Delicious seafood!

The service was amazing, the food: outstanding, leave some room for dessert! Make sure to ask for the grilled fish and seafood for starter, the open fish with 2 salsas as a main to share and every single dessert is just worth it! It's a little pricey tough.

The menu is extensive, the service is top quality, the hustle and bustle of the restaurant makes it lively and delicious. It is the scene and the food that make it charming and memorable!

The food is mostly very good, although the house special fish-on-a-plank was a tad overcooked and dry. At these prices, however, that's a problem. Probably one of the most expensive restaurants in Mexico City.

Often frequented- always guaranteed to be fresh and delicious. Service is extremely fast and marks a GIANT contrast from the standard "floorgazing" table staff at most restaurants in the city. Invariably busy, but given the fast service, a table is often available within minutes.

Great food and great service in a very nice neighborhood. I had the tostada de atun and the arroz negro. Both were really really good! I highly recommend it

The seafood is very good in this casual and trendy place in Mexico City. Since it opened it had all the ingredients for success and has proven its worth for over a decade now. It has become expensive because its so trendy and you will have to wait for a table but worth the visit. A place to go to... More

We joined the ranks of people queuing on a Sunday lunchtime, but were happy to find out we could be seated straight away as we didn't mind sitting at the bar. Service was as excellent as you'd expect from a well known restaurant. We had the tuna tostadas to start (marinated raw tuna thinly sliced on top of tostada with... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend who had eaten here before. It is a large and bustling establishment. You can get an idea of how a place is regarded locally by the type and number of people eating at any given moment and this place was packed with locals. The service was excellent and our waiter clearly knew what... More

This was definitely the best lunch I had in Mexico City. My mouth is watering thinking of all the ceviches we dined on. Everything was amazing from the salads, tacos, to ceviches, and top notch service. Definitely a fantastic place for people watching in cool neighborhood!
