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

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

Great food and service and beautiful view. Just got to La Paz a few days ago, and I was looking for a sea food place. Not disappointed, I will come back. Keep up The great work.

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

Popular seafood restaurant with locals and expats, right on the waterfront. Went for lunch and the place had filled up in no time. Good service and food was great. Worth a visit.

Worth going there to eat one of La Paz best seafood. I love the fish tacos. One of the best from La baja. The menu is realy big and with a lot of potions. Generous portions, fair prices and amazing taste. highly recommended

We ordered a litre of ceviche to take away on our trip to Isla Espiritu Santo. It was the best i have every fried - loads of it and really fresh and tasty. The restuarant is also nicely laid out with a bgreat menu. Worth trying.

They are known for their Chocolate clams and seafood...they are really good! Not so good for breakfast, we didnt like how they cook the eggs and not much came with it and the beans were runny.
