Really good food at this restaurant. The menu was quite big and there was a good selection of seafood. The service was quite slow, but once you see the size of the size of this restaurant, you understand why. I took the 1kg snook and it was delicious. Prices were a little high, but not extreme.

I got a snook fillet with a spicy sauce (buffeted). The taste was nice, it was well cooked. The service was good, the dishes were served on time and there were warm. I got the luck to listen "alive" a musical group. They were noisy and it was difficult to have a regular conversation because of the level of noise.... More

This Restaurant, being one of many "Mariscos" Restaurants in Veracruz, is best known for good service and good fresh fish and shrimps. Prices are very reasonable and I have always found the area to be clean and service to be very good. Its definately worth a visit on your own or with a family.

The restaurant is at the beach of Veracruz / Boca del Rio. I ate many times here and I always had very good food. My preferred food are the pulp prepared on the carbon and the totopos with fresh guacamole. The service is very good and usually very nice.

I am not a seafood lover but this was a good introduction to it. The wait staff is very good and attentive. They even showed us a huge fish and explained how they were going to cook it. We ordered a salmon fillet and two whole fish cooked in different styles. We were stuffed but the best part was when... More

We were invited to enjoy lunch at Villa Rica nearly two weeks ago and the memory of that meal still lingers. We left the choices of food to our hostess and man, were we ever pleased. Fresh fish on steroids!!! If we ever return to Veracruz, we will definitely make sure we enjoy at least one meal at Villw Rica.

Very nice place to have lunch or dinner, with a great assortment of dishes, entrees and seafood. A bit expensive, but it's worth it!
