Salsa for chips that was so good we asked to take some with us. but nicest of all was how friendly the place was. Yes, only one an and a chef did it all, but there were only a couple of... More

A fine example of the Mexican "hole-in-the-wall" food establishment, except only in the physical dimension. There are maybe ten tables inside and four outside with no restrooms. It is almost "serve yourself" with one wait person doing multiple tasks. As for the food, let's start with the good: the chips are outstanding; fresh made on site. That's it. Now the... More

Fish tacos were terrific. Very simple little place. Not fancy, but very high quality and friendly. Try the homemade flan for dessert.

I agree with the reviewers who say this is the best Mexican Seafood Restaurant in town. It is definately my favorite local place to eat. Anything on the menu with shrimp or scallops you can bet is a winner. Also, all of their breakfast burritos are the best! Great place for business, families, friends or I've even gone there alone....

Not a fancy location or ambiance. The tables are simple, but the food is not. Shrimp Diablo is one of my favorites. Cold beer available too.

Whenever we are craving seafood, this is my family's all time favorite spot. Plus it's one of those places that you feel home at since the servers treat you that way. We haven't made a wrong food choice yet. Everything has been great! We especially love the seafood chipotle pasta!

I was expecting a hole-in-the-wall kind of place, but the restaurant is really lovely, charming decor! Food was great, delicious fish tacos. The staff were excellent, so friendly and gracious. Service with a big heart and smile.
