I have seen this restaurant for years but have never stopped in because I'm trying t get on the ferry. I made a stop in at Christmas because of a boat delay. It was late and I walked in and they were closed. I turned to walk out and the lady asked what I would like. I didn't want to... More

The location of this restaurant is excellent as far as waiting for the West Seattle ferry. You can leave your car in the ferry line and walk over to the restaurant. We had a little over an hour to wait so we walked over. There was one cook and one server. There were about 8 people all together in the... More

What a great location - right by the ferry dock! You can get on the ferry in West Seattle Fauntleroy, the get off on Vashon and walk to the end of the ferry dock and enter the restaurant! What a fun date, or family event for dinner: boat ride, dinner and view of Seattle. Like I said, I really want... More

this is our favorite Mexican restaurant on the island! The owner is very friendly and accommodating! I have tried nearly everything on the menu and have never had a bad meal! I love their tortilla soup!

I love this place. I like the carna Asada. I will drive right past the other Mexican place to go here. Great service. Great Mexican food. There is no bigger margarita anywhere. If we want Mexican food this is where I go.

Simple, tasty, authentic Mexican food. This is an older establishment, with a million dollar view. The food is always fast, flavorful and affordable. They have some of the best Margarita's around. If your grabbing take-out while waiting for the Ferry, or wanting a sit down meal in an easy family atmosphere -you taste buds will be happy.

Nothing to rave about the food, prices were kind of high for the quality. Drinks are expensive but the location is great.

Like many others we were here while waiting for a ferry. Had drinks and guacamole and chips. The chips were hot and fresh, guacamole was plentiful for the price and had good flavor. Margarita was good. Service was very friendly. Overall a good experience.

We walked off the ferry just after lunchtime to this little hidden restaurant. The food was very good and the Margaritas were even better. I had the Chicken Mole with rice and beans which I would definitely recommend. I think they could use some imagination and effort to improve the decor, but the end result was a good experience.

We like to take a break from Casa Bonita and make the drive to the North End for dinner at LaPlaya on the deck. The food is your standard Americanized Mexican Style. Everything you've had before. There are very large portions that can be shared easily. They are often very busy and if you ask for more of something like... More
