I love the food at this place. It's not upscale and it's adequate for going in a group or with just a few people. Prices are in a good range. The only down side I find is that you have to wait forever to get a table, even though they have reservations.

Went here for dinner after a long, long day which meant that we were ready to load up on a few different dishes. Tried some kind of crab dip and a caprese salad with ceviche instead of cheese both of which were very good. The main was a white fish with smoked peppers and a bit of rice, not as... More

This is a great little restaurant with fantastic seafood dishes! Some reviewers claimed the service was not so good but I found it to be great. While the waiters may come off as being inattentive, they are really being courteous I believe. The food is out of this world! I had the broiled octopus and it was great. Margaritas are... More

I really enjoyed my lunch here. A local took me and we enjoyed crab, oysters, shrimp and monkfish (I forget the Spanish word). Seafood was very fresh and properly prepared. Owner stopped by to ask about our meal, nice touch.

The variety of the menu is great, but the service is not so. They do not take care of reservations and very poor parking

Hands down, the best seafood in Tampico! IF there is a wait, it is worth it. I've been several times, and always try to arrive a little early. IF you are late, grab a cerveza, and enjoy the scenery!

Been here few times and though the seafood quality is probably the best you can find in Tampico, the service is far from excellent. The restaurant has been remodeled from the original small place it used to be and even then you knew you have to come with plenty of time to wait for your meal because they always seem... More
