¡Bienvenido a Playa Mesa!

Inspired by the flavors synonymous with coastal Baja and mainland Mexico, Playa Mesa brings a refreshing approach to authentic Mexican food and drink. The menu draws from chef Rolando’s travels and personal experiences throughout Mexico, including Ensenada, Jalisco, Michoacán, and Oaxaca, using the same type of farm-fresh ingredients and cooking methods passed down for generations. Just like the handmade tortillas, which arrive at your table hot off the comal.

More than just a Mexican kitchen, Playa Mesa is a vibrant and inviting retreat with a tranquil south of the border ambiance that will leave all of your troubles at the door. In addition to refreshing cocktails crafted from Agave spirits, select Mexican lagers and hand-picked Spanish, Central and South American wines, the bar is stocked with over 50 bottles of premium Tequila and smoky mezcal worthy of savory sipping.

Comer con familia! We proudly serve lunch and dinner daily, weekend brunch and weekday Happy Hour. Whether relaxing with friends at the bar over house margaritas or enjoying an authentic Mexican meal with family, we look forward to serving you.
