Hands down, this was one - if not the best - Mexican meals of my life. I ordered the pulpo tacos and was telling a friend how octopus is typically sort of tough and chewy...little did I know that I'd never actually had it prepared well. The pulpo tacos were amazing!!! I also ordered the Tostada al la Frank, which... More

The restaurant is a very colorful place , very busy and crowded. Menu is extensive, and includes a wide variety of seafood. I had the ¨coctel de cayo-almeja¨ which was a raw mollusk prepared with the house sauce. Very good. Also had the grilled octopus, which was excellent. Would definitely visit this place on a different trip to Tampico.

I had fried shrimp with guacamole and Tampico style fish filet. Shrimp tasted great but it was kind a difficult to eat as it fried over the tail and crust. Fish was fresh and exquisitely charcoal grilled. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to eat quality seafood.

Order during lunch time, with other 3 guys, the place was quite empty. Order four, two came very fast, and the remaining two never arrived, the waiters forgot it.

This is a perfect restaurant to hold a really enjoyable meeting, with perfect food, anything is delicious. And the music is really good. It might be expensive a bit, but, if your company is paying, give it a try.

We made a reservation for lunch at 1:00 PM, and I was so glad that I did, because it was mayhem thirty minutes later. When we arrived (roughly around 12:45 PM) we found parking available. The parking space was extremely small, but I though it would be OK, since we had a compact car. When we tried to leave the... More

My wife ordered the shrimp cocktail, stuffed crabs, and sea bass! I ordered the Tampiquena type steak. Everything was cooked to perfection! Plating, seasoning, and temp. I will recommended... More

Went there today as a result of the positive comments on Tripadvisor. It surely didn't dissapoint me. The seafood was really really fresh and very tasty, unfortunately I couldn't taste all the dishes but will go back there again.
