Without doubt the best seafood tacos & tostadas around. So delicious, fresh & amazing salsas to eat with too. Grest staff, easy to find location near the best stretch of beach. Visited 3 times.

We were recommended this place by a local and man was it good. The menu is in English but none of the staff spoke much. That is when you are in the right spot. The food is outstanding. This area of Playa is where the up and coming chefs are opening up places. No surprise but it is outside the... More

This amazing little place was our first here in Playa- the staff is wonderful, the food was mind blowing. They bring you out chips and a giant array of salsas- that starts the plan. Known for their ceviches, we got the "big" one, and it was amazing. Fresh is the notable point, with piquant and perfectly spiced also weighing in.... More

Good: the food, ceviche, fried fish, fish tacos Not Good: maybe it was the day we went, but we got stale tostadas with our ceviche. We were going to let it slide because we hate complaining, but we had to get good tostadas with our ceviche in MEXICO, so we asked for new ones. We noticed our waitress getting more... More

Their mixed ceviche ranks as one of the bed meals I have ever had. When I asked one of the waiters at our hotel, "where would you go for fresh and delicious ceviche," he mentioned Los Aguachiles -- telling me that he and his girlfriend eat there regularly. Instantly, I knew it had to be good when a local recommends... More

My son, who lives in the area, brought us here. Since it is not along the "strip" I may have missed it if traveling by. We sat outside and enjoyed some live music, and some even livelier locals seated next to the musicians and having a good time. Festive atmosphere. They have two menus, one in english and one in...

We went to aguachiles with a group of 12 people and the service and food is great. It's not a fancy place but if you appreciate good food and friendly staff this is the place to go. The grilled octopus is one of the best plates.

On a recent trip to Playa, we went to Aguachiles for the first time on a recommendation. This is a diamond in the rough. If you like shrimp and other types of seafood, this is the place for you. All of the dishes we tried we great and the homemade sauces were the perfect addition. This is not a spot... More
