The quality of the food is excellent, and the preparing is excellent. This was my first visit to this restaurant, and I tried a little bit... More

I will not spend much time dissecting every little aspect of the food, service, setting, etc. I will only say that this place has awesome food, just the way I like it and probably just the way you will enjoy it...

We got to Contramar early so we had all the waiters to ourselves and could slowly watch the place fill up. Great wine, great food - especially the Tostadas de atun!

Simply excellent - you can taste the freshness of the fish in every bite - cooked in a way that conserves the moisture and the taste - this is the way fish and seafood should always be! Service by the way also excellent even on the week-ends when really crowded - this place deserves every Peso of its success!

Among the business people there were many Americans who obviously have read about this place and flock there for the fresh seafood and refreshing cocktails. Definitely book in advance and try to get a table around 2:30 pm. Lots of energy inside, but a sidewalk table... More
