If you like seafood and reasonable prices, do not miss this restaurant. Local cuisine, tastes, flavors, colors, customs, etc., etc., can certainly be tasted in their dishes. Attended with 20 of the family, got to try everything, could not stop eating! Thank you for the service as well!

My emphasis is food, prepared and presented as it would be at a local home. Having visited restaurants and homes in Veracruz for twenty years, I can say this is it. In fact, friends kid me about paying the restaurant "when we have the same thing at home." Fortunately, I have both. I have been to El Bayo numerous times,... More

Very good seafood, it has several locations, some with a better view than others but the food is good no matter where you go.
