Went here with my wife when visiting her parents. Definitely had an "American" corporate feel to it, but after two weeks of amazing (but foreign) food and restaurants one welcomes such an experience. Premium and authentic seafood with the casual comforts of a well financed venture. Great mix of big pockets and local atmosphere. HIGHLY recommend!

Absolutely the best seafood restaurant in Tampico! I ate there on four separate occasions. Each time we were there, we were never disappointed. The food, atmosphere and service is second to none. The whole staff was engaged with each of our visits and were very attentive to our needs. My favorites were the shrimp and octopus from the grill. They... More

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
