Los Hijos de la Tostada- This restaurant knows tostadas!

Los Hijos de la Tostada seafood restaurant Playa Del Carmen

Los Hijos de la Tostada is a restaurant that features seafood tostadas in a creative and delicious manner that you should soon be stopping by here. Other seafood restaurants should be upping their game now with these tostadas on the menu.

The Menu at Los Hijos de la Tostada

There are tostadas (tostadas are a fried tortilla with topping that can be eaten with your hands and/or fork). The tostadas are seafood based with creative sauces. What we really like about their tostadas is some of them come on a semi sweet tasting fried base, the fresh seafood, and delicious sauces. For example the top photo is the “camaron roca” tostada. It is a battered shrimp tostada with chipotle dressing and then drizzled with a red wine reduction sauce.

There are hot and cold served tostadas. There are other non tostada menu items as well like ceviches.

Prices are about 38-62  pesos per tostada. These are a little more then other places but the value definitely makes up for it. Most people can eat about two tostadas for a meal.

At the original location there are a few small tables inside the restaurant in air-conditioning and bar stools at the counter. Outside there is sidewalk seating. This restaurant is a small corner bistro that is very casual.

The new location on 5th Avenue is a great place to sit and people watch and the vibe is casual and fun.


You have to be sure to go for lunch or dinner here while in Playa Del Carmen. The tasty meal will leave you satisfied and the friendly guys working there will take care of you. you get good value here and the combinations of sauces and seafood is very good.  We look forward to going back again to keep working our way through the menu, see you there!

  1. Best food on the Playa. Great vibe. Our favorite spot we discovered during a recent visit in April 2016.

  2. Hello! I loved your recommendations for this restaurant! We stopped here several times on our way to the beach. Always a youthful vibe and great tostadas. Plus the prices are very good. The portions on the tostadas are good as well.

      We are glad you found this restaurant! It does have nice consistent quality and they know what they are doing. They have good music and vibe going and good quality products coming out of the kitchen. We send a lot of people here and everyone seems to enjoy it, so that says a lot about it. We hope the rest of your trip was good as well.

      We have to agree with you Carla. They have done a good job with all aspects of this place and consistency is important. We are glad you are enjoying meals here. We stop here often as well.

  4. I saw your video on Los Hijos de la Tostada and it made we want to go. I went and tried the ones in your recommendation. They were great and thoroughly enjoyed that place.

  5. Fresh and filling! This was our favorite “new” place last February

    • Los Hijos is staying popular too! There are a few new places near here you will have to check out next time. Like Zero Zero Pizza and a new seafood restaurant. We will soon have the story and video on our site.
