Delicious hidden gem just off the boardwalk

Doesn't look like much from the outside but has excellent and delicious fresh fish and seafood! Try the octopus or the house special pepper stuffed lobster! Although the host didn't speak much English, they had English menus so it was no problem!

Stopped in for a late breakfast/early lunch. 5 of us total. The other 4 had breakfast, me, noooo, I saw "chef's special" and went for the Octopus. Unfortunately, I'm still paying for it dearly, and it's been 4 days. They were very accommodating of my sons food allergies, and made him a fruit plate with bacon, right up his alley.... More

Stumbled across this little gem of a restaurant with my Sister-in-law while hunting for a budget worthy breakfast before a day of souvenir shopping. We were welcomed in by Ivan, one of the sweetest waiters in town. He sat us immediately even though we still had our fresh squeezed orange juice from a cart a couple of streets back. He... More

My wife and I typically like to seek out small restaurants away from the main areas. We stumbled across El Sazon one evening and it looked interesting, although only one table was occupied. We were greeted and served by the owner Ivan. It was getting late, for us, and we just wanted a small dinner before heading back to the... More

We walked by the restaurant and noticed a wonderful smell. Although the place was almost empty, we decided to give it a try and we not disappointed. The Chile Relleno with lobster is to die for and definitely our favorite dish and the Margerita was the best I had during my stay in Mexico. All other fish and seafood dishes... More

Don't miss this little gem of a restaurant - breakfast starts at $38 pesos. The owner greets you when you walk in and you feel genuinely welcomed too. Food was excellent and plentiful, service was prompt and the price was very reasonable. Go and eat there. You won't be sorry. We will be back.
