Excelent food, beautiful place and good service. A litttle bit slow serving drinks. We really liked it. The creme brulee of coconut was by far the best dessert

Great choice of sea food, everything tasted. The service was quick, friendly and well organized. Mexican cordiality at its best. This is the place not to miss in Veracruz.

It had been seven years since I last visited this place and I'm pleased to say that it's still fantastic. The dining area is more than twice the size it was when I last went there but that hasn't affected the quality of the food or service. Fantastic fresh seafood.

We visit the restaurant with lots of friends with business purpose. This was one of the restaurants we attended. Very lovely and romantic to go with your couple in a full moon night. The fish its great and fresh. Do not order other food cause its not that tasty, I recommend only fish. The Clerico its great wih fresh fruit.
