“Great place where the locals go”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

La Playita is a great little Mexican restaurant where the locals go to grab a bite. It offers a good, solid Mexican menu, and a very friendly, helpful staff. You can choose to sit on the outdoor patio or inside; either location is lovely. It's one of the places I try to visit whenever I'm in town.

“Love this place!!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I just love this restaurant. Good food, good margaritas, great service, wonderful location. Everything about this place is terrific. We had dinner, breakfast, drinks in the afternoon all on different days. We stayed at the Beach House (which I've done several times) and just walked across the street to La Playita. So easy to get to and sooooooo good. I love it. Highly recommend this cozy restaurant.

“Nice Mexican cantina and refreshing margaritas.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Great Mexican cantina right next to Hermosa beach. We stayed at the beach house hotel opposite and I would recommend this for guests of the hotel because of its proximity and excellent value. The food was lovely and the service friendly and efficient. I loved the relaxed atmosphere of the place. Great margaritas too!
