Not my favorite place in Los Barilles--that's reserved for the potato stand--but we always head here 2-3 times every time we're down for the week. I recommend the grilled shrimp, but any of the grilled fish options are also good. They have tons of toppings for the tacos and hot sauce options. A 5 diamond restaurant, this is not, but... More

Very convenient place to eat breakfast. Tacos grilled or fried. The condiments are great. Coffee is a little expensive. The price for tacos is okay.

I have eaten here numerous time, most recently Apr.14. The food is always delicious and fresh. If you want quality, authentic Mexican tacos, this is the place. Fast, quality service, good food and cold beer is what you will get. I make a point of eating here every time I stop in Los Barriles. The various seafood tacos are the... More

Best local tacos of the seafood variety. Fish, shrimp, scallop, etc... all very fresh with a salsa bar that is the best in town. Great lunch or breakfast spot but get there early for lunch or you might not get a table. It is usually packed. Prices are extremely reasonable, the people are the friendliest, and the food is super... More

Husband loves the scallop tacos. i go for grilled shrimp, fish or usually carne with a big trip to the salsa/salad bar which is packed with my favorite hot peppers, fresh salsas, etc. and we... More

During our week in Los Barriles, we ate enjoyed El Viejo twice. Once we stopped and ate in this quaint little spot tucked along the "main drag" in town. We had been fishing and exploring the town, and got dropped off for a quick bite. Our server took our order, and quickly brought our food. However, we were not informed... More
