Beautifully situated beachfront with some tables in the sand and some in the open air restaurant. The lobster taquitos appetizer was amazing as well as the octopus. I enjoyed the special which was a giant plater of crawfish in a red sauce. This was a high priced place for us, but worth it for a special occasion. I give it... More

This was our second time in two years to La Playita, and the setting remains outstanding - overlooking the rocks and crashing waves, sometimes oyster fishermen bring their catch in right below the restaurant - terrific seaside ambiance. The food is fine, the service was - and remains - fairly indifferent.

We enjoyed the Conchas Chinas area so much. The kids loved hunting for shells and the water and sand were inviting in the coves for swimming. We were hit and tired when we came upon the Lindo Mar hotel's restaurant. They were very accommodating for our group of 9. We got a beautiful table right next to the edge with... More

You can't beat the ocean views of this place and the sunsets are incredible. It gets a 10 on that account! So, so for dinner, although the shrimps wrapped in bacon are pretty delicious, even though they are not on the menu. They are called Shrimp Deborah. This is the place though for guacamole and salsa with shrimps and the... More

After leaving the airport, stopping for groceries at Mega, arriving at our Conchas Chinas condo & changing out of our northern clothes into something more suitable for the warm afternoon, it was time for our first Happy Hour at La Playita at the beach front Lindo Mar Hotel. A warm breeze caressed us as we sipped our drinks and enjoyed... More

We were not staying at the resort, but had been told the restaurant was nice. Stopped in, took elevator down to restaurant level and enjoyed good food, friendly service and nice views. The food selection was very good and the prices reasonable.

We come to La Playita, even when not staying where it's located. Always enjoyable. We stayed at Lindo Mar recently so ate at La Playita several times. Also enjoyed the Happy Hours (noon to 1pm and 5-6pm), usually along with a meal. Three of our dining experiences were shared with good friends. Everyone was happy with their food. Breakfast, lunch...
