It has been a few years now but they have the tastiest lobster I have ever had! Absolutely juicy, tender and full of flavor! That along with all their homemade sides you have a perfect meal! Just be prepared for a long line to get in. Cash only!

The lobster tacos are great, well served (whole lobster), beans & rice, salsas and good traditional music. The seafood creamsoup is ok, and dessert is a must!

This is the best place I've eaten seafood at! First off, the rice and beans were good and traditional. The tortillas, though, were FANTASTIC. Bigger than your face and has an undescribable taste and texture. The lobster, is the best I've had! Accompany it with that butter thing they have and guacamole! YUM. I also tried the breaded shrimp.

As sketchy as Mexico is lately, if you're in the area the place is worth a try. Big portions of lobster, with delicious tortillas. Reasonably priced food & beer. Overall one of the better lobster restaurants I've been to in Mexico. The restaurant itself is not the nicest or cleanest but ok for Mexico.

Food was O.K. but, for me, a little overpriced which is common in a tourist-oriented area catering to Americans.

This is a whole village devoted to lobster and sales. The restaurants are all much the same and same price. look for the crowds and eat there! the shops are cool and fairly hassle free but do barter! We had a great meal overlooking the sea (2nd to last restaurant in the street by the sea). Always get the margaritas!

This restaurant came highly recommended because it is right on the ocean in a village where there are only restaurants and street vendors and this restaurant apparently serves fresh lobsters as some others serve frozen lobster. The experience was cool, I liked the opportunity to shop for souvenirs but we waited 1 hour in line for this restaurant which obviously... More
