AN AUTHENTIC MEXICAN RESTAURANT IN THE HEART OF DARLINGHURST.
Playa Takeria is real Mexican food in the bohemian inner-city suburb of Darlinghurst, Sydney. Located on Darlinghurst Road, Playa Takeria’s authentic recipes and legendary margaritas bring a little slice of paradise to the Darlinghust restaurant scene.
Inspired by the resort town of Playa Del Carmen, this Mexican restaurant fuses Caribbean vibrancy with a sense of the traditional Mexican taquerias. Hailing from Playa is our Head Chef Alejandro Urbina who has created culinary magic for over 30 years. Previously the Head Chef for the exclusive Grupo Habita Hotels in Mexico, Alejandro’s knowledge of traditional
food makes Playa Takeria the only .
Open for dinner 7-days a week, Playa Takeria dishes up all of your favourite delicacies; margaritas are free flowing and the sangria is served icy-cold. Playa’s chefs prepare all the best-loved Mexican food made to order, creating delectable cuisine from ancient recipes.
Playa Takeria also opens 6-days a week for lunch, providing inner-city dwellers with a fiesta-ready restaurant. While the staff chats away in Spanish, don your complimentary flower crown, sip your favourite cocktail and momentarily forget it’s 2pm on a Wednesday!
Playa Takeria’s drinks menu brings Mexican cantina flare to the Darlinghurst restaurant scene. Time-honored tequila and mezcal are the focus, served straight up or creating the base for your mouthwatering cocktail of choice. Our picks? You can’t go wrong with the Jalapeno margarita or the Mexico’s most popular cocktail, the Paloma. If its Mezcal you’re after, choose your poison and we’ll dish it up in a coconut, topped off with an orange wedge and chili salt - just the way the Mexican’s like it.
