Best seafood restaurant ever. Amazingly dedicated service.

A must see restaurant in Mexico City. This place is an institution which is so much deserved. Their sea food is delicious. The service is impeccable with waiters running around like crazy to anticipate your needs. Very vibrant place.

Definitely their seefood is good (could be better but is ok) although their drink prices are kinda highed up and their wine sections isn't as Mexican as it should be but still, you'd enjoy your meal. However, the thing that could be an issue would be that it tends to get really crowded, so don't forget to book first. Oh!... More

Fun restaurant to visit in Mexico City. My partner and I, along with a Mexican friend, visited for a relaxed luncheon experience. We were the earliest table (12:30 p.m. reservation), and this was good because the restaurant slowly but surely picked-up and was completely packed by the time we were almost finished. The noise level rose as well, so, if... More

I think my hopes for this restaurant were too high based on things that I had heard. We had a reservation so we did not have to wait very long for our table in the sea of folks waiting. The space is nice with lots of light and many staff members circling around taking care of the diners. The service... More

I can't enough good things about this restaurant. With a terrific location, ambiance, service, food, and overall vibe this place quickly became a favorite restaurant of mine. I've referred many people here. I'm a frequent solo traveler and it meant a lot to me that they provide exemplary service to a party of one. Don't be afraid to try the... More
