“Delightful Kite boarders and SUP boarders hangout”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Playa Central is right on the beach and next to the big campground on La Ventana Bay. The owners are active professional kite boarders and have many years experience operating resort destinations. The crowd consists mostly of kite boarders and locals who like to hangout on the beach. Simple meals at reasonable prices come together with friendly staff and new friends in a happy place. For the kite boarders during the day there is a store, rental equipment, and professional instruction. For the stand up paddle boarders (SUP) there is good breakfasts and fresh baked breads and pastries for you after paddling time in the mornings. For everyone there is a huge open space and out for a cold beer, tasty cocktail, or cold bottle of water. Add a brick oven baked think crust pizza and then play shuffle board or listen to local musicians in the "open microphone lounge" when available. This is a great beach hangout!

“Reasonably good but expensive for a roadside restaurant.”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

We decided to have a break from Mexican roadside restaurants in La Ventana area. The waitstaff at Playa Central are very friendly. We had a salad, a margherita pizza and deep fried calamari. All were reasonably good. Whether you like the pizza will depend on your taste in crusts. At this restaurant it is thin and I would say average to good for thin crust pizza.

“Expensive”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

We ordered take-out pizza it was gross. The crust is like a tortilla totally soggy with minimal to non existent toppings. Total ripoff.

“Go for the shrimp pizza”
Reviewed 25 December 2011

Best thin crust, wood oven shrimp pizza I've ever had! Go for the fresh baked bread by 8 am. It's tasty!
