an option to hang jackets especially with the winter months coming. All of our chairs had an unfortunate “wobble”. Other than that, had a wonderful time!
