With a great location by the sea and live music, this makes a lovely bar to relax at after your evening meal. Whether your tipple is gin or wine, you'll enjoy the experience. We even encountered a raccoon, who was out for an evening stroll on the beach.

We "fell" on the place by accident, and that was a lucky fall! Remember that feeling form this restaurant inside the "Pirates of the Caribeans" attraction in Disney parks? Well here you get the real thing! Eating in front of the sea, on the sand, under feary litted coconut trees, with real band good music... What could one ask more?... More

We seemed to have stayed lost in Playa, but each time we stumbled upon a good restaurant. We found Zenzi while looking for Lido. It was loud, with a live band, lovely lights and lots of people. It was dark so we couldn't really see the beach. My husband had a blackened tuna burger which he still talked about the... More

Location is great. We sat right on the beach, toes in the sand. They took down the umbrellas to allow a great view around 4:45pm. The coconut shrimp were amazing, too. Hot and fresh. The rest of the food was ok, but nothing special. It was a little expensive, but you're definitely paying for the location and ambiance as much... More

Cool concept beach club. Some city hotels give coupons for 10%off food and drink. The beach beds are thick pads on a wood platform on the sand, they sit really low. There's a canopy over the beds held up by sticks, very cool. First come first served with beach food and drink service. There's no charge but you do need... More

Our driver had some trouble finding Zenzi but we were glad he did! Our group was greeted warmly and seated at tables on the beach. They took great care to make sure umbrellas protected us from the hot sun. The beer was cold and the food was tasty. My ceviche was beautifully presented and very tasty- bits of mango made... More
