We stopped by this mellow open (to the ocean) bar in Isla Verde for an afternoon drink. It reminded me of a hip little hotel/motel one would encounter in Montauk. The service was attentive. I would return if in the area.

My girlfriend and I went there for happy hour, and ended up staying for dinner. Great view, ocean view + breeze, and good service. The prices are average for the area, and the staff is friendlier than most places we visited that weekend.

The coco loco drink is fantastic and the food is really good too! The shrimp carbonara was absolutely fantastic and their mofongo was fantastic. Had the jalapeño poppers and calamari for appetizers and they were both very yummy

My wife and I used to go to La Playita for drinks and ocaissionally for dinner. Always enjoyed it. It has been a while since we went but went for Valentines Day.

Clean, friendly, great location and very accommodating. Located right on the water with fantastic views. Within walking distance to other establishments. The only negative is in the mornings when the staff arrives, they are really noisy while you're tring to sleep. Restaurant on premise with wonderful food. We would definitely stay here again.
