“Solid Mexican Food, Great Beach Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

La Playita is a hidden Hermosa favorite. A perfect Mexican cuisine menu at reasonable beach prices, food and service good. Nothing fancy from the menu to the setting make this a perfect place. Margarita specials at happy hour. Low key, family and friends oriented. Great views of the beach from inside and patio.

“Fantastic lunch on a beach day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here while spending the day at Hermosa Beach, and we were extremely happy that we found this place. The staff was exceedingly friendly, and the food was absolutely fantastic.

The atmosphere was very local and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling through Hermosa that wants great food and great service. Look forward to going back!

“Great place where the locals go”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
