Been wanting to go there for a long time, and it did not disappoint. Best seats outside. Excellent greeting, in a clean lobby. Seated quickly, drinks came fast too. THe rib eye is awesome, big and tasty. It's a multi level restaurant, and its actually enjoyable going up and down the stair. Not far from the beach for after dinner stroll. The staff where great and friendly. It's a must to restaurant.

We always try to make room for a night at Layla's and again were reminded why. We had a table of the balcony over the street. We were welcomed like long lost family. This place goes out of it's way to make something to suit each individual's taste. I had the spicy margarita that has some chile in it to give it a zing, but is really delicious. They brought us complimentary little mugs of tequila granita to cleanse our palates. I had the oyster appetizer that was small individual oysters, lightly breaded and fried in a creamy sauce and beautifully presented. We had guacamole that was made at the table, fresh and sweet with baked tortilla chips. Two of us asked for them to make fresh vegetable enchiladas, which were not on the menu and to cover them with their hibiscus mole. This was one of the best mole recipes ever. We both did not want to finish our dinners, because it was so amazing. My husband had fusilli with chicken that was so full of meat and such a large portion that it lasted for two more days at home. The service is so intense and special and there is always a smile on everyone's faces. This is such a special and wonderful restaurant that is a must for anyone who loves great food and service. GIVE this a try!

I have enjoyed every item I have had here. Quality products with unique flavors and a wonderful service staff. Ready to accommodate any special dietary request. Recently remodeled and so inviting. A must go to restaurant. My favorites shrimp with grits, the oysters, duck and the best flan I have ever ate! Chocolate flavored flan with a spicy pineapple sauce WOW this was habit forming.

Fantastic food, and great service. The salmon was great, and the pork was perfect. Guacamole made right at the table!

Another outstanding dinner with the family at Laylas. Chef Rodrigo visited our table and celebrated with shots at the end of the meal. Pork shank, arrachera (?), pork tenderloin and steak were delicious! Had a really good raspberry mojito too.
