When you first walk up to it, it gives the impression of a hole in the wall but don't let that fool you. The food was delicious, the ambiance was amazing, the staff-very friendly and speak English and Spanish. We had Seafood Paella, Shrimp Alfredo, and Lobster tail Risotto and all of it was very good and fresh...Lets not forget... More

Beautiful place surrounded by the sea. Comfortable shoes and clothes required. Pina colada and fruit cocktails delicious. Relax for drink and good food to share with friends. Tropical spirit.

La Playita is a total delight, a sweet little place that is so close to the water you practically get wet. Service is great and food is very nice. We ate their multiple times and were never disappointed. Highly recommended.

This a great place for drinks and tapas right in front of a wonderful patch of blue green sea! Very few places in the city have such a wonderful view.

My friend and I spend a long weekend in San Juan every year and discovered this spot last year - we were excited to head back this year and were not disappointed. It's cozy and laid back with great food and wine coupled with great oceanside views and friendly service. Antonio took great care of us and we're looking forward... More

The Food was OUTSTANDING; However the Service was not so good. Perhaps the waitress (super Friendly and Professional, but not efficient) was new or something. Therefore Service was really Slow, and I was drinking Jack Daniels' and on my third drink they were done and the waitress brought me Dewars and simply just gave it to me and walked away.... More

As soon as you sit down at the terrace you get this relaxed flip flop island feel. Good burgers, good times.

My husband and I found this little gem as per a recommendation from a friend. It was located ocean side with a fantastic view. The service was friendly and accommodating even though they were short handed that night. The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely go back if we're in San Juan again!

The view is simply outstanding!!!! We walked down to the beach for lunch, and this place didn't disappoint at all. We split the ceviche, and both had the lobster risotto for a light lunch... The risotto and the lobster were both cooked perfectly. Service was laid back and pretty attentive without rushing you.

Thank Jeff_Fl0rida
