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!

On almost every trip to Veracruz, I make this one of my first restaurant choices for dinner. Finding the place can be a bit tricky, but once there one can enjoy freshly prepared seafood within striking distance of the beach. Service is very good, can come across a bit sales-y (recommending high priced specials), so staying with menu is always... More
