If you like a great grouper filet that would cost 25 us or more in the States for about 6usd, then this is the place for you. Everything else is traditional Mexico where common sense prevails and there is zero pretense. Faded plastic chairs, tinny flatware, cheap paper napkins, maybe a Walmart plastic bag blowing past your table, a few... More

Six of us ordered a sampling of the food; it included calamari mix, crabs, shrimp, grouper, some other fish fillet and served with fries, beans, rice, salad. It also included a flat piece of grilled chicken - not sure why - but that was good as well. We all enjoyed the food and no one went away hungry!

We enjoyed our ceviche and drinks here, but the fish entree was definitely off. The fish was mushy and seemed frozen rather than fresh. Location was pretty on the water, and service was fine.

We dined here in early January. We were seated rather quickly by staff. Our waiter took the order but lacked any extra effort to make us feel welcome. My wife had heard this was such a great place for seafood. I ordered coconut shrimp and she had the fried squid dinner. It was quite apparent that both had been fried... More

Stopped here on our first day after travel. Looking for good fish and margaritas. Both were delicious. And yummy guacamole. Bring cash. No credit cards.

A fellow traveler recommended Velazquez and said how great the whole fish and shrimp dishes are. After we had dinner, I thought perhaps we had gone to the wrong place and checked the name again the next day. I read the reviews posted here and I wonder what was so wrong with our meals. We had dinner here earlier this... More

Fresh fish with the boats that caught the fish right there. Nothing fancy about it and in fact it wouldn't be open in the states but this is Mexico. You eat and sit on plastic chairs with sand beneath your feet. Grouper and snapper cooked the way you want it. Shrimp and chicken too. Cheap and if it was any... More

Really just reiterating other reviews, but it warrants repeating. You come, you sit with your feet in the sand facing the water, you eat extraordinary food (primarily seafood), and you don't break the bank. Friendly staff to boot. What's not to love? Only regret is that we didn't go back a second time, but we only had two days here... More

Wanted fish and they did not disappoint us. Super service and the food was very tasty. Enjoyed watching the happenings at the nearby dock.
