Playa de los Artistas Review

Driftwood tables scattered along the rocky beach make this one of the most scenic, as well as one of the best, restaurants in the country, specializing in trendy Mediterranean-style seafood, meat dishes, and pizza for almost 20 years now. The decor is funky and artsy, even in the bathrooms, and every guest gets a warm welcome, thanks to the chef's gracious wife, Daniela. The restaurant is most spectacular at night, when flickering lanterns combine with crashing surf to create a dramatic and romantic dinner experience. Dishes are delicious, portions are plentiful and artistically presented on huge platters. The eclectic menu changes daily, and on weekends, Italian owner/chef Nicola fires up the barbecue. Meals are accompanied with freshly baked, savory focaccia. Don't pass up the velvety, dark-chocolate tart if it's on the dessert menu.
