We almost walked past this place in the hustle of the street. But we were very pleasantly surprised by the excellent service and food. Portions were too large to finish and prices were reasonable. A little oasis in the chaos of "5th Avenue".

We always use this venue when we visit the area, and there is two venues on 5th avenue one at each end, so we cn use both in one visit.

The food was normal (which for playa means: sub standard). Service was bad! Although you will likely see it packed with people, I believe that is due to location and decor, but not to returning costumers. One of the things that make my Mexico dining...More
