One of the best Mexican restaurants in the area often gets overlooked. La Playita is about a half a blog from the Hermosa Beach Pier and provides some of the best food in the city. The mellow atmosphere, mixed with great food and margaritas makes this an excellent place for those looking to discover something tasty.

Guests can enjoy dining both indoors and outdoors, as the restaurant provides a beautiful patio with the cool, ocean breeze. You can see the blue ocean from the restaurant and with La Playita recently getting their full liquor license; this is a great place for a Margarita. They provide some of the best complimentary chips and salsa you will find and the menu is packed with incredible choices.

Authentic Mexican food is served in generous portions at La Playita. Not only do they provide a great lunch and dinner service, but you can also stop in for breakfast, which is one of the most popular in the area. The fish tacos are some of the best you will find along the Pacific coast and the Chicken Ranchero Enchiladas are incredible.

As you look up and down the menu, you will notice many traditional dishes, along with a few unique choices. The steak nachos are a local favorite and many stop in during the happy hour for a drink and an appetizer.

This casual restaurant provides beach-goers with a great choice, relaxing atmosphere and so much more. If you're looking for a great place for your next date, La Playita should be at the top of your list.

They accept reservations for larger parties and are open Tuesday through Sunday. You can find the restaurant located at 37 14th Street in Hermosa Beach.
