Great location and menu, however the appetizer was great the main courses were not. Not worth the price.

We ate several items off the menu, and nothing was short of amazing. We had two orders of ceviche (the first one was SO good we ordered a second), a lobster taco, the tuna tostada, and the 3 chiles grouper. Everything was above and beyond expectatons. If I had two pick our two favorites, the ceviche and the tuna tostadas... More

We saw this restaurant while walking down the strip one night and decided to go back the next because I had a craving for shrimp. Such a good decision! I had the mezcal shrimp and my fiance had 2 lobster tacos because he was not very hungry. My shrimp were just delicious! Huge, juicy shrimp, with onion and fresh mushrooms.... More

I can't say too much more than the previous reviewers already have, except that I have never had more tender Octopus in my life & the Lime Marinated Shrimp w/ Serrano is AMAZING!!! I plan to eat here again at least one more time before returning to the states.

Enjoyable al fresco restaurant located about 24th Calle on 5th Ave. Small restaurant, great service. Shrimp Cocktail was great. Lot's of tasty shrimp in almost a gazpacho-like tomato sauce with squid . One of us had Tuna Asian (seared) very fresh and done perfectly. One of us had Lime Habanero shrimp, which was lightly seared. Great service. Excellent people watching... More

This restaurant is located at the north end of 5th avenue and is therefore affected by the less amount of tourists strolling along on their search for a good place to eat. And that is truly sad for the many tourists who don't bother to walk all the way up 5th avenue. Molusko is a restaurant with great food, kind... More
