Amazing food very filling

Service was okay because they were very busy. Busy full restaurants say a lot! Probably some of the best seafood ever!

The decor is the only thing lacking in that restaurant.I go frequently because there is no better seafood restaurant in town,I tried them all. The food is excellent,plentiful and reasonless priced. Try the baked clam filled wit shrimp and cheese.Delicious!!

Had a good offer of seafood, service is average due to big place and very noisy Will be a good place for family launch with overpriced plates for the town nonetheless It looks an hygienic place compared with the street cars

This is a locals seafood place not a tourist trap. be prepared to mimic and point at pictures. food is very good and plenty of it. I don't care for the way they make their micheladas, but it may just be the Corona ber?

We recommend the "ESTOFADO" with pescado (fish) and camaron (shrimp). It is light, delicious, perfectly cooked, with all the flavors in perfect harmony. Absolutely exquisite. YUM, YUM, YUM! BUT, go early. They open around 9 or 10am and close around 7 or 8pm.

Felt rushed the whole time until I asked for the bill. While I understand Spanish, they have a HUGE menu so it took me a bit to figure out what to order especially since I had forgotten the Spanish word for oysters. I had a waiter (not always the same waiter) coming up impatiently every minute or so for my... More
