Even after chef Armandine left the area, Mar Plata used to be one of the finest restaurants on the Riviera Nayarit! Disappointingly, it has gone way down hill. We used to look forward to the wait staff bring to the table a tasty little loaf...More

Many of us got together the other night to dine and watch a great rock band. I have been to Mar Plata many times and always enjoy the whole experience. This night was awesome..... Great music- beyond what we had expected and the food and...More

We really like this restaurant because it's elegant and the food is great. Unfortunately, we had to endure overwhelming and painful noise from a rock and roll band our first night there (hence a 4 rating rather than a 5). While the R&R band drew...More
