We stumbled upon this place after searching for another restaurant that was closed. We decided to give it a go because there were lots of patrons dining there and no one was shouting at us to eat there when we walked by (which is part of my criteria while dining in Mexico...well, anywhere for that matter). Service was nice, breakfast... More

Come back in Playa! Directly from Italy, so this is my first dinner of this holyday. Service is good and waiters are fast. I've taste some mexican plates (like Fajitas) and the response is positive. Prices is little high but portions are big and "yummy".

If your looking for awesome fish taco's go here. We ate here 3-4 time during our stay because of the tacos and the price/specials.

We did not dine here, but stopped here for mojitos while we were strolling Quinta. The drinks were delicious and the street-side patio is perfect for relaxing and people watching. They will bring you a little plate of appetizers like nuts, cheese, sausage, with the drinks.

La Vagabunda has a three course/one price meal for 149 pesos which changes every couple of days. The day we were there our choices included cauliflower soup or salad (my soup was great) Vegetarian Fajitas, Chicken Enchiladas or some kind of a spicy fish with vegetables (I chose the fish and it was perfect) For dessert you could choose ice...

The North end location is great for breakfast - good food, well priced and fun waiters. Dinner is different in all respects for some reason...
