Years ago I used to visit this place more frequently, now I returned after several years and found a new and improved venue but a more average food. The restaurant is currently next to the beach, making the venue more appealing. Also it became more spacious and comfortable. It did improve in such manner. However, my feeling is that food... More

I went to the restaurant by the Mocambo hotel. The staff was very helpful and got our meal out quick. I had the filete relleno de mariscos dish and also tried the refried beans and platanos con crema. Flavor was out of this world. The restaurant is right on the beach and kids can go out and play while you... More

I have been going to Villa Rica in Veracruz for several years and It has been always a great experience, the food is very good, prices are reasonable and service is excellent. It is always full on weekends, but if you wait, it's worth it.

This second Villa Rica is less crowded than the original and service is slower, but the seafood is still first rate. We went on Labor Day, when many restaurants were closed, and there was over an hour wait to get in to the original Villa Rica. So we drove to the new Best Western Boka at c. Ruiz Cortinez #1997,...

This is my first review here, even though I have searched Tripadvisor many times in order to organize my travels. This restaurant is amazing!! The MOCAMBO location deserves a visit not just while in Veracruz, but while in Mexico. I ate the most fresh, delicious, elegant and clear OYSTERS I have ever eaten in my half century life! The restaurant... More

The hotel steered us here, with a discount card. Usually I distrust such places, and my first impression was doubtful. It looks like a set for 'Gilligan's Island', for one thing. But! The food was terrific, in two visits. Portions were quite generous, the menu selection is enormous, and the service was world-class. Try the sashimi appetizer, and the crab... More

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.
