I must say ( and Im rather picky on food) that this restaurant has excellent food. I just ate there. The waiter and owner are very nice, the prices are not high, and the taste of what I ordered took me back to Greece.
I had tsasiki, the aubergine cream, a chiken gyros and greek salad, and a bottle of water. Total 225 pesos.
Very reasonable, considering that they also use ingredients which are not cheap to buy ( feta cheese, big green olives and olive oil, great bread, oven backed and thick). I really liked it, and will be back. The gyros was only 40 pesos, and I couldn't eat 2 at the same time.

very good, I will recommend it to anyone, and I hope it will stay open for as long as ever...

Just ate here again the other night...SO yummy..and even tastier than I remember the last time. We had the mixed platter of dips and gamberi saganaki for appy's (ok I'm not a fan of licorice/ouzo which was in the shrimp dish....so I personally didn't care for that one, but it got scoffed with enthusiasm from the anise lovers!). Fresh homemade bread, a very delicious green salad with dill vinaigrette and stuffed shrimp (feta/tomato/chile) wrapped in filo, and the pollo gyros. All delicious. They now do delivery also and are open daily.

Well worth the jaunt into Playacar imho if you're a northerner

The Bistro next door has closed its doors - guy moved back to Texas to open it there.

Estia is located in Playacar - the Pakal Plaza by the Oxxo where there are a couple of other tiny food places, near the Playacar office

You guys made me so hungry with all of this talk about Greek food that I went to a Greek restaurant in Boca for dinner last night. GYROVILLE was the name of the place in Glades Plaza. I started out with their Greek salad with romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, red onions, feta cheese and dolmades............$3.99 . And then I had the Zeus billed as "Triple the meat! triple the fun"........... which was Gyro, pork souvlaki and chicken souvlaki on a pita with tomatoes, red onion and tzatziki..........$6.79. Both were excellent....and well worth the low price. The bad: NO ALCOHOL served.
Had been to a new sushi/Asian restaurant, Shin-Ju, in Boca for the last two days so it was time for a change!
ANNA, here is the menus for both places .

EDIT: Now sushi three days. Lunch twice and dinner once. Could not resist going back for sushi at lunch today.

Don't know Playacar that well, if we entered at the entrance by Hospiten, which way do I go?

You have to ask the guards where the OXXO at PAKAL is. The restaurant is right next to Oxxo, blue tablecloths.
YUM!!!!

If you entered there, you'd have to go straight, then take the roundabout you come to around to the left, until you come to the Oxxo on your right, which is next door to the restaurant.
