The small comfortable restaurant is decorated very nice and the atmosphere is perfect- calm amd serine. The service is 5 stars and the food is beyond that in my opionion.

This was one of the best meals I had during my 3 weeks in Mexico, and I had some incredible meals, including a culinary cooking course! It's small, so book ahead if you can, and not overly fancy or pretentious, but the service and the food is exceptional. Fantastic value for money.

Really a perfect dinning experience for my family & me.
Four orders of the Butter Tuna & everyone loved it. Two orders of the fillet & both said it was the best steak they ever had.
From the gracious owners to the perfectly clean kitchen, to the outstanding food.. this was a 10 across the board. We have not been in Playa for 3 years & there seems to be a new King & Queen in town & they're name is Oh-La-La

First of all make a reservation if you intend on going here as it books out quickly. The restaurant is what you want if you are looking for something fancier than the other areas of Playa. The menu is slightly strange with several starters consisting of salad and curry mixed into an otherwise classy mains section but the food is top notch. We ordered the antipasto to share for starter after our server recommended it. It came out on a rustic wooden platter and consisted of local cheeses and prosciutto, flatbread, cranberries etc which all complemented each other wonderfully. For main my wife chose the chicken curry with rice, I went for the lobster and grouper special in a creamy garlic sauce with olive oil mash potato and we opted for a side of roasted veg. All of the main was delectable and the whole time we had someone topping up our drinks and attending our table in a discrete manner. We wound up the evening sharing a white chocolate cheesecake which we devoured in a mere moment and this was accompanied by a cappuccino and a black label scotch for myself (the only scotch they had unfortunately). All in all a touch of class to an otherwise mundane restaurant scene.
