The sea bass,(corvina), was extraordinary! Actually, we ordered several different dishes and they were all delicious but the sea bass... superb!

Best paella, crab and sea food delights. The prices are good compared to the awesome quality of the food. They have a delicious spicy sauce and the vibe is excelent. They have a dress code and it makes it very interesting, dont come in sandals or boorad shorts! You wont be aloud.

This place was supposed to be amazing; it was good. The service was great but the food wasn't. Had th mixed seafood platter for two. It was quite salty. If you're looking for an upscale place, you may like this restaurant. But in my opinion, you can get tastier seafood elsewhere...

The atmosphere: There wasn't a tourist in sight on the "wharf". It's clearly not an upperclass spot either; but full of local families and friends ready to eat some cheap, fresh, delicious seafood. The place is bustling and LOUD. It is not a place for a quiet, calm meal. How to order: You cruise down the strip of seafood kiosks,... More

OK it's not the cheapest place about (not that it's particularly expensive either). It is however very, very good. We went Saturday evening and did not have to book. It was good to see most of the diners were local. Our waiter was very helpful and made recommendations for us. Marisco is seafood so it was obvious to concentrate on... More

Having made a reservation 3 weeks prior to our Valentine's day dinner, I was quite upset to learn upon arriving that the reservation had not been documented. After the initial fluster among the staff, we were quickly accommodated and taken upstairs to a very sterile feeling, conference style, large room with zero romantic ambience. The menu options were small so... More

Business dinner. Got there at 7:45PM Third time there because it is close, walking distance from Marriott. The place is nice, big windows, interesting decor, multiple levels. Drinks decently served. Service is prompt and diligent. Good, warm bread Ordered Pulpo a la Gallega (Octopus)....which was good. Ordered the lobster salad and wanted to add avocado, but there was no avocado... More

A classic, old-school restaurant featuring Spanish traditional fish fare, la Casa del Marisco is a good choice for an elegant night out. The snails were excellent and full of garlic, good al around Boquerones and other entrées were also well executed Main dishes were well presented and Service was a bit spotty -although it was a busy night Furthermore, paying...

Apparently it used to be a bank, but the architecture is very interesting. There is a wall of glass looking out on a beautiful tropical garden. There is a "sunken" dining area, with elegant table decor. The warm, fresh, sourdough bread was delicious. I don't usually eat bread but this was irresistible! Very good service. They didn't have the fish... More
