We had dinner here our last night on Isla. I can't say enough about this great little restaurant. It is very casual, like most places in Isla. You can dine under the tent or right out on the beach, looking up at the stars. We had the battered fish, and the coconut fish, both were grouper filets, and they were... More

Like most beach restaurants in Mexico, this place is nothing fancy. What it does offer, however, is excellent fresh fish dishes with generous portions at very reasonable prices. The staff were very friendly and attentive. This is a great spot for lunch.

Wonderfully fresh fish filets grilled to perfection. This quaint restaurant is in a perfect location on the beach. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly and helpful. The only downside is the restaurant-no toilet seat. A bit too primitive when you're trying to enjoy a wonderful meal.

Very good fish for lunch. Fresh and comes whole. My kids loved playing with it's teeth. If you are not into fish looking at you then don't get this but the taste is wonderful! My kids ate most of it. They are 1 and 3. Nice views of the harbor area and the fishing boats too. Very reasonable price for... More

I really wanted to like this place, as it was recommended by a friend. It has that kind of old world, family run feeling that is very appealing. The setting is gorgeous, right on the beach, although it is definitely nothing fancy. I had the garlic shrimp and got terribly sick that night. Montezuma's revenge for about 12 hours. I... More

Set right by the water nearby the ferry, it's difficult to picture a more idyllic setting for dinner. Lapped by the sea from which your dinner came that day, Valazquez produces simple, fresh food that is, most importantly, delicious. We had the shrimp (more like king prawn to us Brits!) tacos along with the house speciality, garlic snapper. Delicate and... More

Great fish, reasonably priced, fun to watch the boats and fishermen, including the huge catch of lobsters that came in while we looked on last Saturday. A great place to while away the afternoon, toes in the sand, with a beer and a basket of chips and guacamole. Loved the fish in mojo de ago (garlic sauce) and the seviche... More

We really like this beach seafood place. The cooking is down to earth but very good and hearty. We loved to eat any meal by the beach w/ our toes in the sand. Fun place to watch the local fishermen with their boats.

If you enjoy eating the freshest seafood while sitting with your toes in the sand and watching the tide hit the beach then Velazquez is the place for you. The food was so fresh and the atmosphere was so relaxing that we ate there twice during our one week stay. The menu is overly complicated, which is nice. We asked... More
