We were worn out and looking for a late night meal. This place did not disappoint! Delicious, one of a kind, and giant hamburgers. The fries are some of the best I have ever had. Our vegetarian friend went to another restaurant across the street because there were little to no meat free options available, but hey, his loss!

La Playita serves delicious shrimp tacos. My husband had the shrimp with pasta in a red sauce which was amazing (I’m trying to keep away from pasta but I couldn’t resist trying it and taking more!). The tamarind shrimp are good, but I prefer the shrimp tacos. They give you tortilla chips to start, as well as 6 different sauces... More

The tocos were great and the fish fillet was fresh tasting. A quart size mug draft beer was less than $6 usd. We will return to this place for another good time.

I had the pleasure of finding this jewel in Centro Cancun. The restaurant is located off the hotel zone but well worth the 15 minute travel away from the hotel zone. The chef gave time and attention to the food, everything is fresh and it showed the in appearance and taste. The service was awesome and the staff is happy... More

We wanted seafood and a place where the locals went to get their best meals. It also turned out this restaurant was around the corner from our hotel. I was told about the pineapple with a curry / coconut sauce filled with seafood. WOW...it was one of the most unique dishes I've ever had and it was delicious. My boyfriend... More

The Bull Ring spots were crowded so we stopped across the street for a quick mojito and stayed for dinner. What a great surprise. The drinks were good and the food delicious. We could even hear the music from the concert at the Plaza De Torres across the street. Everyone was more than happy with their meal. Really, they had... More

I travelled to Cancun with a group of friends. After spending the first few days in our Hotel, we were keen to get out of Hotel Zone to explore the rest of Cancun. We went to La Playita on the recommendation of our concierge and had a great time! The place was full of locals and also a few other... More
