Absolutely delicious, authentic Mexican seafood

I loved the food here! It's a family-owned restaurant, that is a local staple. Granted, it's not fine dining, but it was a thoroughly authentic experience and I would go back in a heartbeat. I had the most fresh, delicious lobster that I've ever eaten (though the butter was more like an oil... read more

Very popular spot on the Malecon especially on weekends .. Very Pleasant atmosphere . It is been around a long time and it's starting to show. the staff is very unattentive. The servers congregate either on the sidewalk or at the pass out bar. None of them roam or work the floor and look for customers needs. If you need... More

A good place where you can find mexican food of high quality. It appears (and it is) very big so you may be suspicious about quality but you have to try. Yes it is big but yes it has good and various food at a reasonable price. I've been there several times. Try cevice de pescado: que bueno!

The Bismarkcito has a great location, and because of that, I was suckered into getting tacos there a couple times too many. The restaurant itself is nothing special, with a kind of accelerated environment, and not really much of a view. The waiters are pushy if you only order tacos. And the tacos... are not very good. At least compared... More

The lobster was excellent. We found that one was big enough to share between two. The ceviche was mushy, not fabulous tasting. Service was good, not great. A caution: it was very windy. Take a sweater or jacket.

We went there a couple of times: it was ok, but nothing special compared to others. Prices are relatively high and service is not great. It is a good back up solution

A popular restaurant among some locals and some foreigners. The food is mediocre, the service is slow and bad. We ordered among other things, a lobster, that was incredibly small, overcooked (rubbery) and served with a "butter" that tasted more like cheap oil. The aguachile is a particular version, not very creative, made with red dried chillies instead of the... More

This place sucks. We were drinking just a couple of beers on Wednesday June 17th on this place. I paid with credit card for 77 pesos (5 dollars) and the surprise was that they have charge 5+5= 10 dollars for a couple of beers!! Be aware of this place. Check your statements. We are trying to speak with the manager... More
